With being in the construction field this time of year – snow is my nemesis. In our line of work, we typically have just as many outdoor jobs in the winter as indoor. It has gotten to the point when I hear of an impending storm, I start to get upset and in a foul mood. I think of the wasted time we will have to spend digging out the job sites. From uncovering piles of buried wood, access to site trailers and work areas, to removing and replacing tarps to shovel off roofs. It is such a nuisance and waste of time. I guess I would go as far to say that I am a Snow Grinch!
Another problem happens to be my wife. She is the extreme opposite; I would call her Buddy the Elf of snow. With the report of an impending storm, she starts singing and dancing around the house. It is so annoying. Doesn’t she know how much it upsets me? She does not care. Even her Facebook friends give her a hard time and ask her to please stop doing her snow dance. It has been the root cause of many a fight in our household.
But something happened yesterday. Maybe it is because that I really do not have a lot of outdoor work coming up for a few months, or I am getting a bit more tolerant with age… but I got kind of excited about the prospect of getting snowed in today with our first major storm (we got over a foot of snow). It was the kind of excitement that I would relate to from my childhood when we had a snow day off from school.
I still need to go outside and deal with all the shoveling and plowing, but the thought of drinking a cup of hot chocolate in front of the fireplace after is making me happy. Heck, I might even make a snow angel later!

Hidden Treasure: Renovation Project
You never know what you will discover hidden under a ceiling, floor, or in a wall during construction. Like this home, imagine how delighted the owners were to find beautiful beams hidden in the ceiling, which we incorporated into the new ceiling!
Tip of the Month: February
Polish your lamps and mirrors. With the days getting longer and extended sunlight, bring more light into your home. Wipe down the surfaces of all of your lamps and mirrors, so that the sun may shine brighter in your home and enhance the light. If you don't have many lamps or mirrors, think about adding some more to brighten your living space.
