It’s been a tough year weather-wise all over Vermont. Last summer was nearly rainless and this winter’s weather has roller-coastered from snow in abundance to the two most dreaded weather words in winter—wintry mix.
For the uninitiated, wintry mix combines snow, snow crystals that look and act like tiny styrofoam balls, sleet, rain and, best of all, freezing rain. In other words, hell in the form of precipitation.
The folks in Carding, like everyone else in Vermont, are not happy about it. Tomorrow, let’s look in on the customers coming in the front door of the Crow Town Bakery to catch up on the latest, shall we?
Welcome to Carding, Vermont where life always includes a dash of the unexpected. Carding is the small town (population 3,700 or so) that no one can seem to find on a map of the Green Mountain State. But you can find it any time, right here in the Carding Chronicles and in the four novels of Carding, Vermont, The Road Unsalted, Thieves of Fire, The Dazzling Uncertainty of Life, and Lights in Water, Dancing.
If you haven’t already, don’t forget to subscribe to the Chronicle by clicking the link on this page. That way, you’ll never miss a story.
Hope to see you tomorrow.
