    I have a collection of the 1950's metal fan chairs and glider, mid October, the chairs are moved to storage shed (hung from rafters) and the glider is covered with an old shower curtain after the cushions have been removed. Also have a large tarp that covers the entire deck to keep the snow off. The rafters hold dried out sunflowers to feed the birds and to entertain us throughout the horrible cold.
