Posted on February 2, 2015 |

I love cold weather. Maybe it’s because I was born in January, or maybe it’s the part of me that kind of likes it when things are a little hard, but either way, it makes me feel alive.

I admit that there are times when it’s hard to leave a cozy perch with a blanket on the couch in pursuit of a venture outside when temperatures are in the single digits and the wind is whipping through the trees.

ADDISON COUNTY — Last year, the Public Service Board approved 26 projects in Addison County larger than 15 kilowatts, the largest of which were a 2.2-megawatt array in Middlebury and a 2.0-megawatt array in Bridport.

VERGENNES — Piles of snow, packed together in rows like moguls, occupy the parking lot of Falls Park on the south bank of the Otter Creek below Vergennes’ majestic falls.
