Today the weather prognosticators said to expect hard frosts this weekend,
so DH and I did a bit out outdoor winterizing around our home...
I de-flowered my deck flower pots and put them in storage for the winter:
DH went around the house and disconnected all the hoses:
DH replaced the front screen door with the glass storm door:
We emptied the birdbath in the front garden
and stored it in the garage:
DH and I also emptied the water fountain on the deck
and carried it to the basement for the winter:
Hope we didn't forget anything!!! We don't have any leaves to rake yet, so I'm hoping we are prepared for the onslaught of cold weather and Iowa winters!!! Brrrrrrr.
