Forcast is low 20s to mid 30s Tuesday and chance of snow. Glad I put the lawn mowers up yesterday! Fire Truck is all coverd to protect it. Moving the Generator to the Lower Garage so I won't have to hear it if I have to run it this year. We let the rest of the Cows in off open range tonight they were whining by the gate into the pasture with the barn. They made a dash to get inside it! Guess I should get the chains handy for the tractor if needed, don't want them coverd with snow. Probley fill up the rest of the fuel containers for the winter this week also so I can have about 80 gals on hand not counting vehicals. Mark H.

As for the rest of ya, anyone that's either working a year ahead on far wood, or sitting in shorts in an october snow storm just ain't right.

Oh well.. I learned a lesson too..
For the next hurricane season I'll buy a generator and fill a big freezer with gallons of water, so we'll have some ice...

We really should set up a heat exchanger between BC and PR.. Still pretty warm here. I'm sitting here, wearing only shorts, doors and windows wide open and still too warm at complete darkness at 8:50 pm..

I can't tantalize you the way Gerrit can (sorry) but I worked up an honest sweat this afternoon cleaning out the mower storage shed. That's a gamble roof barn about 12x15 ft. where the mower and a LOT of other junk is stored.

Cool this morning at 50 deg. but topped out at 82 deg. with lots of sun and a nice breeze. It will probably be another three weeks before we see first frost.

I know, "Rub it in. Rub it in."

We just had high winds, heavy rain and a bad lightning storm go thru here! Some guy maroned on his boat on a lake turned down help to be taken to dry area and leave his boat?? I would be real mad if I went out to save him in this storm and be told I will weather it out??@@!! Mark H.

Stacking four more cord & then I am finished for the winter here in MI. It is a comfort to view the entire winter heat source. An energy shortage is a non-issue at my mini farm.

The propane gas furnance? Can't afford to use it!
