11-11-16 VERMONT: I just realized, while typing in the date, that it’s almost one hundred years since the end of WWI. The armistice ending WWI started on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. The observance was originally called Armistice Day.
Today here is turbulent with gusty winds and overcast sky occasionally letting the sun through and occasionally raining.
I’m done with all the cleanup and winterizing. All the beds are cleared. The shovels are out for clearing the deck and doorways. The reflectors are up for the guys who plow the driveway. The furnaces have been serviced.
We’ll be back in NJ after the weekend.
That's ice on the end of the pond, a few days ago...
Actually, about half the ice has melted at his point.
Today is windy with dark clouds but blue poking through at times.
