This weekend I spent most of my free time prepping things for the impending ice, snow, and freezing temperatures. Later on this week they're calling for 0-1°C, enough to freeze outside water hoses and fountains, and if they're not winterized, there will be carnage. Needless to say hours were spent winterizing lawn mowers, weed eaters, leaf blowers, chain saws, etc., to ensure that they'll actually start next spring. Fuel stabilizers were added, gas was topped up, and things were cleaned before being put away into the back of the shed. Snow blowers were then hauled out, dusted off, primed, oil changed, and then fired up to run for a half hour... ready to go for the upcoming winter. Same for the gas generator, just in case shit gets real. FOCUS: Winter... what do you do to transition into it? Do you have to, and is it a big deal?
