Is Louisville Dreaming of a White Christmas?

To begin with, if you're hoping for some snowfall on Christmas Day, history really isn't on our side here in the Louisville area. According to the National Weather Service, we have only seen trace amounts of snowfall on Christmas Day about 20-25% of the time during this new century…not very often.

In the year 2009 we saw the record for the most snow on the ground for Christmas here in the tristate.  We had a whopping average of nine inches of snow left over from a brutal winter storm. Be careful what you wish for! The very next year we held on to three inches of snow and we actually enjoyed a real White Christmas.

What will 2020 bring? We all know that it has been among the most challenging years in history around here. Whatever this season and the year 2021 has in store, The Don Embry Body Shop will be here in Louisville at 8272 Dixie Highway to help you if you need any auto body repair. A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville.

Almost 60 Years Ago.

The year was 1962. In October, America was on the brink of WWIII when the Cuban missile crisis unfolded. Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in an NBA game in March. West Side Story was awarded Best Picture at the Academy Awards Ceremony in April. Astronaut Scott Carpenter orbited the Earth THREE times.

It seems like eons ago, and for a business to stay alive and thriving after almost 60 years is quite amazing. Just as a reference point 70% of small businesses cannot survive even 10 years! To be around serving the Louisville area after all this time takes pride, professionalism, and above all, the willingness to grow with the times.

That is why Louisville and the surrounding area still counts on The Don Embry Body Shop as we are about to enter 2021. Yes, they even survived the challenging year of 2020. If you need auto body repair or painting you merely have to call The Don Embry Body Shop at (502) 935-1373 and make an appointment at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.
