I don’t know about everyone else but when I looked out the window this morning I had to do a double take. It wasn’t quite light out and my eyes maybe weren’t quite focussing yet, but I literally had to look twice to process the white ground. I don’t remember seeing anything in the weather forecast about an Alberta Clipper and over an inch of snow on the way. Hopefully once we get past the next couple days we will be back in the clear and on our way to summer.
At least we were able to get a head start on spring in the few nice days that we did have last week. We now have a nice fresh layer of crushed rock covering the roadways and the grader is sitting in the snow waiting to be put to work. I have started to restock our store shelves and our spring shipment of RV supplies arrived on Monday afternoon. Our new rental hot tubs have been unloaded and are ready to be taken for a test drive. Once Mother Nature is done with her games we will be well on our way to being ready for spring and summer camping season. We spent today checking out some new products for our store and also for the RDR Grill. We found some interesting and unique products; oh ya and had lots of yummy samples.
I finally had to stop procrastinating and get my last painting project for the off season finished. If you have been following my blog you will remember that I painted the rec building in early winter but still on my todo list at the time was the main campground washrooms. The thought of painting around 8 toilets and plumbing under 10 sinks just was not very appealing. I don’t really like painting at the best of times and all these nooks and crannies just made it worse. But it was time to suck it up, call in some reinforcements and get it done. The boys bathroom is now blue and the girls bathroom is now pinkish. I don’t know what color to call it since we just took two part pails of leftover paint, mixed them together and ended up with a color in the pinky red tone. Dont’ tell anyone but I will let you in on a secret:I was a little worried about what color I was creating as the first color started looking more hot pink than I had first thought. Luckily the second color toned things down and if anyone asks I had it planned that way all along. (That’s my story and I am sticking to it).
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
