My favorite protege made her way "Home For The Holidays" this week. We share the love of the same tractor, and she's as gentle with the cat as I am. Long time readers will remember that I wrote about Julie here.
I always knew Julie would go on to greener pastures, but enjoying her service while it lasted was great. She reveled out loud after her first shift back at the sticks, and she'll be around for another week...good on her! I'm so grateful! For this time of year, My Mountain has been double blessed with ample squeaky snow, and eager customers bent on enjoying the first good Christmas Holiday period in at least six years! We've really had a good run, and I believe that we'll win our New Snowcat Sweepstakes!
There's nothing...I mean Not One Thing out in the Pacific to bring more snow to my mountain for the forecast-able future. Another week of nice clear weather will be a good chance for our guests to play hooky from work and come up to enjoy a Bluebird Day on the slopes.
Here at the DaveCave, I've got a real weekend...two contiguous days off, which I'm spending cleaning my garage, so I can actually park my pickup in there. Downstairs in the DaveCave proper, I'm weeding through a whole summer's worth of mail, and filing. I want to get the DaveCave cleaned up enough that a Roomba Vacuum Robot can take over my most onerous housekeeping chore...man I hate to vacuum! I think I can program the Roomba to vacuum while I'm at work! This means I won't have to wear earplugs to manually do the vacuuming anymore! All I need to do is deal with the myriad piles of stuff that burgeons everywhere whenever I'm on the road all summer!
