I’ve decided with the leaves turning their pretty fall colors, WINTER IS HERE!
Even though the last leaf has yet to drop, even though we haven’t moved the clocks yet, I’m over it. Time to move on to the mentality of winter. Better to embrace it now than wake up freezing in mid-December looking at the calendar and creating a paper chain to countdown to the first day of spring.
The Seattle P-I has a great article today to help me make this mental leap.
You should check it out and get your own little homestead ready for those crazy days of power outages and snow storms. I mean they’re going to happen right? Why not spend a couple weekend afternoons getting ready now?
That is of course you like to dig around in the dark looking for your last battery to complete your set for an old rusted flashlight that only gets bright enough to see a foot in front of your freezing nose.
It’s your choice.
