It is now late November in MN, but it feels like spring with 56F highs, so grilling is still very convenient.

In a few weeks, I will have to follow the 4 steps in the snow on my deck to fire up the gas grill (gas required on wood decks). If I am serious, I will walk the 5 steps to my Weber charcoal grill or Brinkman smoker on my lower level patio, so spring and supper eating is still readily available. I usually do put on shoes, but frequently just have socks on for the few steps in the snow. Winter is really a state of mind as long as you know what could happen. - Fortunately, we do not have the common power outages like the east coast of the U.S. and I have not reset a clock in 12 years (except for daylight conversions).

As long as you do not have to worry about winter, it makes it easy to plan for spring activities.

I get the urge to go metal detecting in the parks looking for dropped coins and jewelry. After spending all winter inside its nice to get out and enjoy nature. I also like washing and waxing our 2007 Ford Edge of all the winter chemical and dirt.

This year is a lot easier with maple trees and no snow. So far up to 4 gallons of maple syrup made. The season started for us on Feb 2nd this year, the trees were flowin big time.....and the trees are still flowing now, in fact I'm going to empty the buckets now.

Trade you a box of GooGoo Clusters for a bottle of syrup.
