I may have to start the outdoor wood boiler sooner this year, as the cold weather is already present. Looks like we could even get a dusting of snow this weekend. As my photographic excursion to the Keweenaw Peninsula was turned from film to digital (iPhone and hipstamatic) by rain and drizzle last week, I may try for better luck this Sunday. Saturday looks to be too sunny and there are chores around Rauhallinen Farm that need to be accomplished, namely some trim painting, before it gets too cold to do so. I need to change the oil on the snowblower and get her ready for another seven months of clearing the long drive.
