Re: Any Early Predictions?

Hey CT! Nice to 'see' you. Thanks. As we all know, a bad weather weekend in Vermont always beats a great day at work....anytime!

Hoping for the best (aka most colorful)!

Any Early Predictions?

Hi Folks, Weather here in Litchfield County, CT has been MISERABLE! Rain and humid for weeks. I'll be heading to Arlington 10/12 - 10/14, and was wondering how the weather has been in that area and weather the foliage will be any better than last year. Hope all is well, and Autumn starts exactly one...

Re: What gives????

Well, I think the peak finally hit the Litchfield Hills in CT this weekend, as most areas seem to have brought better color than i experienced in Southern Vermont last weekend. Even the Innkeepers stated that is was a late season this year, so I 'rolled the dice' and booked the same weekend for next...

Re: Southern Vermont Report

Bummer, as I will be heading to Arlington tomorrow. And to top it off, what looked like a great weekend weather wise (the rain was pushing out each day), now today shows solid rain for both Saturday and Sunday. EVERY OTHER DAY before and after is cloudless :(

Re: What gives????

Hi CT! I will, thanks. Woodbury literally changed overnight last weekend. I think the trees got tired of waiting for the cooler air, and succumbed to the lack of longer daylight. I think with the cooler days we have had (thank gawwwwwd that humidity is gone), things will accelerate.

What gives????

Making my annual pilgrimage to VT this coming weekend. Seems like in all the years I have been coming, it always rains....BUT......70+ degress? I recall weekends in October where there was light snow and temps below 45-50!

Re: Dorset: Dorset Quarry, Dorset Hollow and Hollow Loop

I swan in the Dorset Quarry two years ago. Invigorating experience! The water even 'tasted' as clean as it appears.

I swam across and climbed one of the marble 'platforms' and jumped. Looks a lot higher when you are standing on top!

Holy COW, CT! Talk about one resourceful blogger!!!!!! You are truly an asset to this forum.

I am praying for nice weather, as I think in all the years I have been going to VT in the Fall, the sun comes out when I hit Hartford on my way home :(

Have a fun trip!

Re: Arlington area on 10/13 - 10/15

Hi CT! I have been going to VT every year, but haven't been on the forum for a while. I forget how useful this forum is!! I am actually moving to Woodbury next week, which is in Litchfield County. What's nice is I am on 5+ acres, surrounded by 50+ acres of Flanders nature preserve. It's like my litt...

Arlington area on 10/13 - 10/15

Hi All, I'll be coming to VT for my annual foliage weekend, and this year pushed it back from the first weekend in October to the 13th. Any early predictions on color in the Arlington area that weekend? I also scheduled a VT train ride on the 14th that goes from Chester to Okemo and back. Thanks in ...

Looks like another 'miss' this year :(

Hi Everyone, So, I will be at The Arlington Inn on October 3-4, and up until this morning, the weather showed sunny. It appears that's not the case now :( Also, it appears that due to the warmer-than-usual weather, there may be minimal color in that region. Thoughts? Has anyone seen color in the Arl...

Hi CT! Sadly, I cannot make the trip this year. I have, though, been 'living' it through your posts. I am actualy excited for you and the 'gang'. Honestly, there is a tree in my backyard that started to change, and today at work (I work in Shelton), I noticed several healthy Maples turning orange an...
