Different World Out There

We had to travel to the big city of Burlington (VT) this week to pick up Bill’s planer which was in for repairs. Just 2 hours southwest of us and it’s a different world. They have virtually no snow and people were actually raking lawns. We, on the other hand, still have a lot of snow. But so do the mountains, plenty for spring and Easter weekend skiing, which is good for all of Vermont. We were treated to this view on our way home, about a half hour or so from Burlington.

Even during the change of seasons, I love Vermont!

Welcome Spring!

I’ve been reading other blogs lately that tell of adventures in planting gardens (as far back as January) and picking big bouquets of daffodils just this week. If today is any indication, we will have to wait a bit before that happens here in the Northeast Kingdom.

Poor little bird house!

Spring in Vermont is, at best, a fickle thing. Funny, this seems much more like winter…

Mr. Moose Snowstick says 14″ on the ground (we already had 6″ before the storm).

You might be able to see the little sunk in hole around the stick.  Hard to tell exactly how much snow we’ve got. If anybody cares.

Welcome spring! Another 3″-7″ expected tonight.

But you have to admit, it is pretty! 🙂
