The "Sun is Setting Between the Trees" Again!

After we moved to Garrett County several years ago I began watching where the sun sets relative to the trees on our property as the seasons march forward. Why? Because, 1) We have four very distinct seasons here (winter can be brutal) and 2) Planning for what's ahead is important.

As I've posted in the past, when the sun begins setting between two "particular" trees in our yard, I've learned it's also time to prepare for fall and winter. That means oil changes and cleaning/inspection of the machines I'll need to depend on soon (leaf blower, generator, snow thrower, etc.)

We may not like the fact that we're over half way between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox, but Labor Day isn't far away. In Garrett County...fall usually comes sooner rather than later.

Good news/Bad news. The setting sun has reached the trees. Don't panic, there's still plenty of time to check out your equipment before dealing with the inevitable.

Personally? I like the falls and winters here in the mountains. But, make no mistake, it's a'comin'...

I'm already seeing birds flocking as of about 2 weeks ago.

Not too serious yet, but it's happening.

And, the Indians are collecting firewood like crazy!
