I have been away from the property for a bit taking a vacation in Sandwich and spending time with family over the holidays. It is not far from MV but it seems like a world away. We received a bunch of rain but at the end 3-5" of snow. That snow is melting with the current weather but still around and looking like winter. Rhode Island received 10" or so and VT over a foot. The Vineyard was all rain with maybe a dusting that melted. So the grass is green and with temps in the 40's and 60 predicted for Sunday it is hard to remember it is winter unless you leave the island and get reminded by the snow right in Woods Hole. In my first days back I was able to conduct interviews and hire Chris Welch as our new Foreman. Originally from Cape Cod he has been on island for over 20 years and has been in the heavy equipment industry his entire life. For the last two decades he has been the Bobcat salesman for this area, which is how we met. We are all excited to welcome Chris to the team and start a new year with much enthusiasm.
