Weathersfield News, Week of March 31, 2014

In Weathersfield, it looks like spring is finally on the way. I was doing barn chores in my shirt sleeves, got out my favorite 'old hoe' and was diverting water down the drive way to get rid of the puddles. It was a beautiful, sunny day!  The weather forecast for the week looks promising - not only for the snow to melt but the sap to run!

However, I entered another time zone on Sunday afternoon. I drove to Hardwick, VT to spend a couple of days with my sister, Cathy and her son, Corey. Winter is still in full swing up this way. Snow banks in their yard easily hide my minivan from the street. There was ice and snow on the windshield when I got up to take Corey to school at 7:15. The dogs are quickly in and out, not wanting to hang out in the fenced in back yard for too long.

I'm very glad that I will be returning in short order to the southern part of the state where the snow banks are diminishing and the sap is running. While I love visiting my sister and nephew, I will be happy to leave the arctic zone.

The list is out! There are many positions left to be filled in the Town.
