If you live somewhere warm you likely have spring cleaning events where you shake off winter and prepare for a glorious summer. In Wackapoodle Wisconsin we have a different tradition Fall Panic. This event happens shortly after the first good frost when you have to scrape your windshield for the first time this season. It’s when you realize that all of the mess you made in the garage over the summer is preventing you from parking your cars inside where they will stay warm-ish.

I spent a big part of Sunday working on cleaning up my garage. I’ve done a half ass job the last few years. I’ve piled things up. I’ve avoided throwing things out. I honestly can say that the collected amount of dirt I found was disgusting. I did manage to improve on a work bench. The bucket system I use for holding tools can now stack on a shelf rather then get kicked across the floor. The extra siding for the house is now in the rafters. I have started a pile of junk in the middle of the room and I’m honestly not sure I have enough garbage cans to get it all out at once.

I’ll have to take photos of it once I’m done. I’d take a before picture but it’s honestly embarrassing.
