Arrival at Stowe

January 14, 2006
6:20 PM

Here we are at Stowe. After two days of driving, we’re sitting here in our condo, watching the Seattle-Washington game, our bellies full of home-baked pizza and German beer. I’m going to try really hard to stay up until 8:30 to watch the Broncos/Patriot game. All I know is the Broncos better play a good game or I’ll have to forsake them for bed. (I didn’t sleep well in the motel in Connecticut last night.)

Okay, so we arrived here in Vermont, and it’s like spring outside. Temperatures in the 40s with fog and rain. All the rivers look swollen from snowmelt; the conditions on the slopes say “spring conditions.” Not good. But…the forecast is calling for snow tonight, six to eight inches, so our fingers are crossed. Anyway, we won’t be skiing until Tuesday, so hopefully, things will get better.

Tomorrow I’m planning to check out the consignment shop—that’s Kathy & my annual “must do” whenever we come to Stowe. She wants to watch the Colts-Steeler game tomorrow at 1:00, so I don’t know if she’ll go with me. I’m betting, though, I’ll be able to talk her into it. Sunday is really the only day we can go because Monday, we have appointments for a day at the Topnotch Spa, compliments of my wonderful husband, Frank.
