Well, it’s mid October which means that it’s time to start thinking about Winter. Before you know it, the snow will be falling!

That’s pretty close to our elevation which really inspired my husband to kick it into gear and perform his annual snowblower maintenance procedures. He also spent some time making sure our snow plow was ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at us this season.
