    I live in Lebanon County. Lebanon County is next to Lancaster County, and, Yes, it does get cold enough for lots of snow.

    I love the language thing! How cool that they pick up you were there and are polite enough to take into consideration the possible language barrier :)

    I have no idea about the weather there…does it get cold enough for lots of snow?!

    Thanks libby! I’m guessing you must be not too far from Holmes or Geauga Counties, unless it’s one of the smaller settlements. Hope you enjoy reading!

    It’s been very mild and nice in Lancaster County the last few days, I do hope it holds up as I spend about 14 hours a day outdoors these days!

    With the fantastic canvas work on You’re Custom made Buggys . I wondered if anyone would Copy,I will supply the old parts.*See below* Bridge roof, it is approximatly 10’+ – by 10’+ – using [Sunbrella]? We have new replacement Vinyl windows purchased about 11+ – years ago.
    *The Parts* consist of a Sunbrella Roof or top, on pipes already installed , which the vinyl windows hang from.The other part is a Sunbrella bridge mooring cover, at the dock,size about 13’+ – by 18’+ -.The other part is a boot,or cover when vinyl is removed, and top and pipes are folded to be covered.

    Thank You very much for You’re Help in anyway with this job.

    I was visiting Lancaster County the other day and noticed this, too. Languages are funny like that.

    I was in a fabric shop, and found it a little amusing to overhear a conversation between an “Englisch” shopkeeper and an Amish customer, in which the Amish lady spoke perfect (American) English the whole time and the “Englisch” lady switched between English and PA Dutch.

    Another time, I did speak German/PA Dutch with an Amish lady, but I think it was mostly because she thought German was my first language…

    We were staying with a Mennonite family, and Mrs Zimmerman said that, although her husband actually spoke PA Dutch, when he tried to use it with Amish people, they always switched back to English because they could tell that was his preferred language.
