It is barely the end of October and the pumpkins and mums have a white coating this morning on the porch of Vermont Properties.
As we sit on the cusp of autumn and winter we know what is in our not so distant future. The Old Farmers’ Almanac is once again predicting a cold and snowy winter for the northeast. Now, I know some of you might be thinking… Farmers’ Almanac? What next, are they watching the wooly bear caterpillars too? The short answer is, yes…yes we are; but before you fall down laughing, know that these two indicators of our winter weather are usually on target. Granted, we Vermonters may have some strange ideas but many have stood the test of time. They have been passed down from generation to generation. And really, isn’t that one of the reasons you love Vermont so much?
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, ”New Englanders will once again experience a very frigid winter”, with lots of snow in the forecast again this year. January and February are being flagged as experiencing some very heavy winter weather (aka SNOW) which is expected to last through to March. So sharpen your skis and boards, the East Coast is gearing up for some ideal mountain conditions.
Of course, Okemo has their fantastic snowmaking upgrades all ready to step in should Mother Nature take a vacation. Either way, we will have you covered…. In snow!
Stop by and see us when you come to Vermont. If you decide to stay, we can help you find your very own piece of winter paradise.
Dig out those long johns or Hot Chillys, whatever keeps you warm. You’re going to need them!
