My Snowy Valentine
In case you haven't checked out the national weather in the past few days - here's your intrepid correspondent's front line report from Vermont regarding our Valentine's Day nor'easter. (Finally, a proper snowstorm like we used to have!)
Beau Ties as it appeared from the parking lot on Thursday morning. Decided I'd be going in the back way.
Good thing this drift was a few feet to the right of the back entrance...
...But not so good if you were hoping for a view out of this window! (That's a bit of sky peeking through in the upper right corner).
The drifting wasn't quite as dramatic at the cafeteria door...
Here's a view out the front door over towards the shipping entrance. Looks like there's still some shoveling to be done!
I'm 79 years young and a serious bow tie lover. Back in 1993, my wife and I launched Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont, our own bow tie catalog company, as a retirement business and a way for me to satisfy my bow tie habit. Today Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont sells worldwide through our catalog and web site, www.beautiesltd.com. Last year our annual sales exceeded $2 million!
