Weather Watch: Looking Back at Winter Forecasts

Posted on February 28, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Charlie Hohn



This week may bring the largest snowstorm of the winter to Addison County, but it will pale in comparison to the storms of last year - and to the forecasts many made last fall of a snowy winter.  As winter nears its end, it is a good time to look back at these winter forecasts and see how they fared against actual conditions.

Staff Blog: Revisiting Lincoln's Cooper Union Address

Posted on February 27, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Angelo S. Lynn



In this political era in which the leading Republicans of the land stumble over themselves to reject the wisdom of separating church in state in a political context; in which cutting taxes to corporations is the panacea for all that ails us; in which cow-towing to the fanatical wing of the party is the only path to the nomination; it is instructive and nostalgic, perhaps, to want to revisit President Abraham Lincoln’s speech on slavery made in the Cooper Union, New York City on Feb. 27, 1860 – 152 years ago.

On the ball: H.S. playoffs arrive

Posted on February 27, 2012 | Blog Category:
By Andy Kirkaldy



As expected, the Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team and both Middlebury Union hockey teams learned on Monday from the Vermont Principals’ Association they would host first-round playoff games.

The 18-2 Commodore boys earned the top seed for the Division II playoffs and will host No. 16 Lamoille (6-14) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. A win on Tuesday means VUHS will host a Friday quarterfinal at 7 p.m. against either No. 8 Fair Haven (10-10) or No. 9 Bellows Falls (11-9). The Commodores have not faced any of those three teams this season.

Camel's Hump Sledding

By Christian Woodard



So, winter was cancelled in the Champlain Valley. It’s too bad, but it’s time to stop whining and go sledding. Winter is still scheduled on top of Vermont’s four highest mountains. Where the coverage isn’t great for skiing, sledding is a great alternative. Plus, it’s only a semi-skilled sport, and all it requires is a piece of plastic tarp. In the right conditions, you can sled in just your snowpants.

Weather Watch: February Thaw?

Shattered Ice on Middlebury River

January brought many thaws to choose from, rather than just one, and February’s first day brought a thaw as well.

(as seen to the left, after heavy rain at the end of January, the ice in the Middlebury River was ripped loose and strewn on the banks)

Wednesday would have seemed like a very warm day, but because I had just come back from a week-long visit to southern California (where it approached 80 degrees), the weather seemed a bit cool.  In reality, it was very warm for the first day of February -

It seems like just yesterday that Middlebury College’s “Self Reliance” solar-powered house headed down to Washington, D.C., to compete in the biennial Solar Decathlon competition. The Middlebury kids last fall claimed fourth place overall in an international field of entries.

The U.S. Department of Energy today released its picks for the 2013 round of the highly selective competition, and Middlebury College once again made the cut.
