    I was just wondering if any of you do any seasonal prepping and if so what do you do for fall?

    Personally, I was thinking this would be a great time to start rounding up stuff for winter. I always keep some cold weather stuff in my BOB in the winter. This would be the time to put that stuff back in the bag.

    Firewood. Make sure the chimney cleaner has been and done his thing. Glass in for two storm doors (old style, screen in summer, glass in winter). New air filter and oil change for leaf vacuum. Lime and fertilizer for lawn. Verify scope data on deer rifles. Check fuel supply for generator. Jon boat will be going under cover for winter, but will still be using into early November.

    It wouldn't be that much easier. You have nice summers and miserable winters. We have nice winters (most of the time) and miserable summers. It all evens out.:)

    Most likely trouble in this part of the country in the winter is the all too common ice storm. Three years ago, ice knocked my power out two days beginning on Thanksgiving. Last winter, we lost power for a week beginning Christmas day. A heat source, fresh water and high energy food is the primary concern. Water became a big issue as the municipal water supply ran low too so flushing a toilet was out of the question. I have been resisting buying a generator, but am losing the argument to my wife...guys often lose arguments to their wives so I think I am in good company! :)

    I can't imagine arguing against buying a generator. I love the fact that when the grid is down, we still have refrigeration, lights, freezers working, hot water, forced hot air heat, TV/internet and ceiling fans. The only thing my 5k generator won't run is our A/C. We had it hooked into our whole house wiring after Hurricane Floyd in 1999, one of the best preps we have ever done.
