Our colleagues at Yankee have suffered a bout of freezing rain today, and it’s made travel difficult and has created power problems; this is something one must suffer from time to time with a company located in weather-rich southern New Hampshire.
So, for today, everyone at Yankee is staying home. The main company telephone number has a message to this effect, delivered in true Yankee style; it starts:
Thank you for calling Yankee Publishing, home of Yankee Magazine and The Old Farmer’s Almanac. The weather has gotten to us and our offices will be closed today…
Is it any wonder I have great affection for this company.
