Winter at the T Barny Studio
When it goes below 35 in the mornings, T Barny has to wait for an hour or so before he goes into the studio. He says the air tools will freeze up. When I asked why? He told me that the air condenses inside the tool and the moisture then freezes. This means shorter carving days during the winter months.
Speaking of moisture, we have had one of the wettest winters on record. In fact the February 25-27 2019 storm caused the Russian River to flood. Our own Sausal Creek usually floods prior to the river. However, with the latest storm we dodged a bullet. The creek has deepened and widened upstream from us so the T Barny corp yard was spared. Still, our little stream did become a raging river. We have our fingers crossed that the worst of the rainy season is over.
