Just in time … the weekend.
The in-laws are coming next week so this is my last weekend to get the honey-do list done. Weather guessers say it looks like the weather will cooperate and the burning desire to stop what I’m doing to watch the Red Sox faded away not long after the All Star break.
So, here’s to getting the list knocked out, whether it is chores or fun, have a great weekend. Here’s hoping you have something on tap more fun than hanging hose reels, replacing light fixtures and cleaning out the garage.
It’s been a nippy couple of mornings.
Do you think this is a preview of fall or the real thing.
I love the fall in Vermont. If it just wasn’t followed by winter.
Sent my kids off to school today. I know some schools started last week or earlier this week, but finally, my house is quiet in the middle of the day.
So watch for kids this morning. There are going to be a lot of kids running around who don’t always watch for cars and have many things other than safety on their minds. Please watch out for them.
Everybody has their story about this day one year ago. Unfortunately, many of the stories are tales of destruction. But following those initial stories are incredible tales of determination, compassion and an enduring ethic that has been defined by the slogan “We are Vermont strong.”
It was one year ago today that a new Vermont was born. A Vermont that is better.
CHESTER — Vermont State Police are targeting drunk and aggressive drivers this upcoming Labor Day weekend.
State police along with local and county law enforcement agencies are beefing up patrols and setting up DUI checkpoints in Windham and Windsor Counties from Aug. 31 through Sept. 3.
Vermont has experienced more than 50 deaths on the roads so far this year. State police say that’s about double the number from this time last year.
They say the goal of the stepped-up enforcement during the holiday weekend is to reduce crashes.
It’s looking like a great day and it’s Friday, which makes it an all-around great day.
The Red Sox sunk to a season low last night, but I’ll put that in another post so those of you who are fed up and can skip it if you want.
Otherwise, the weekend is nearly upon us and the weather should be decent at least so let’s get this last day over with.
What a beautiful day yesterday was and today will bring more of the same.
Red Sox slide continues. If you have a weak stomach, it’s probably best if you don’t look.
What a beautiful morning.
I apologize to those of you seeing some fog and low clouds, but it’s a great start to the day where I am.
Most of you will be seeing a nice day as the fog burns off.
So enjoy this Hump Day, the weekend is in sight.
Loving these e cool nights. Not sure what the long-range forecast is, but there’s certainly a feel of fall in the air during the evenings and early mornings.
It won’t be long now. Any day, I expect to see the first batch of leaves on some tree flip from green to red and soon there will be trees ablaze all over.
For now, enjoy the rest of August. We’ll be missing these temperatures soon.
RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) The U.S. Forest Service is asking for public input for a project primarily in Dorset and Peru that would improve habitat diversity and forest health, restore eroded areas and improve public access opportunities in parts of Vermont’s Green Mountain National Forest.
The Green Mountain National Forest staff is seeking public comments on its preliminary Environmental Assessment for the Dorset Peru Integrated Resource Project. The comment period is open 30 days.
The project would also restore stream function by adding large woody debris and replacing culverts, preserve heritage resources such as an old mill, furnace and kiln sites.
More than 2,000 acres of timber harvesting is proposed to support the local economy, enhance forest health and create more diverse wildlife habitat.
