Well, sort of...
Despite the fact there is still oodles and gobs of snow on the ground and it's not going anywhere soon, we are planning on opening the shop tomorrow at 7 am.
We will be ready with plenty of fresh roasted organic and fair trade coffees along with amazing French pastries and bagels.
I thought the crazy weather of the past few weeks was exhausted, only to be followed by 12 inches of snow last night.
Here's the view out the rear doors of our shop.
As many of you already know, the shop is closed today but we plan on being back tomorrow morning, rarin' to go with plenty of fresh roasted organic and fair trade coffees (our roaster made it in today in spite of the elements).
