My Vermont "Bucket List" is Growing!!!

Hello everyone! Just finished hours of scraping ice off the walks, car and driveway from our mega ice storm yesterday! I've now settled down, nice and cozy but exhausted (this winter UGH :evil: ), and thinking as always of the planning stages of my next Vermont adventure! There is sooooo much to do ...

Re: It's 2018 and time to kickstart your Vermont fall foliage plans!

Here is the link for Lye Brook Falls and directions. I'm really looking forward to this hike in the fall. My friends are hiking it today and can't wait to hear about their experience in this frigid weather! Some tripadvisor comments coin it as easy to moderate, while others say it is moderate to dif...

It's 2018 and time to kickstart your Vermont fall foliage plans!

Hello to all of you Vermont fall foliage seekers! It's right about now that I start my annual Vermont thread for the next foliage season, and the reason it is a couple of weeks early, is that I am so tired of this deep freeze! :evil: After this past brutal weekend, just when I thought I could not ta...

Re: Tis the Season..............and the deep freeze continues!

Happy New Year everyone! This deep freeze is getting old!!!!! :shock: For those of you who are in warmer climates, much of the northeast, specifically New England, has been below freezing since Christmas Day and this chill is expected to continue for another week with one blip on Wednesday. We may r...

First Snow of the Season Is Upon Us in So. New England!

Well here we go! The snowflakes will be flying tomorrow across CT and this will be our first winter snowfall. A bit unexpected as they were predicting little or no snow. And with this season's late leaf drop, the yards are still covered with leaves and some of the trees are still partially covered i...

Re: 2017 Vermont/New Hampshire Photos

Janice: your photos are phenomenal! You really captured some amazing color despite it all and I loved your scenic and whimsical shots! Where were all the umbrellas taken? That was very cute!

STICK SEASON

Hello all: Hard to believe but we are just entering stick season in Connecticut in my area. NW and NE full out in sticks, but we are seriously hanging on still to some fully leafed out trees, and I mean GREEN trees, like summer. The ones that were starting to turn so late in the season, and were onc...

Re: Connecticut Foliage October 2017

Hi Janice: no wind in sight for the entire week and now I'm getting a tad nervous with this "system" coming in Sunday night on the heels of a VERY cold set up for the next five days! 30s for a high on Friday and Saturday with teens over the weekend at night. Time to get the fleece and wint...

Re: Connecticut Foliage October 2017

Oddly enough, in my surrounding area, we have huge expanses of green trees left where it still looks like summer, trees that are just about to burst into color, trees peaking with oranges and reds, and about 25% bare or becoming bare trees. This is the longest season I have ever encountered! Not com...

Re: Off Topic- Storm

Janice: thanks for the kind thoughts. We here in CT got a TON of rain again. The winds picked up about 10 p.m. and I awoke at 1 a.m. to quite a howling outside. The shoreline got hit the worst with mega power outages. A lot of trees down because they were fully leafed out and soggy! But surprisingly...
