Finally, business as usual (?)
The last few weeks (months) have been a challenge. A couple weeks ago, Estes Park was ordered to evacuate with the East Troublesome fire moving toward us from the Western slope. At its peak, the fire ran 17 miles in 90 minutes and jumped 1.5 miles of tundra at 12,000 feet- even made the old timers nervous. Through the hard work of firefighters and quite likely Gods hand, the fire stopped just 1/2 mile from the West edge of town for several hours until 15" of snow blanketed the region. The snow crippled the fire's strength, and residents trickled back to town, with a few visitors as well. Business seems slower now than even the COVID shutdown, but we are open and enthusiastic to carry on with the tradition of making Estes Park Salt Water Taffy for your family. We are continuing to follow health department guidelines related to COVID, so only 4 customers in the store at a time, but mail and phone orders are delivering normally. Whether you visit the store or order 'remotely', we look forward to hearing from you!

Firefighter Joke
It seems fitting to tell a fire joke, in the midst of hundreds of firefighters in our community, working hard. Firefighters are a proud bunch, whether career or volunteer, structure or wildland- and their sense of humor is quite tolerant. Beware if you use this joke on a firefighter, they may have a very witty response for you, and it's all in good fun. If you don't laugh at it, save it for when you see a firefighter and watch their response, it's pretty funny (and true!). Shared by our owner- 30 years of being a volunteer firefighter in Estes Park, and this is the one he tells most often:
 
Q: How do you know if there's a firefighter at your party?

A: He'll tell you!

 
Here's Mark, on the scene of a car crash recently. If it's not life and death situation and in between serious skill performance, a sense of humor is a survival skill in the fire service. There's a funny story about this picture for another day, but we'll just say that's not his helmet...
