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.
