24°F at Noon

By ayr November 19, 2008

If you’ve been with us for a while, you know we had questions when we faced the first rainy days: “would people be willing to wait in the rain?” This past week we were challenged by freezing weather. I mean middle of January weather, coming right at the heels of balmy 65°F days. It was cold, cold, cold. But people still came.

Many simple operational details have become difficult. Water freezes to the floor when you mop, which makes a nice little skating rink. As a solution we’re using super hot water, squeezing the mop out ’til dry, and following the mop immediately with a dry rag. Butane burners will not burn properly at too low a temperature. We’re doing what we can and hoping the oven will help heat things up a little.
