Not more snow. Mike continues to read the Burlington Free Press on line so he really didn't need the e-mailed notice that we should not expect newspaper delivery today. Apparently, after a day of heavy rain yesterday, it turned cold again in Vermont and snowed heavily through the night. Roads are closed, schools are closed, any non-essential travel is discouraged, and even essential travel is nearly impossible.
Keep in mind that Vermonters typically laugh at places that shut down after a couple inches of snow.
I can't say that I miss any of that. In fact, I am kind of having an anxiety attack just thinking about it. I'm sure there will still be snow on the ground when we return to VT in April.
Pre-retirement, Mike got really anxious at this time of year because of the real possibility of flooding. His shop was (still is) located next to the Winooski River. An ice jam once sent the river water over the banks and flooded the shop. Imagine the rust and oil clean up required after a motorcycle shop floods. Not fun.
Ah, to not have those worries anymore...we went to the beach today and I am not even going to complain one bit that the temperatures were only in the low 70's...so don't hate me.
