In January 2020, Forks had record breaking rainfall. We accumulated approximately 1/3 of our annual amount. We had a little over 30 inches of rain in January, which is roughly 3 times the normal! Even those of us that have lived here for years were feeling a little water logged! The first few days of February have been a little wet, too. Fortunately we are starting to see some signs of spring in the garden. That is giving us hope.
Meanwhile at the Miller Tree Inn, we are using this quiet (and wet) time of year to make a few improvements to the interior of the inn. We have new flooring going in our two downstairs common areas, as well as having some new carpet tiles installed in the breezeway. Last month we put new room darkening blinds in two of our rooms and started painting the kitchen.
We are also trying some new things on our website. We are developing some seasonal packages. For the month of February you can add the “Simply Sweet” package to your room reservation. This package includes 6 hand crafted chocolate covered strawberries and a single rose in a bud vase, to pamper your favorite person. Next month we will come up with something else, so stay turned!
