Winter Weather

December 15, 2008 Leave a comment

The snow storm that had been predicited did hit us beginning mid-morning yesterday.  We went up the winery anyway.  I was saying the whole way, “I don’t know why we are doing this.  We won’t be getting any customers.”  I was wrong.  We had 3 customers, all buyers.  We had our first “non-friend” “return/repeat” customer.  That doesn’t sound right, but you know what I mean; lots of friends have been repeat customers.  They bought wine for Christmas, and  I sold a custom basket to a friend.  Then we had visitors from Colorado, including Mark who works for Keen shoe company.  He comes to Oregon often, but his girlfriend  had never been.    Before their visit was over, he ordered 3 pairs of shoes for me to be comfortable while working in the tasting room.  I can’t wait to get them, because shoes and feet have been a problem lately.  I even wore my penguin slippers yesterday up there, which may be what led Mark to order me shoes; who knows.  Here’s a link to his company’s web site  I’ve also added it to my permanent links; the least I can do.  When RJ gets home (if he gets home; our road is a sheet of ice), I’ll have pictures of the show and our frozen fountain.
