Rain on the Mountain

Well Mother Nature tried real hard yesterday to wash the mountain away. It was a scary couple of hours as logs and stumps floated down the main road by the garage. We spent a couple of cold and wet hours clearing debris and unplugging drain pipes in the raging waters. The runoff rose to within a foot of the garage but luckily we had built it with drainage in mind. After I surveyed the damage this morning, I felt we were lucky. We lost about a foot of road at the garage entrance and I’ll be fixing the damage in the yard from the erosion for a long time. But, the buildings look okay and the sun is out now. The flowers of spring are popping proving that the mountain survived.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
