Sad, is it not?

I'm ready. The house is prepped, the tarp is in place on the roof (hope to avoid ice damming this year), firewood is stacked, the gazebo is stored, screens are down, perennials are trimmed and dead overhanging branches are gone. Thanks to Rosa for helping with some of that! I found my boots, coats, gloves, hats... and then to the garage!

The lawnmower is prepped and I started the snowblower. Then the motorcycle was readied -- stabilized the gas, lubed the chain, connected the battery tender and covered it with an old sheet.

Today I had the snow tires put on, oil changed, the cold weather kit readied to go in the car.

Scary, isn't it?

{sigh}. It's here. The forecast is for snow on Saturday.

For those of you who live in California, Florida, Africa and Australia, "eat your heart out". Get ready for some outstanding winter pictures! Starting with "The Gales of November" up on Lake Superior next week!

The garage shot is from yesterday. The others from last year -- a reminder of things to come!
