INNformer #131 Sept 6
Has summer struck with a vengeance?!? After the morning fog burns off, the sun has been shining until sunset most of the time from Aug 11 thru Sept 6th. Although the temperature ranges from high 70′s to mid 80′s, it can get pretty toasty if you’re out in the sun for too long. Now our guests from AZ & TX all the way over to NY are expressing no sympathy I’m sure! But please remember that we’ve been in an overcast state for 10 months and our bodies are now in a state of shock. Sunshine is forecast for the next 7 days!
Pumpkin Update: Yes, we’ve named our pumpkin! We had 26 names sent to us from our INNformer and Facebook readers. Now these were quite clever and some were rather funny. It was difficult, but we’ve chosen our favorite name and these are the 4 runner ups:
ROUND 2 … Win another FREE night stay at the Anchorage Inn B&B. Every year we ask for you to guess the final weight of our pumpkin. Although summer has gotten off to a very late start, hasn’t been very hot, the crows are attacking and the vine is splitting, it is still growing every day. We weigh in on Oct 8th. The closest guess of weight without going over, will win an overnight stay in your choice of any room (excluding the Crow’s Nest Suite and Discovery) at the Anchorage Inn, depending upon availability. Reservations should be made for a visit anytime between Oct 1st, 2011 and May 30th 2012. Round 2 will close on Oct 7th.
