And so she is threatening another snowstorm this coming week ... which makes re-opening Quilters' Quarters on the first day of spring impractical. There is no heat in the barn. It is presently 40 degrees outside and 30 degrees within. I can't cut fabric with frozen fingers. Customers are not comfortable shopping for fabric and notions while wearing winter coats ... they cannot feel the 'soft hand of quality fabric' while wearing mittens or gloves. Spring is dilly-dallying somewhere else on the planet, and is sorely being missed here.
The revised plan for the re-opening is now set for Thursday, April 5th. My apologies to all ... I clearly have no pursuasive power with Mother Nature, nor with the weather pattern we are enduring here. Three classic nor'easters in the past two weeks? Over two feet of unmelted spring snow? More ahead? Really? Can we all say "Global Warming's Extreme Effects? Or shall we all just blame the foolish meteorologists' tinkering with the calendar date for First Day of Spring (read that: Vernal Equinox.) Apparently, she's offended.
See you in April?
