For those of you wondering I am sick and will not be in the office until Thursday. The cold weather got me. I hope you guys are doing well now that winter (that’s winner if you are from Utah*) has arrived in Cache Valley. Despite the cold we are still having events at the Whittier every night. Last night I had to come in for an emergency and there was a huge crowd for the Salsa Dancing (done every Tuesday by Free Style Dance) and a large belly dance troupe upstairs (classes run by Shimmering Sands Middle Eastern Dance). So despite the flu and the cold the Whittier is still rocking.
I noted in an earlier blog post that I’d like to change the Banner seasonally. Right now it is showing Logan Canyon with a splash of fall colors. Should it stay or should it change to the snow background?
* Ever notice how the northern Utah dialect drops the T from words. Winner instead of WinTer, Mounain instead of MounTain, Manawey instead of Man too ua (Mantua**). Check it out on your friends!
** yes yes I know that the town is named after the birthplace of Eliza and Lorenzo Snow in Ohio and not the town in Italy. I also know that Mantua (UT/OH) is named after a Shawnee chief and is pronounced different but the historian in me shudders every time it is pronounced the Shawnee and not the Italian way.
