He wrote a letter to a friend and meant to start the letter with ‘Bon Hiver’, he forgot to include the ‘H’. The friend later recommended that Justin use ‘Bon Iver’ as the name of his project.)
I was pretty excited to wake up to a long overdue winter wonderland, but my dog Louie seemed a bit befuddled.
However, my excitement didn’t last long as I realized this just delayed the start of the golf season. Last year we were able to get on the course as early as May, and this year we’re hoping for an April start! Although the snow has only been here a few hours, the saying by one of my favorite authors, Albert Camus, still holds true– “In the depth of winter I finally learned that there within me lay an invincible summer”.

Water is a destructive force when leaking into a home. The following is an example of what can happen when a tub overflows for an extended period of time. The same reaction can also be caused by common winter challenges of broken water pipes, radiator systems or hot water heaters.
If you plan on going out of town, be sure to make adequate preparations by having someone check in on the home often to make sure all systems are functioning properly.
