Today I am going to bring in my skeletons,spiders,and my big pumpkin head. We have a few things in the yard that will need to be put in the garage so they don't fly around. Wood for the wood stove is going to be put on the porch. Our light for the chicken coop got put up yesterday,and the main door that we keep open during the nice,warm weather will be closed. We will fill the feed and water dispensers up and they will be all set.
Rick put boards up on our screen windows in the mud room. Partially because of the storm-Irene blow out some of our screens-but also because we want to use the room this winter. We do still need to put some flashing up between the house and the mudroom,because it leaks.
The worst part of it will be,of course,in those areas where it lands and the immediate surrounding areas,and we are keeping the folks in it's direct path in our thoughts.
We will have to see what happens as the weather forecast is updated during the day.
If you are reading this and are in it's path,please stay safe.
