On behalf of Snowline, I wanted to reach out and say hello. We are all staying home these days, but I am glad to have a chance to let you know that we are thinking of you and that your Snowline care team is here for you when you have a need.
I have been loving watching all of the storms we have had lately. As I looked out my window the weather went from bright sunshine to clouds darkening the sky, to a WILD burst of wind and hail and almost snow. It was very dramatic, and I loved it. It smells so fresh now that the rain has come, and the daffodils and iris seem to have weathered the storm just fine.
Our cat is very confused to have all of us home working. She keeps walking through the house with the feline equivalent of a frown on her face. But then she curls up in my lap as I work, and all is right in both of our worlds.
Remember: you are part of the Snowline family and we are here for you.
