My favorite weather guy, Cliff Mass, has an entry on his blog about the big storms (there are 3 of them) that will hit my area in the next 5 days.
So the chore schedule for tomorrow changed a little. Everything that isn't secured gets tied down, nailed, latched and weighted. Animals get extra bedding, sows with piglets get moved to the most sheltered positions, and all of the equipment gets moved from flood-prone areas up to high ground.
It's pretty much the standard seasonal chore; I hate feeling like my tail is on fire, so I'll do this sort of thing before the bad weather gets here. I've already checked the standby generator, and most of the equipment is already put away, but I'll take an extra look around tommorow and make sure that I didn't miss anything.
And I might as well take the dumptruck over and get a couple of loads of gravel. The driveway could use an extra layer for this year, and everything I can do to control mud is a good thing.
