Daylight is getting longer, the birds are getting louder, things are starting to gain momentum. A few more cold snaps, a storm or two and then it will happen. That first solid 45 degree day in full sunshine will beam down and call those that are prepared out.
What does prepared mean? Ready to bolt out of the house after being snowed in for a few months of hibernation? Or ready to take the winter project out for its first firing? Chance favors the prepared mind.
