Wow, what an amazing storm we had Sunday night! We, here in Kennewick, got 9 inches of snow and that's on top of an inch of ice. There is one disadvantage of being a mobile espresso business and that's when the roads are bad, you're not making any money.

So here I sit two days later, unable to get my truck out. I have so much ice around my truck, from the freezing rain and melting snow, that I don't think I'm going to get out anytime soon.

Last week I had to battle single digit temperatures. I had pipes and equipment freezing. Luckily I keep my espresso machine on, so it stays safe. Once everything thawed out, it all seems to be in proper working order, so I dodged that bullet. I may have a small crack in a drain pipe, but it doesn't seem to be much of a problem. I might be able to wait until it warms up to fix it.

So needless to say - I CAN'T WAIT FOR SPRING!

I know what you mean - I run Cafe Evoke Catering and we have the same problem here in Bozeman, MT. It is tough to keep everything warm!

Good luck getting out.
