Crazy Weather lately, but We’ll Take It!

P4030404The year 2010 has brought all sorts of crazy weather – including a handful of terrible earthquakes.  For the Northeast, the last 3-4 weeks have been nothing short of a little insane.  Six weeks ago was a big dumping of snow – Vermont received 5 feet of snow over the course of 2-3 days.  Then came the Nor’easter.  I blogged about this crazy wind and rain storm that blindsided us, exerted a tremendous amount of damage, and left several neighborhoods without power for up to a week.  Then just shy of two weeks later, an awful rain storm hit.  Some parts of CT and RI received up to 10 inches of rain – Rhode Island hasn’t seen flooding this bad in well over 100 years.  Parts of I-95 were even shut down.

And now for this past weekend.  We were up in Vermont to conclude our season of skiing.  Did you know that Vermont was warmer than Florida this weekend?  77 degrees!  As you can see by this picture, we all skiied in t-shirts, wished we had shorts on (because it was hot!) and my oldest son got one heck of a burn. The conditions were surprisingly good, so there were no complaints from our end.  There will probably never be another time that we can ride a chairlift up to the top of the mountain, with snow all around us, in a t-shirt, and be perfectly comfortable.  It was nothing short of incredible!
