    Yikes! Woke up this morning to the world blanketed in white. Not only are we having snow today until after noon, the temps tonight are going down to 9F (-13C). In case we haven't contacted you individually, we will postpone all shipping scheduled for this week, and plan to ship all orders next week (Nov. 18), when temps are supposed to moderate.

    Good luck! Weather is particularly awful here today, had the pleasure of driving 100 miles in it (only took 200 miles worth of time...).

    Sounds bad; the 100 mile drive wasn't any bargain. Time to move South, like to Myrtle Beach. Bet our heating bills would be a lot lower there and you could take up golf if you don't already play.....!
    Guess we'd better move South by Ray!

    36F now here and it is having a good snow shower for the first time of the season...some white stuff on the lawn.
    Totally didn't expect that! Maybe we are going to have a snowy winter here also.

    We don't have walk-in trade because we're located in a residential area in Naperville, but we do allow local and out of town slipper orchid growers to pick up their online pre-orders at the
    greenhouse, thereby eliminating shipping charges. We also usually have a sales table during the Hausermann Open House during the last weekend in February and the first weekend in March, and at Hausermann's during the Chicagoland Orchid Festival, which happens around the 3rd weekend in September.

    I was in Kissimee, Florida last weekend. I wish I could have stayed for the Forum next weekend. :(

    Drove home from LaPorte, IN yesterday with 8" on the ground there, only to find 10+" here at home 60M north of Detroit. I think it's going to be a long winter.
