More Winter Prep

We've been busy putting double pallets under the dogs' houses for better warmth this winter.  All of the usual fall prep is occurring as well. Shade/rain tarps are still up but had the first accumulation of snow holding them
low.   Holes are being filled with sand, but it's still warm enough for great digging, say the dogs.

The hoses are frozen in the morning so we're back to hauling pails full.   We're a bit short of help so the work is coming before the running, but it won't be long.

The forecast says we might get snow showers this morning.   The leaves were beautiful on Thursday  having been gorgeous for two weeks.  Yesterday, with a hefty wind, the beauty blew away and stark trees stand in many places, shed of all that color.   One of our trees fell over in the wind, right next to the dogs' pens.  We had used it for years as a hookup tree, but last year had planted a large, sturdy pole in the ground, realizing the dying tree might fall on us one day or take off with a strong team.

Will we get snow?  Someone was chasing snow yesterday with a trailer of snow machines headed North.
