There is a definite nip in the air. In fact, by this weekend it is supposed to be downright cold.
My husband and I made a fire in our pit Halloween night to keep warm as the neighborhood kids came by for their treats. The costumes were very colorful and even the adults had costumes on.
We sat around the fire with spiced cider and shivered a lot.
Most residents in the Village are prepared for the cold weather since most of them have already got their winter supply of wood and have most of it chopped up and ready for the wood stoves. The propane companies have been checking propane levels and are busy delivering the propane for the upcoming colder weather.
