It's the fall again

Recommended Posts

In the northeast the tics are running rampant check your body, your clothes, your pets and look on the floor for those fat looking raisenets in a gray color. (Tics)

Time to clean your clothes dryer and vent pipe.

Clean your fireplace and woodstove chimney. Reseal your seams on the pipes with furnace cement. Check for leaks.

Clean the oil burner or replace the filter on your gas furnace.

Turn off and disconnect your hoses from your outside faucets.

Fill your windshield washer with the antifreeze soap.

Check your radiator for antifreeze.

Fill your tires with air the cold weather shrinks them.

Put your snow brush in your car now.

Put your snow shovels near your door.

Time to put seafoam in your equipment. It keeps the gas fresh in the tank. Run it for a while with the seafoam in it.

Put extra warm clothes in your car. Boots, hats, gloves, plastic bag.

Don't remind me of all the things I haven't done yet. Not to mention hanging up the rods, cleaning the waders, unspooling the reels, taking back the canoe from the lake and so many more things I don't like to do.

Dry here too.  But I'm sure the wet stuff is coming.  Am going to enjoy fishing in shorts for a few more days and even some dry golf with the wife.  When the rain comes it'll be nice.

I was just thinking the other day that since I just moved to Florida three weeks ago,it still seems like summer to me. Not sure what to expect here for fall and winter.

Don't forget to check for bigfoot

We gotta check for those too???  I just hired an exterminator and I thought he would just set up some traps or something. Maybe put out some poison or spray around the rafters. This is why I hate winter. :wacko:

This might be the most prepared I've been for winter in history. Motorhome is tarped and winterized(normally I remember to do that about 9:00pm the first night it dips into the 20's. Outside hoses are rolled up and put away. Lawn is in good shape. Stocked up on firewood (ran out last year after a 7 day power outage).  Brand new Michelin X-Ice tires on wife's car, some used junkyard tires for my DD to replace what might as well have been racing slicks. I did think about going fishing today, maybe next week if the weather holds out. We just set a record for October rain levels. I saw blue sky today and thought I was imagining things.

So far this season has offered me great bass fishing and it's going to get better the next couple months.
