But when it finally gets sunny, it's delightful. My mountaintop retreat in Texas Valley in the Olympic Mountains could use a little sprucing up in the deck area. We have the whole mountain range to gaze upon, from Mount Angeles to Mount Zion, A -Z, but the furnishings are sparse and the amenities are few. Soaking in a hot tub while taking in the snow capped Olympics would be sheer heaven on earth. There has been snow on the ranch in every month since September. Next month we should be snow-free and it would be such a delight to have a beautiful patio on which to enjoy a few rays of sun.
