The fall colors are getting pretty on October 10th
which is a little late this year.
This is at 1:00 pm and the sun is out.
Four hours later at 5:00 pm and our first snow of
the season is really
blowing around out there. About an inch and a half
by 6:30 pm.
The wind is blowing the snow sideways but I have
more work to do before
I head out for the season so enough of this white
The morning after the first snow. The sky is
clear and we ended up with
1 and a 1/2 inches total.
Clear blue skies and the snow is melting after I
shoveled the porch and steps.

Another colorful October sunrise.
The wrap around porches are sanded and ready to be
The west side of the cabin and the railings are
stained. This finishes the cabin
and now all I have left to stain are the decks.
We had our second snow on the evening of October
15th. It was
9 to 10 inches deep when I awoke on the 16th.

just after the snow plow
came down our road at 10:00 A.M.

trees in the front yard to grow
but the deer keep eating the top out of them even
though we had a small
wire ring around them, so I built two of these cages
to keep the deer
away from the trees. Try and get in there deer!
The deck on the west side of the cabin is stained
and about a third of the
east side deck is done. I need to finish it and then
do the front deck.
After that I'll be packing up to leave for warmer
climates. Our third
snow of 2-4 inches is predicted for tonight, but the
3-5 inches brought 10 inches so we'll see what this
Our third snow only amounted to about one and a half
so I was able to get the remaining decks stained.
Feeding birds at a neighbor's cabin. They like the
raw shelled peanuts.
Cabin locked up for the season with the front steps
raised up and
hopefully away from most of the winter snow.
Heading out of the park and down the county road
towards the highway.
