The Personal Corner

The stalagtites are ice; most of the stalagmites are Douglas firs trees!

Here's the view we "enjoyed" a couple of weeks ago. Yes, we know our customers in other parts of the country and the world have seen more severe, but for us here in the northwest, it was pretty bad. We lost power and there were a couple of days we couldn't even make it into the offices! We apologize if our inconveniences caused any for you.


Feedback: One of our customers pointed out that our article last month was mistaken: We stated that Russia is the largest country in the world. Our customer's point was that Siberia is not a part of Russia and, without it, Russia would not be the largest country. Politics aside, we did a little research and found this cool website regarding Siberia. Just thought you'd enjoy. Besides, we love your feedback. [By the way, as Siberia is not (yet) an autonomous nation, we do not carry its flag.]
