When we were out sketching yesterday I was eyeing up these snow guns. They're interesting, and they sure can crank out the white stuff when they need to. Less than 2 weeks until the hill opens - I'm thinking we'll be seeing these hard at work over then few days.
When I wandered into the village and discovered that the store was open, it was like one of those scenes out of a post apocalyptic movie - wandering is silence for half the movie, then opening a door and finding humans. These ones had fresh veggies and dairy products to sell. Yay!
