. . . . for any kind of weather and today we had cold, wind, rain, hail, (maybe) snow! We seldom have a white Christmas here in the valley, but the mountains around us (to the east and the northeast) often do. The Art Stand building is tin-roofed and not well-insulated and a thunderstorm sounds monumental from inside the building. We will only be open 1 more day before we close for our winter break. There were quite a few visitors today and others will be surprised to see us closed for the coldest, wettest weeks of winter except for our upcoming classes. See below for information that will allow you to sign up before they are full.
