One of my weather apps noted there might be snow this morning (Monday), so waking up to sunshine instead was delightful! I also had a frisky doe prancing up and down my driveway and setting off my alarm today She seemed excited about the prospect of spring, as are the myriad of chirping birds. Yes, it is still early and not time to retrieve the hummingbird feeder from the garage yet, but there are hopeful signs that winter may be retreating.
Of course we still have snow in the Dublin Rd area, but that is not unusual. As a matter of fact several young fellows had a mishap on Patch Brook Rd when GPS sent them that way back to their rental house in Mount Holly. Those of us who live here are aware that road is closed in the winter, but the snow bank left by the town plow usually alerts folks from out-of-town. However, the rain had melted the snow, allowing access. One of their vehicles skidded into the ditch, which was actually better than going off the cliff on the other side. AAA was of little help, but neighbors here on our road very kindly responded and rescued the truck on Sunday. There was much celebration and thanksgiving! It seems it might be prudent to have signs on either end indicating the winter closure.
I was pleased to see that the VT Journal extracted considerable information from last week’s Select Board meeting. This publication is becoming a valuable information source for what is happening in Plymouth.
I was able to attend the Yoh Theatre presentation of “The Three Musketeers” on Sunday. It was wonderfully energetic and entertaining. I am not sure if any Plymouth students were involved (I just know the names these days), but of course Marcia Bender is the talented director. Donations for Ukraine were also collected.
Please note that someone from Senior Solutions plans to be at the town hall on Thursday, 3/24 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Residents 60 and older can drop by and learn about 3Sq. VT and fuel assistance (LIHEAP) and other nutrition and assistance programs like Meals on Wheels. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about resources for yourself or others.
