     Winter storm Jonas reached Huntingtown Maryland at 1:00 pm today, Friday January 22, 2016. Because we are experiencing increasing winds, cold temperatures, and a significant snow fall we have cancelled our Annual Open House on Saturday January 23. We plan to be open on Sunday January 24 after we dig out. Call us if you plan to make the trip on Sunday to be sure all is clear (410-610-6697).

     Because of the storm, we have extended our Open House to include next Saturday and Sunday (January 30 and 31, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm). We hope that everyone stays safe and warm the next few days and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday the 24th if you can safely travel or definitely next Saturday the 30th or Sunday the 31st.

     Regards,
     Bill, Lynn, Zane, Spice, and Leo
