Five events this week: The ‘it’s still snowing’ edition


Maybe we should just hibernate for the next few weeks if the snow is going to continue to get all up in our business for the indefinite future.

Alas. The snowpack is looking good, and that’s a bright spot with the ongoing storm activity. Cue up the weeds as things warm up, though. Here are five events to check out this week, plus a few from our generous sponsors. Have a great week.
