I haven't been posting much this week, and this is why.
Rather unusually for a February, we're slammed with tankard orders. We shipped off a 100 piece order last week, we have to get this current production run of 100 shipped by this upcoming Monday, and then we immediately plunge into yet another production run to finish some outstanding orders. Yikes, where's our quiet snow-filled winter?
To make things more challenging, the "polar vortex" that's been hitting the rest of the country has finally swung our way. Nighttime temps are plunging well below zero, and today's high was a modest 10F.
Poor Don has been working in the shop in this bitterly cold weather. He packs his gloves and boots with warmers and stands in front of the diesel heater and stays moderately unfrozen. But we'll be glad when this cold snap ends too.
I'll be back when we're a bit less busy! Thanks for your patience!
