We've been warned: a polar plunge is on the way! Due to a temperamental typhoon half way 'round the world, half the country (including noTTafarm!) will experience the first sub-freezing signs of winter early this week. Scott and I took advantage of this "last" sunny weekend to winterize some stuff outside. I cleaned out several planters, took the patio umbrella to the barn, and disassembled the hammock. Scott had the more hazardous chore of climbing up on the roof to clean leaves out of the gutters. He got pretty clever and took the leaf blower with him.
