45.5 down under? Well, I just rearranged the garages, placed the snowblower in my garage, serviced and gassed it, gassed the generator, put brooms and small shovels and scrapers in both weehicles, put large shovels near the doors of each garage and inside my house by the back door, bungee corded one large shovel to the railing at my back door, and parked my truck with the back of the cab in line with the front of my house.
It was clear and sunny and 4C this afternoon with a 40kph NW wind that died to nare a strip o wind two hours before dark! First NW this fall when it was less than 10C. I can smell it! New moon on the 13th... any time within the next 24 to 96 hours we will have our first "winter". It won't be bad but we will see the face of Old Man Winter. Miserable old git that he can be.
Now, I could be wrong but my old man taught me well... we'll see.
Freda... 45.5C? That is insufferable! My heart sweats for you!
