An open letter to Vermont’s Best Month of the Year Award Committee:
Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to nominate October for Best Month.
I know I should defend my birth month instead: “March is great. There’s nothing as uplifting as a heavy, wet snowstorm just when it seemed like spring was coming. And all that mud! When I wake up on a blustery March day, it feels good just to be alive.” But I just can’t.
