Weathersfield Weekly Blog March 7

Town Meeting day, that annual Spring tradition here in Vermont (almost like mud season-not as long but still kind of painful) has come and gone. Town meeting results may be viewed HERE.  I hope you all participated and got out to vote. It's our voices in the ears of the town officials. And speaking of Spring, Daylight Savings starts March 11 (Spring Forward) so move your clocks ahead one hour before bed Sunday night.

After a quick stop at the Northampton Brewery in Northampton, MA on Saturday, we saw the Signature Sounds PresentsBack Porch Festival on Saturday night. A truly terrific night of music by some very talented singer/songwriters.
