Fingers Crossed for Snow

Stowe Snowshoe
I was expecting at least a little bit of snow to blanket my yard in northern Vermont this weekend. For the past two years, we’ve had at least one major storm around Thanskgiving, so I figured we were due for a big winter blast.My plan for Saturday was to work off all of that turkey and stuffing with a snowshoe trek in the woods behind my house. But it never happened. The snow held off, and I was too lazy and full to exercise anyway.Thankfully the higher elevations and ski areas, including Stratton, Jay Peak and Killington, did receive some snow over the weekend. But the lack of any significant snowfall in recent weeks has forced several Vermont ski resorts to delay opening. Still, we’re hoping Mother Nature will cooperate over the next week and deliver a major storm.
