Snow. Relief for the Vermont economy!

We're in the midst of our first true Vermont snowfall here, with accumlation and high winds. Current temperature is 31 degrees and dropping fast. It officially feels like December now.

I'm relieved the snow is here. Vermont's economy depends so much on seasonal travel--foliage, skiing and snowboarding. If the weather doesn't cooperate, the ski areas (and by extension, everyone else who relies on tourist income) really pay the price.

I won't complain. Our friends in the Midwest got hit hard recently. In my opinion, we're getting off easy. But I do wish I had finished bringing in my outdoor projects from the yard.
