The weather people were having an awfully good time predicting TWENTY-inches-near-the-mountains-batten-down-the-hatches-and-feed-your-dogs-prime-rib-for-dinner on Sunday night.

We got about 6″. Maybe.

But the Warehome roof slid, as ever, and it was a good reason to check out one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me, near Babb: The Snowblower. Oh, if only we’d had one back in 2010-2011.

And now that we’ve finally acquired the dang thing, we’ll never see another winter like 2010-2011, when the roads were closed more often than they were not, and my pregnant self tapped my foot in impatience, and at times, fear, of the stifling cabin/Warehome fever that ensued.

And that’s just fine by me. Thanks for clearing the World Headquarters lot, Brother Dear!

Also — random announcement aimed at folk in or near the Flathead Valley – we’ll have the best-honey-you’ve-never-tasted, gorgeous beeswax and wool (new!) ornaments, and beeswax candles (some new!) at the Conrad Mansion over the weekend. Save yourself the shipping and attend their Christmas event! Call 755-2166 for details.
