Planning a Ski Trip In New England – Be Sure The B & B Has A Wood Stove

Having been a New England native all of my life one would think that I’d be used to our extreme winter weather.  Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Unless the temperature goes over 60 degrees, I wear my North Face all year long.

As I mature I find my body becoming less tolerant of the dampness and cold.  When the autumn winds come around and the leaves start turning, it isn’t unusual to see tweens and teenagers walking to school without jackets or sweaters.  Many are even wearing shorts or cutoffs!

When my children were younger, I sounded like a broken record (for those of us who still remember what vinyl records are!) reminding them to bundle up, wear a sweater, jacket, or take their raincoat to school.  My kids would turn a deaf ear, as kids so often do.

Fast forward as the situation changed and my children became teenagers and college students.  High school, college campuses and the associated peer pressure on teenagers influence their clothing choices. All of a sudden their birthday and Christmas lists started to include the latest in outerwear in every choice of color.

Clotheslineimg_7479My charming son-in-law is originally from Vermont, and that means frequent trips up north visiting his family, taking in the scenery and checking out Vermont country stores.  My son-in-law’s niece was born on Saint Patrick’s Day and I went up for the birthday party.  His parent’s house had snow all the way up to the top of their clothesline!  I make sure the Bed and Breakfast Inn has a Vermont Castings wood stove!

While I luv the in-laws dearly, I wish they lived in a more tropical climate!vermontcoveredbridge1213_02_20_prev1

Thought I’d share some winter photos of New England for my readers who live in warmer climates!  Enjoy!

  1. I am just making the rounds to SlogBite member sites and using SlogBite’s new game to make the site choices for me, and this time your site was chosen. If you haven’t tried it you really should give it whirl. http://www.slogbite.com/particpant-features/slog-machine

    BTW, I am in the process of making the SlogBite categories even more granular. I want to enable SB members to create an accurate profile of their site using the SB categories to show off their best work. Therefore, if you have the time, please let me know what additional categories you would join if I created them. You can, and should get very specific. Take a look at SB’s category list and leave a comment as to what else you would like to see. http://www.slogbite.com/joining-slogbite/category-list

  2. I’m always in awe looking at some kids wearing flip flops when there’s snow on the ground! I guess you don’t have to bundle up if you’re driving a car and you’re just outside for a few minutes. When I’m in New York City though, I don’t see anyone wearing shorts – everyone’s wearing they’re winter gear since they have to wait in the cold for buses, trains and they’re morning coffee :)

  3. Hi Anne ~ Thanks for stopping by ~ guess my blood thins as I get older ~ I don’t get to NYC as often as I’d like to! :-)

  4. I’m not a fan of temperatures lower than 60 degrees. But I do miss the snow, that is if I can just sit back and enjoy it, or play in it. The photos are lovely!
