We hope everyone enjoyed the October weather despite some occasional smoky days. Those of you living downstream and/or south of town have had it much worse with the smoke, pre-evacuations and evacuations. All of us here at “The Jug” are happy to know that all the evacuees are able to return home. It was so dry that any precipitation was welcome. I don’t believe I have ever been so excited to see this much precipitation in the form of snow in October but it has been much needed to suppress the Decker Fire. Hopefully this will put that beast to bed!
Another bonus of all this snow is Monarch is opening for weekends only (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) beginning November 1st!! I don’t think I have seen that in my 42 years here in Salida! Way to go Monarch! What a great gift to the community, pass holders and employees- Awesome!!
I guess the less exciting part of the season is that as each day passes and the sun creeps lower and lower in the sky. November has arrived and soon we will be wrapping up 2019! November also marks the start of the Holiday season. The remainder of 2019 should be a time to eat, drink and be merry. And then drink and eat some more! We all have 2020 to clean up our acts! What better place in the upper Arkansas Valley to find screaming deals on all of your favorite libations than “the Jug?” Read on, I am sure you will find we have something for your holiday entertainment. As always we would like to thank you for your continued patronage and look forward to seeing each and every one of you this month at “the Jug.”
