Jessie Raymond: Photos show a different side of winter

Posted on February 26, 2015 |
By Jessie Raymond



This hasn’t been the easiest of winters. Perhaps you’ve noticed.

Most years we at least get a January thaw, a few gentle days that bolster our spirits enough to get us through the miserable days still to come. This year, we’ve had approximately one day above freezing since Labor Day, and enough days below zero that I keep thinking my thermometer is broken. (If only.)

Greg Dennis: Vermont has felt its share of cold

Posted on February 26, 2015 |
By Greg Dennis



There’s an old story about the Vermont farmer who had his farm in the Connecticut River Valley.

Over the years, the river had changed course several times and eventually, out-of-state surveyors were hired to determine exactly where the state line was.

When their work was completed, it fell to one of the surveyors to tell the old Vermont farmer that his land was in fact not in Vermont, but was actually in New Hampshire.

“I’m mighty glad to hear that!” the farmer said.

Opinion: Ruminating on driving, snowfall

Posted on February 25, 2015 |
By Mary Burchard



Just thinking — if Vermonters are so helpful and caring of their neighbors why do so many still drive too fast for conditions and/or tailgate?

And wouldn’t it be great if all the snow that people can’t find room for here in the Northeast could be loaded into waterproof vehicles and trucked to the areas of the Southwest that are suffering record drought?

Dickerson: Offering praise for the white stuff

Posted on February 18, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



I hesitate to use superlatives in writing, especially when describing any sort of sporting activity or weather phenomena. We live in an age of hyper-sensationalism when blizzards are given names and every other snowstorm is hyped up to be the storm of the decade (or century), when any athlete who makes a decent play is called a “hero,” and when a football that loses a bit of air pressure due to a drop in temperature gets national media attention for a week and prompts calls for public executions.

Platform tennis: Dark, cold and a whole lot of fun

Posted on February 2, 2015 |
By Christy Lynn



Paddleball3637.jpg

Platform tennis is an unusual sport because it seems that those who have been exposed to it quickly become obsessed; everyone else has never heard of it.

The rules of the game are much like doubles tennis and the court looks very similar, albeit about a third the size of a tennis court and built on a platform (hence the name) with 12-foot-tall walls that come up on all sides made out of chicken wire fencing that is held in high tension so that players can hit the ball as it bounces off the wire (similar to racquetball or squash).

Christy Lynn: in praise of cold weather

Posted on February 2, 2015 |
By Christy Lynn



Christy.jpg

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.

Enter Trudy, my energetic border collie, who provides the nudge to get me in motion on even the coldest days.

How do toads avoid croaking in the winter?

Posted on December 11, 2014 |
By Tiffany Soukup



The Outside Story.jpg

I manage a lodge in the Groton forest on behalf of Vermont State Parks. One warm fall day, while standing outside the lodge, I noticed movement inside one of the window wells around the basement. Realizing that something noteworthy was about to happen, I ran inside to alert our guests.

Posted on November 24, 2014 |
By John Flowers



ADDISON COUNTY — With the thermometer now consistently dipping below the freezing mark, Addison County residents of limited means have been firing up their furnaces and wood stoves with the hope that they won’t run out of fuel before the end of the winter. And various state and local organizations are offering programs to make sure frigid temperatures don’t claim any victims during the frigid months ahead.
