Icy winds, happy trims . . .   Wow, this weather is something!  It was 60˚F at sunset yesterday and right now the wind chill is approaching single digits.  Pretty remarkable, the temperature dropping 60˚ in a day and a half.

But winter means being ready.  Ready for construction traffic, ready for wet cold commutes, and ready for brilliant sunshine, zero-percent humidity, and crisp beautiful weather.  Today, spying the forecast, I pulled on my flannel-lined Lands End jeans, two tee shirts, and my favorite thick wool sweater.  With boots, double-sided scarf, long coat, and gloves, my walk from the train to the salon was absolutely glorious.

There was ice on the Schuylkill the other day but it went away when the temperatures gave us a taste of springtime.  Chestnut Street is blocked at 20th;  a giant crane is lifting HVAC equipment atop 1930 Chestnut.  The ‘farmers market’ is in full swing along Walnut at Rittenhouse Square.  Fred has brought in, what else, apples!  Yummmmmmm

I’m so thankful to have a beautiful salon and beautiful kind customers who like to come in to receive the kind of work I like to do.  I’m blessed and lucky to have this opportunity to provide for my family, and I thank every one of you.
