Re: So Mother Nature Has Thrown Us A Curve Ball...

Looking back a couple of years and 2015 was sort of like this in that the foliage ended up being a bit late. However, that year just started late and I don't recall there being much early color change. From this morning: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4433/37203381116_451afcf699_c.jpg Early Hillside...

Re: So Mother Nature Has Thrown Us A Curve Ball...

I just took a drive around the northern Passumpsic River valley this morning. It is amazing how this heat completely stopped the color change. Many of the leaves on trees that were showing early decent color have dried up and fallen off. However, that is less than 10% of the leaves. There are still ...

Re: Foliage This Year - Some Observations and Comments

Very good points. I think the deep river valleys peaking earlier than the hilltops is due to morning fog. The thick fog can often hang in those valleys until almost midday which the trees adjust to as shorter amounts of daylight. So they shed their leaves earlier.

Re: State Foliage Report for September 20th

If it wasn't for this unusually warm weather we would have been peaking this week. The heat has really slowed down the initial early color change.

I just saw your Little Averill Pond video on Good Morning America's Facebook page. 913,000 views :shock:

Re: Fall trip. Need help to fix my routes

Your plan looks excellent. Hardwick and/or Greensboro do not have a lot of lodging options. You may want to get something reserved very soon if you haven't already.

Re: New England trip. Seeking suggestion

By the 30th there should be near peak/peak color almost everywhere except the Champlain Valley and area of NH south of White Mtns. Stowe and St Johnsbury are both roughly a 2 hr drive from Killington. Killington is a very nice area. It may make a good base even with the 2 hour drives to get to the o...

Re: Two questions regarding iPhone !!!

Verizon has pretty good coverage in most places. There are some rural areas where service is spotty. However, if you are driving around you will usually pick up service again in a few miles. The most annoying and inexplicable Verizon dead zone I know of is Route 2 between West Danville and Montpelie...

Re: New England trip. Seeking suggestion

As mmvt mentioned, the northeastern part of Vermont (aka Northeast Kingdom/NEK) is less commercialized than most other parts of the state. However, that can also be a be a bonus during foliage season since you won't have to contend with lots of other foliage chasers on the roads and at popular attra...

Re: Which weekend and which area to visit New England ?

Bsparks, Abby/Carol covered the details quite well for your earlier set of dates. The NEK (Northeast Kingdom) of Vermont is made up of the three northeastern counties of the state. The Burke Mtn Hotel is right in the center and is highly recommended. If you get a room with a north view, you will be ...

Re: Recent Vermont Weather

The green is certainly fading here in the NEK. There is even talk of potential frost Friday night :shock:
I'll be sure to report as the season progresses.
