    and you know those pics don’t do justice to what Greg saw. Those sights are what make people ride a BUS from down yonder for days to see. Once unloaded them for $.50/bag when there was a HJ hotel on williston rd in burlington, now a friendly’s,all them people from Tennessee come to the the trees.
    As for snow, well Lionel was right about the weather and timing, just off a few hundred miles SOUTH– here’a link:
