April Surprise Snowstorm
April 29, 2010
After the storm in Jericho Center.
If you weren’t in northern Vermont for this week’s wild winter storm, maybe you heard about it. Less than a week after the snow tires were taken off my Subaru, Mother Nature decided to dump more than a foot of heavy, wet snow across the Green Mountains.
Here we are just a few days before the first of May, and it snowed for about 30 hours straight. Power lines came down, trees were uprooted, and cars slid off the road. It was ridiculous.
Before this happened, it seemed like spring was in full swing in Vermont. The landscape was blooming, the birds were singing, and the peepers were loud at night.
So I really wasn’t ready for 22 inches of snow to fall in my backyard on Wednesday. But thankfully it’s melting fast. Like most people around here, I just want it to be spring again.
