February 16th, 2021 Newsletter
Well, that was unexpected. On Saturday nearly 2.5 feet of snow dumped on the house, which caused trees to topple, limbs to snap, and the power to shut off. Not only did we find ourselves with out power for a little bit, but we also had to strap on the snowshoes to get out of the house and walk down our driveway. Things were a mess for the past few days, but it looks like we have finally melted out and the power is back on! Of course, this means that the weekly newsletter didn't get out on time.... but it is hear now. As we shake off the last bit of snow and clean up the downed trees, we are seeing that a LOT of others in the states are seeing big snow storms, massive power outages, and more! Stay safe everyone, I am thinking of you.
ps. The Header photo for this email is one of our cats climbing out of the snowbank. he was fine, and loves it. He is an adventurous kitty!
