All prepared for winter

Recommended Posts


Got sorted today.

Pond heater all connected up outside for keeping pure from freezing.

3 water butts wrapped in bubble wrap for xtra protection.

In garage backpacks & hoses wrapped in to quilts. Quite lucky as my garage is fairly new so very well insulated.

Surgical gloves in car

Fingerless gloves in car

Bobble hat (with earphones) in car


Thermal socks

Ladder staying in garage for night. Used to leave it on van but it was so cold & iced up in the morning.

Tin of de-icer

That's me ready. Was unprepared today & was bloody cold.

My fingers and feet felt it the most today. Luckily managed to get back home for lunch so I changed out socks fora set of warm ones. In between jobs I would put my gloves on too to cook up the old digits a bit. I hate detailing with them though so I might pick up a set of fingerless ones.
