ers-caemLast week it was snowing, this week it’s raining…..I think we’re moving in the right direction though as most of the snow in the Chicagoland area is almost gone. I can actually see grass again. Next week there will be no show, Spring Break for the family and while they are headed down to spend time with grandpa and grandma; I’ll be joining them early next week for a short vacation. If you’re headed somewhere for spring break have safe travels.  The show will return the week after, the first week of April.

I woke up to what appeared to be a winter blizzard and was shocked driving in at how heavy the snow is. I guess the last two days of above freezing temps were enough to warm the ground up, making the snow that fell, wet and slushy. After the show I get to go shovel a bit of it which I hope is the last of this season. Have you ever seen an elevator like the one in this post? The person who sent it to me simply stated, “Only In Iowa”. I can’t imagine the condition of the rest of the elevator when the inside looks like this.

ers-pJust checking out the news this morning there’s a lot to cover. It’s good to be back behind the microphone again. Had a great time in icy Atlanta for the EESF AGM two weeks ago and it was nice to see those that made it in. I know for most of us getting home was the big concern. I’ll recap the meeting provide some highlights of it and cover two weeks’ worth of news which may not be current but it’s still news. As always, thanks for joining me today!
Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!

ers-snwdayHeck of a winter we’re having isn’t it? Between extreme cold weather and snow that comes every week I’m looking forward to attending the EESF Annual General Meeting next week in Atlanta, GA. I sure hope they don’t get any snow. After taking two weeks off I’m happy to be back.  Now let’s get the show on the road.
