I was verrrrry skeptical of the weather reports on Tuesday that said that after an almost 70 degree day, we would be getting snow (and not just a dusting). Those weathermen just never seem to be right, so I usually do not pay any mind to their "severe weather advisories". I woke up at 4AM to the sound of rain. I was like, "OK! Guess they were wrong. Back to bed and then to the gym in an hour and a half!". At 5:30AM, it was a full on blizzard and the gym was closed. I think I have told you that I live in Doylestown, and I guess the further outside Philadelphia you got, the more snow you got. We got about 6 inches in 5 hours! We have a super long driveway and let me tell you, that snow was HEAVY. I didn't even have to go to the gym to get a workout! I am really glad that I shoveled when I did because after the snow, the sun came out and did some work with the salt I spread. If I had waited to shovel, the driveway would have been like a sheet of ice!
Down here at Karamoor, we only got about 3 inches. Maybe even less! Crazy what 20 miles difference will do. All this up and down with the weather is not so great for the vines. Hopefully Mother Nature figures out soon if it is going to be winter or if it going to be spring!
We had a great tour last Friday (2/3). The group was a lot of fun. I think that the best thing about the tours that we give is the fact that they are super personal. People really seem to like that aspect of things. That and of course the drinking of wine! Our tour for Valentine's Day is completely sold out, but we still have some spots available for 2/24! I hope that you come to visit us soon.
Lots of wedding prep happening this week! Finalized the menu for the rehearsal dinner and for the reception. People are getting their invitations which makes everything seem very real. My dad and I picked the song that we are going to dance to and I just made us a dance lesson appointment (I am a BAD dancer). I have been chatting with my cousin (MOH) about the bachelorette party and I am getting SO EXCITED for it. I can't believe that we are only 2.5 months away from the big day. Seems crazy!
Next week I will include some new winery photos. We have been changing things around quite a bit and this week we have been doing construction to the main portion of the winery where our new tanks will find their permanent home (because for the last few months these shiny new tanks have just been sitting in the middle of the winery taking up lots of room)! So, stay tuned for that! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. Until next time..
