Let It Snow!

What a beautiful 4" of snow we received on Sunday, December 16th. Monday was a foggy, gray day but the temperatures have stayed in the low 30s so Tuesday was a nice day for getting pictures. Enjoy!

The Paving is Done

The paving has been completed all the way to the entrance to Ski Beech, as well as the striping.

I can't remember when the last time was that we had a completely new road without pot holes, patches or faded lines. It really looks nice.

You can see by the road bed just how thick they laid it on.
