    Is there any Aker preparing for the upcoming winter?

    Here in northern Quebec winter is
    Very cold : -30 -35 is commun
    Very long : some people say that there's only two seasons : The last winter and the next winter.
    And there's a lot of snow : we can barely see house from the street.

    Winter car shelter, garden preparation, tire change, snowblower maintenance, small trees covering, plastic films on interior windows, etc. There's a lot to do each year.

    Winter means no more big DIY audio project, but it's a good time for music listening. With a good strong beer like an American Barleywine it's perfect.

    -21 is mot enough it's getting lower than that for sure.

    As for snow we have to put this snow un front of our house that's why house disapears

    We don't have THAT much winter down here but it can be very changeable - cold, warm, dry, wet, snow, ice, you name it. Sometimes all in the same week.

    I burn wood and this year I have not split my big fat wood chunks yet. Oh, they're dry, stacked under cover for at least a year or even two, but I need to rent the splitter for a weekend. Then a lot of hauling and stacking.

    Also my half of the garage looks like a bomb went off in a thrift store. :biggrin: Gotta get that tidied up so I can get the car in.

    But it's still 70-80F here so we're not rolling up the sidewalks just yet.

    BTW winter is when I do most of my audio DIY stuff. Or the middle of summer. When the weather sucks too much to go outside, so I huddle in the basement working on junk. :thumbsup:

    Of course I'm planning, it happens every year ;-)
    2+ cords of firewood are ready to burn. Woodstove and chimney will be cleaned in the coming weeks. Boiler was cleaned and serviced a few weeks ago. Oil tank was filled last month. Here in Southern Maine -15F is not unheard of. In my 31 years here I've seen -20F once or twice. That's f-n cold. 0 to -10 is more typical, still cold! Snowfall has definitely increased in recent years. Having 3' or more on the ground is becoming normal. Being 8 miles from the ocean that is no mean feat due to the mitigating marine affect.

    Last time I went to Florida, people were saying that it was cold. I fell strange to wear shorts and t-shirt in the morning or enjoying a dip in the ocean.:D
