It's gonna be abit chilly starting at the end of the week. Low's in the lower 20's forecast around here. Many resorts will be pumping out snow as well as several resorts are hoping to open in a few weeks, 11/19.

Boy, you'd never guess that forecast based solely on today's weather. Late afternoon found me outside cutting the grass in shorts and sneakers. But today was the anomaly, not so much the cold days ahead. Tonight it's raining, which tells me that today's sunshine was surely a gift or maybe just one of those loans - which we will no doubt repay. Maybe this weekend? Fair weather is usually short-lived in late October.

I had tea on my deck. It was gorgeous. We have no oil left as we're waiting for a gas conversion on Friday. Hope it runs smoothly...

How costly is it to convert a furnace from oil to gas???

The conversion is free with the gas company. We rent the burner from the gas company for $14 a month which includes yearly cleaning and all service charges. It works out a good deal seeing as the furnace was fairly new. Took them two and half hours and 3 trucks! The gas company will call around to asess whether you can convert and compare your use against oil. Our cost will now be the equivalent if paying just over $2 for oil.

Forecasters are now saying a nor'easter will hit NE Sat night. 6-10" in the southern part of Vermont, 2-4" for the north.

I saw my first official snowflakes of the year this evening (all 6 or 8 of them) just after gassing up in Troy. Looks like we'll miss the brunt of this storm, but I'm ready. Leaves all raked, snow tires on two of the 3 vehicles, lawn furniture put away, 7 cords of wood at the ready and now just twiddling my thumbs.

As I was driving home from work today I noticed all the bare trees and green fields - a combination of scenery that usually doesn't last long. Looks like nature is ready too. I talked with a lot of folks today and some of them welcome winter while others seem to dread it. My unofficial findings are (not like I was taking a survey or anything) that natives seem to dislike the upcoming season a little more than transplants.
