The leaves are incredibly vibrant – gold, yellow, red, rust, and light green. The apple picking is “just right.” Squirrels are scurrying around to collect nuts and acorns. Neighbors are installing new energy-efficient windows and doors. (I bet the squirrels are grateful that all they need to do is find a nice tree!) And where did the robins go? On our recent jaunt to Hinckley Lake, we saw flocks of geese and ducks over head – presumably heading south.

All of these signs point to the annual transition from Fall to Winter (for those of us in the north/northeastern US). Store up and prepare for cold times ahead. Or head south? Hmm…now that’s an idea!

Enjoy winterizing!
