We had our first light snow here the other day, just in time for Halloween. Ok, that's not funny, but we did. It was odd to see the white blanket of cold as I headed East towards Williston. Burlington did not get any to cover the ground, but we got to see snow flakes. When I was driving downtown in the early morning, I saw what looked to be a college student with his ski boots slung over his shoulder heading to his car. I thought at the time, oh to be young again. The first snow is always exciting to the young, and not so much to me.There will be plenty of time to shovel. Don't get me wrong, I really do enjoy skiing, I just prefer to do it in December and beyond rather than starting in October.
