heh, good point.
I spent the long weekend (we have Thanksgiving in October up here)
getting my house ready for winter. Final cutting of the grass (for
about four or five months -- I won't be cutting it again until February
or March), making sure I've got firewood in the house (we're heating
with electricity this year (which is gonna sting), but have a wood
furnace for backup), and putting more gravel on the driveway (patching
holes and building up the approach to the road; they just repaved it and
there was a 4-5" difference in height... we all drive trucks so it's not
a real problem, but it's a smoother ride now). You know, clearing up
whatever I won't want to do in the rain, snow, sleet, ice, or otherwise
generally shitty weather.
It's the middle of October, and I'm out there in shorts and a t-shirt
(sweating!) getting ready for winter. Something's weird here....
(fwiw, where I live now we do sometimes lose power in the winter,
sometimes for a few days at a time. These preparations are important.)
