They Fixed the Road …


And it looks like Mud Season’s over. The big waves and troughs are scraped and buried for another year. And it’s a bit early because of a surprisingly warm April, so far.

… And Signs of Spring

Part of the scene at the Burlington, VT, waterfront, on Lake Champlain, over the past weekend. Lots of people out after a long winter.

We Got Mud Season

It wasn’t really a hard winter, but after early January, it consistently was moderately cold. So, apparently, the frost settled deeply into the dirt roads. The beauty of this mud bog is that it is just at the end of our driveway, so you don’t have to go far to watch the fun. And you can hear the sounds of scraping metal without even going outside. Plus, with just a short drive you can experience it yourself.

No Leaf Unturned

It seemed as though real spring would never arrive, but overnight, the leaves popped and it was here. Most of these are in the town of East Montpelier, VT.

Spring & Snow

A funny spring so far: warm and then cold with snow sweeping across the highlands. Now we have the leaves ready to pop and the mountaintops are white. Makes for a nice contrast of green and white, but warm temperatures are coming and in about a week it will really look like spring. These are all in the stately rolling town of East Montpelier, VT.

Spring Starts

I have been posting mostly on Instagram these days, so I have fallen behind on posts here. Now I’m catching up.
Even the COVID-19 stay-at-home order can’t stop spring’s slow arrival in northern Vermont. Right now it’s just at the muted brown and gray stage, but every day the greens of May are a little nearer. These are all along the North Branch of the Winooski River, about a half-mile down the road.

April in Vermont

Well, it may be spring where you are, but it’s not quite spring here. These were all taken the past two days. Above, there’s mud under the snow in East Montpelier. Below and bottom, the Slayton Pasture trail at the Trapp Family Lodge, Stowe.
