Leaves, leave!!!! I can see we will be mowing the lawn in the snow again this year. I mulch everything, never bag a leaf or anything organic, so we use my tractor to mow and mulch at the same time.. still will not turn furnace on, have to go get that filter from HVAC place first. I have a high end air filter an humidifier on my furnace/AC, so I need to get it and install it before I fire up the furnace. With our asthma and allergies, it is just as important as heat all winter.
The first time I pulled that big accordian filter out and saw the dust, dirt,etc on those gabillion panels, I about fainted!! No wonder we were always sick with my old furnace!!
I hope that those who already are living and/or traveling in the snowy areas, have taken the time to tune up, fill car fluids, check battery, tires,etc .. Getting stranded and covered by snowplow snow can be deadly!! Around here, we have huge (ten-fifteen foot)high ditches and a few times people have slid off the road into them and been buried by snow and have not been found for days or a week!!
I think I may start the 'ol vacation countdown ticker soon.Yes, that is how much I hate autumn and winter!
