It's off to our condo in Naples, FL tomorrow. One hurricane just past over the area and headed out to the gulf while others are looming in the Atlantic. They could interfere with our return next week.
This has been a difficult summer. Hot, humid and stormy. I haven't been able to get much accomplished outside. I will have numerous chores awaiting me when it cools off: finishing cleaning up the mess from May's storm, tons of wood to split, routine pruning, back porch repair work, etc. On and on the list goes.
Soon the chimney will be cleaned and I still have a little work to do on the snow blower before declaring that ready for what lies ahead. Speaking of which. There are two almanacs out there: Old Farmer's Almanac and Farmer's Almanac. The first calls for a relatively mild, dry winter while the second predicts the complete opposite-very cold and snowy. Guess one I'll be rooting for!
Next up: a report on how work turned out in our condo.
