When you live it Vermont it would be sacrilege to hope for an early end to winter (I, for one, am not even close to being done skiing). However, in our house Groundhog day does bring a little spring fever; for the start of baseball season is indeed right around the corner – at least for the big-leaguers. Us Little League parents and kids need to wait 3 more months regardless of what the groundhog says.
We can wait. Somewhat patiently.
Until the spring comes so that we can toss a ball, we do hope that on Monday Feb 2 ‘ole Punxsutawney Phil*** sees his shadow and crawls back into his den for another 6 weeks of winter.
And in that vein, lets talk about what we have going on in this beautifully snowy winter land of the Mad River Valley that can keep us out of trouble in the meantime.
Thursday Jan 29: Everyday Cooking – From the Sea class at The Store
Thursday Jan 29: $30 Thursday at Mount Ellen (and most other Thursdays, except holidays, until the end of March)
Saturday Jan 31: Mad River Glen Beer Lovers dinner & Full moon snowshoe
Sunday Feb 1: Mad River Valley Mountaineering Race **
**UPDATE 1/31/15: Race has been postponed until March 22!
***UPDATE 2/2/15: Shadow appears, forecast for six more weeks of winter!!! (in case the snow coming down today wasn’t enough of an indication)
Live Vermont, Live Mad River.
