On top of Mount Mansfield watching the sunset.
One more stop before going home.
A year ago today I was snowboarding on Mt. Mansfield. It’s a different story today with warmish temperatures and rain. I’m ready for the start of winter.
Having a chilled night wishing for some Deep Purple. Then Hush comes on. Perfect evening.
Fun times finding our way out of the Danville Corn Maze yesterday.
I can’t wait to be back in Vermont.
The rain finally stopped. Hopefully the match will be over before the next wave of showers.
I know summer just started but…I’m ready for snow.
Mmm…oh so good.
Good times at BG’s.
Let’s go Lake Monsters!
I’ve been interested in Mark Twain lately, so it seemed fitting to me when this article about Orion Clemens, Twain’s brother, appeared in my RSS feed. It turns out Orion lived in Vermont for a short time and was editor of the Rutland Daily Globe.
Beating the heat at a local swimming hole.
My friend Ashley came across another video of Vermont. This time it’s about Stowe, the town I live in. Enjoy.
It’s no surprise I love living in Vermont in part because it’s different from other places I have lived. And this video from Skyworks really captures parts of why I love it here.
This looks like it was a lot of fun. Wish I had known about it when it happened last year.
I started organizing developer related meetups in 2001 starting with a weekly happy hour for dev friends and co-workers. Over the years I ended up organizing different types of events, from monthly meetings that included speakers to parties and happy hours to annual snowboarding trips. I even started NSHappyHour for Mac and iOS developers, which is still going on each month in Salem, MA.
Seeing “temperature inversion” in the Stowe snow report this morning is music to my ears. It’s -20°F in town but a balmy 2°F at the summit. Time to ride.
It’s official. It’s really going to happen. We’re moving to a ski town! We’re moving to Stowe, Vermont, in August.
I was hoping to make one more trip to Killington this season before packing away the snowboard, but it doesn’t look like it going to happen. Killington announced today it will close on May 1st for the 2005-2006 season. Looking at recent pictures I’m surprised they are able to stay open that long but Killington does have its image of staying open longer than any other East Coast resort to keep.
What a crappy season the East Coast had this year. Here’s hoping there will be much more snow next season.
