A storm is due and the community water is to be shut down next weekend. It was time to say goodbye to our cabin until spring. Summer seems so short, we have running water for less than five months though we often extend the season a bit and "camp out" in it once the road is plowed the end of April.
The fresh water and water heater are drained, non-toxic anti-freeze in the drains. I defrost the refrigerator and remove any cans from the pantry that might burst when they freeze. There is water stored and firewood for early opening. The deck railing has been removed so the snow can not slide off the roof and remove it in a more destructive fashion.
We roll down the shutters and say good-bye, until next year.
