Rain and Fog Didn’t Stop the Running Springs Farmer’s Market and Contractors Expo

fruit and vegetable basketThe famous Scottish poet, Robert “Robbie” Burns, had it right and today the saying “the best laid plans of mice and men” came directly from this long-ago poet who, in Scottish, posted the line “the best laid schemes o’mice and’men/oft a-gley.” That saying is so appropriate for yesterday’s Running Springs Farmer’s Market and annual  Contractor’s Expo.

The thick fog and damp sprinkles kept a lot of people away but overall, for the weather conditions, the show, like a good Broadway production, “went on.”

Many of the Farmer’s Market vendors showed up and although they may have been bundled up a tad, they were here. It was another successful event even though there were very few (like one) vendor for the contractors’ event.

Thanks to all the market vendors and   Alex’s presticide-free fruits and vegetables  for showing up and driving up Hwy. 330….really heavy fog, light rain et all from Redlands.

You know, mountain living is always interesting. As soon as people think they have the weather figured out, good old Mother Nature throws us a late snowfall or rain or both (or, in yesterday’s case, all of the above!)

Thank you to all of you residents and visitos who bundled up in coats or jackets and came on over to the site. While it was cold it was also fun! The vendors and the market and the sponsors, the Running Springs Area Chamber of Commerce thank you!

A big “shout-out”  to Kustom Garage Doorz for attending the contractor’s expo. This Lake Arrowhead-based business is family owned and operated and we appreciated their dedication and interest in attending what proved to be the soggy-wet, very-cold expo. By the way, the business is owned by Lee Hitt and he is licensed/bonded and insured. To reach this local mountain business call (909) 273-3928 or (909) 273-3975.
