First, thanks to Bill and Cap for becoming followers, I appreciate that. I have found your website very helpful in my research.
Yes, more snow! It is rapidly becoming a four-letter word around here! Wednesday into Thursday morning, we received another 8 inches or so of the white stuff, after a wicked early evening of heavy sleet and freezing rain the gave such a nice undercoating to the snow, on top of the ice we still had from the last round. I read in the paper Tuesday that our average winter snowfall is just over 32 inches for the entire season, and we had already reached 35 inches before the new storm. Also, February is just around the corner, and is typically the snowiest month for us. We're really looking forward to that...NOT!
The closing on the business has been delayed, AGAIN, and is really getting frustrating for us. I remain optimistic that the lawyers will come to a consensus in their negotiations. In the meantime, we continue to work towards the goals of finishing the business and packing up our stuff.
A bit of exciting news, though, is we were interviewed for our local paper last week, and the story was on the front page of this week's edition of The East Hampton Star. Thank you, Carissa, for such a nicely written story! I guess the people who haven't heard yet will find out now! :-). I actually had an older gentleman come in today, and when I asked if I could help him, he stated he wasn't a customer, but had read our story in the paper and came in to talk to us. He and his wife had done an extended trip cross-country several years ago, and were contemplating another one. He was very nice, asking a lot of questions, and telling us about his journey. It was very interesting, and I'm sure we are going to keep repeating this scenario wherever we roam. You meet the nicest people in campgrounds :-).
I think that will be all for this time...short and sweet. I'll get back to my African Safari stories next time. Until then, stay safe and hopefully warm!
