Vermont Spring

3-28-06 VERMONT: March in Vermont can be very snowy. This year we have almost no snow left and less mud than usual because of the dry winter. The color of early spring is brown, brown snow, brown mud, brown grass, and brown leaves. Sugaring is in progress, and our trees are being tapped by the neighbors. We await brown maple syrup.

Val, Steve, Maggie, Lucy and I went skiing at Loon Mt. Resort yesterday. Maggie and Lucy and Steve took lessons while Val and I explored the top of the mountain. Everyone had a good time and looks forward to more skiing, even Steve, whose fun was a bit tempered by a fall and a broken arm followed by an evening in the ER at DHMC.
