President Obama Visits Vermont!

Before a crowd of about 4500 people, President Obama laid out his plan to get Vermonters to vote for him in November. His speech was very inspirational and the crowd was pumped to be seeing their first President in 15 (when then President Clinton paid a visit to the state.) The Vermont Democrats were out in force: Burlington Mayor Elect Miro Weinberger Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin Vermont's US Senator Pat Leahy But a lot of folks were there not only to see and hear the President but also there to see and hear Vermont native Grace Potter and her band the Nocturnals. Even the President of the United States was impressed with their performance!

Mud Season means Sugaring Time!

Maple Syrup Making 101 Weathersfield VT Spring 2012 By  Nancy Nutile-McMenemy Every spring the good folks of Vermont, most with severe cabin fever, hang out all kinds of buckets to collect the sweet sap that runs through the maple trees around the state. These are the same trees that provide such amazing color during Fall Foliage, but in the spring before the buds or leaves, it's the sap that provides joy to the people of Vermont and beyond. "Liquid Gold" many call it and at today's prices it surely is liquid gold! So what is this tradition all about..after this very strange winter of 2011-2012 it is time to try to collect enough sap to make some Maple Syrup (I still have about 1/2 gallon in the freezer from last year's sap run.) This year the sap ran in  February  but we didn't tap at that time thinking it would be a quick run. We held off until the traditional tapping time of Town Meeting Day (March 6 this year). Once daytime temperatures start reachin
