AMERICAN NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION HEADQUARTERS WEATHERS THE STORM

Curious about the effects of the big winter blizzard this week
that socked Colorado with two feet of snow and all but shut down
major parts of the state (including Denver and Colorado Springs),
I checked in with Gail Baker (ANA's Manager of Market and Brand
Development) on Friday.

She writes: "Today is a beautiful clear, sunny day. The snow is
gorgeous after two days of blizzard conditions. This being Colorado
Springs, the snow never lasts very long and the city does a wonderful
job of getting the roads plowed and passable.  ANA was closed
yesterday but the staff has returned today. Thanks for asking!
Happy Holidays!"

Gail adds: "Downtown Colorado Springs where ANA headquarters is
located had about six inches of snow; outlying areas had more. It
was the wind blowing the snow that made things tough. Sandy Hill
in our membership department was scheduled to fly out of Colorado
Springs on Wednesday – but did not. I actually saw her on television
as they were interviewing passengers. She has been re-scheduled to
fly out tomorrow. Guess where she is today? Even though her vacation
has already started, I found her sitting at her desk this morning
when I arrived at 7 a.m. That’s dedicated!"

[Other staffers including Barb Olsen also came in to the office on
what had been planned vacation days.  Despite the swirl in the press
about the larger ANA policy issues, the staff quietly goes about the
daily business of keeping the wheels of the organization rolling.
Congratulations and happy holidays to all. -Editor]
