Well, this is turning out to be quite a winter! The snow Friday into Saturday was so heavy that I struggled to clear my deck. Yet Saturday night’s was mostly light and fluffy. I believe we received a total of 14 inches here in Tyson. We are definitely in a snow zone – Rutland had mainly rain.
I heard that 20+ inches fell on Lynds Hill, though. I understand that several brave families made it to the Bethany Birches Camp Fun Day on Saturday and while adhering to Covid precautions, did indeed have fun. Snow camps will be happening this year with similar safeguards. For more information and to register, please go to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-672-5220.

I was told that moose tracks have been seen on Scout Camp Rd recently. When I worked in Windsor and traveled the Tyson/Reading Rd, I used to see these huge creatures regularly. Snowshoeing on the Patch Brook Rd on Tuesday, we did not see moose tracks, but plenty of deer ones. I admit that I have trouble distinguishing dog, coyote, and fox, which were there as well.
Just a reminder of the special meeting to discuss the proposed Airbnb regulations and the appointment of the Collector of Delinquent Taxes coming up on 1/27. Voting will be on 1/28 and I imagine that absentee ballots can be obtained if you call the Town Building.
