Frost Bite Crank Up
14 December 2008
The boys and I left the house at 6:30 AM today and motored on up to Boyleston MA for the Frost Bite Crank Up. I had several calls from Norm Jones the night before concerning whether or no the event would take place as most all of Massachusetts was without power from the terrible ice storm of Thursday and Friday. But nothing ventured, nothing gained so off we went. It was not until I got off of I291 that I began to see evidence of the storm. Fortunately the roads were clear and ice free.
We met at the fire house a mile or so up Route 70 from where the Crank Up was to take place and enjoyed a pancake breakfast that the fire troops were putting on.
Santa was in attendance and the pancakes were good.
Attendance seemed to be down from last year probably due to the fact that so many folks were without power.
