Snow!

I know that aPetrJ-snow-flake2 lot of the country is more than tired of the white stuff but I have to say that I found it invigorating getting caught out in it today. Usually, I pay attention to the weather and try to stay in when the flakes are out. Oh, no, I didn’t mean snowflakes. No,┬áSir! I mean the flakes driving the vehicles through this beautiful wonderland. It was crazy out there! Needless to say, it feels good to be home now.

Please stay safe, everyone!

That last is how we got our name, The Rusty Shingle. Jim had been hired to tear down an old homestead and he came home with these lovely, rusty, dusty tin shingles. “What can we do with these?” he asked. We can build a business with them. And thus, The Rusty Shingle was born.
