when I mentioned to the guy that I couldn't believe we were buying our tree during a blizzard, he said, "you're not the only one, there were twenty people ahead of you". getting the tree back to our house was easy. all the smart people stayed home so the roads were empty and the snow had just started to kick in. trying to get the tree to stand upright was a different story. we wound up having to cut off about twenty dollars worth of its branches just to wedge it into its tree stand. after that experience I can see why people get fake trees.
on a side note, last week the food reporter erica marcus, from newsday's "feed me" blog on exploreLI.com contacted me to find out if she could use a photo of bigelow's I had posted here on LIDP. if you'd like to check out erica's review, go here. this is a great resource for anyone looking for a place to eat on long island.
