Hungry? Yeah… we know. Us too, and unfortunately this isn’t a candy bar commerical, and actually we all will just have to wait. As you know, it’s been a tough start on the East Coast, with every blanket of white returned to sender. Anything resembling a base has been pretty much nonexistent. Last week’s Delta Force moved faster than hoped, and although Northern Vermont squeaked out a bit more than forecast, those in the Southern half of the state hoping for a repeat of Baker (and Baker’s gifts) were mostly disappointed. With a bit more than expected north of Route 2 though, a few nooks and crannies managed to start looking pretty good.
An auteur had come before leaving his or her signature. We felt bad having to sully their work.
But in times of famine, a feast is not to be passed over.
Indeed, the feast was short lived, and it was back to famine as we survived our way back to the car… well… I just managed to survive, while Kristin apparently shredded.
Was it worth it to head out today? For some the answer is probably “no,” and I’m not one to argue with them, but for us the answer was an unequivocal: “YES.” Exercise and snow and sun in non-zero quantities are always worth it to us, but I suppose you also have to recall that we’ve done silly stuff like this (and that’s not even mentioning this). Regardless… chin up… it can (still) be a lot worse, and we might just be spoiled by comparing to the last few seasons which have featured above average early season conditions. (Can anyone say “VTah V“?)
