Congratulations to John Zettel

Talk to DC business owners who are in the know,
They say “not many tourists if there’s not a lot of snow.”
This season we were blessed when others seemed to pale.
Ample snow was evidenced by open signs on the trail.

You know snow doesn’t fall on a trail all soft and wide –
It takes a groomer with some knowhow and a 140 grand ride.
John’s been working at this job for about 32 years –
Not alone in this endeavor with four others he calls peers.

With the past season’s snowfall for some others quite concerning,
For John it was maintain and repair to keep it all a’turning.
If you’ve got adult toys and a sled like baby boomers,
How about a shout-out to John and the rest of the groomers.
