Re: Special guest this weekend....... Autumn!!

WXMAN, love your forecasts!! I almost went into meteorology as a major. Did Geology instead (long story). Things are looking good for a good fall for those of us who look forward to this all year. I hope a hurricane does not muck it all up, but if it is early Sept, we will be OK. Got to go out and s...

Re: My Fall 2011 Album

Great job Carol. I must say I might look forward to your album more than actaully driving around looking at leaves in person! All in all, this was just an OK year in retrospect in some places, but your work is inspiring.

Soth Central Vermont Suggestions for this weekend

Wanted to get some route suggestions for South Central Vermont this weekend since it has been such a variable year. Will be starting from Chester VT and wanted to get the advice from all the folks who have "been out there" over the last week. Should be a perfect time for all. Looking for a...

Re: Waitsfield/Chester/Wallingford Triangle - 10/1/11

Great to see CT and BM on the foliage train! Glad you got to do Popple Dungeon, what a project that must have been to get it passable. Looks like a good long season this year with lots of better weather ahead. It has gotten a lot colder in the last few hours, now it really feels like fall!

Chester Report

Popple Dungeon Road is open! Route 11 near Andover road is still one lane, but not for long. These crews are awesome! What they have done in weeks is beyond belief. Popple Dungeon was washed out in many places and they fixed them all. Oh yes, the leaves. Things look about 1/3 turned in Chester with ...

Re: HAPPY AUTUMN 2011!!!!!

All the best to the leaf peepers. I was coming out of work today and smelled the smell of fall. We don't talk about it much here, but in addtion to the leaves, the smells of fall are intoxicating. The ferns in the forest, leaves giving off the aroma of change, the woodstove burning, apple cider on t...

Re: Report from Chester

Popple Dungeon was washed out twice, so it will be slow to come back. I have not been up to East hill, but it is probably like Potash Brook, which has temporary piping and one lane travel in spots. Will get up there before the big weekend and have a look.

Report from Chester

I was at my little cabin in Chester VT, first visit after Irene. Everything is good there, but lots of roads are under repair. Everyone is working around the clock, so the roads are coming back fast. May still be some one lane highways here and there, but nothing that can't be managed. Leaves looked...

What a weekend! The Chester Craft Fair was so good we went both days and the weather could not be more perfect. Looks like it will continue. Some may be interested in the mountains you are looking at when you are on East Hill looking to the southeast. The largest is Mount Sunapee in NH and to the ri...

Its been very interesting living with Flatlander syndrome at our little cabin. Whenever we go to dinner at the local establishments, I can tell that we look different somehow than the locals and you try to act local but you can't shake that Flatlander look. In fact, we got so tired of getting stoppe...
