Let it Snow!!!
Here is a shot of the home place from the South. We have at least a foot of snow and it has been coming down steadily for the last two or three hours. We had one last delivery to make on the 18th of last week and not knowing what to expect we postponed and it came around to bite us. The farm is located about 11 miles SW of Chehalis and about 10 miles from I5. Boistfort Road has been a certified disaster since Thursday. My wife and I did jet up to Olympia Friday, and made the Tacoma drop on Saturday afternoon. Right now we have one more delivery to get up to Seattle. Scheduled for tomorrow, we are in a holding pattern to try to keep everyone safe. Once on I5 the going is not too bad but between the Farm and there is a real challenge. We deliver in 16 foot box trucks that drive like a sheet of plywood in the wind so we have been very hesitant to commit to the trip North.
On the bright side. The apples that mysteriously clung to the trees for so long have created a natural bird feeder for every overwintering song bird in the area. A neighbor asked me the other day why the apples had stayed on the trees so long. Now I know.
