As the leaves start changing here in the Northeast, we often are lucky enough to hear the sounds of the geese heading south to warmer places. It's a wonderful noise and if you've never heard or seen a flock heading south, you're missing out. It's the true, and most poignant, mark of summer's end.

On top of all the maudlin prose it makes us eject, the noise of the geese is also our annual reminder that it's time for another, possibly more important migration. This one isn't made by any breed of animal, but rather our crates of glues, caulks, and epoxies. Theirs is a treacherous journey from the oftentimes not heated garage workshop to the basement paint shelves where they will remain unfrozen for another winter.

So don't forget to tend to your glues and other freezable liquids as things get colder. We have first hand knowledge that it's no fun to find a frozen bottle of Titebond II in the middle of January.
