Mud Season in Vermont

The vlog gives an overview of mud season in Vermont. It occurs in varying degrees each year. There is another video shot by another person and is a good representation of mud season, very similar to what we are experiencing on our road. It is on the bottom of this post.

  1. So during springtime (march april) never car wash? have to wait till may then do car wash? hahaha, wow, lots of mud. In Alaska, 90 percents never wash cars or truck, always dirt again next day. Have a great day.

    • We wash and it does get dirty the next day. It is necessary to wash from time to time to get mud and salt out from under the car.

  2. Hello Phil – Found your site and it’s good to see you! You may or may not remember me as I was one of Nancy’s close friends. I enjoyed your insights about Vermont and that was a good capture of the Barred Owl. Today, here in Helsinki, Finland (Yes, I moved here to get away from US of A, sadly.) I captured a shot of Brown Hare (also known as Euro Hare). Here’s some info about this hare… By the way, loved the boxing part! Anyway, don’t stop vlogging, okay? Warmest, Darren…

    The European Hare or Brown Hare (Lepus europaeus) is a species of hare native to northern, central, and western Europe and western Asia.

    It is a mammal adapted to temperate open country. It is related to the similarly appearing rabbit, which is in the same family but a different genus. It breeds on the ground rather than in a burrow and relies on speed to escape.

    It is larger, longer-eared, and longer-legged than a rabbit. It has a body size of 50-70 cm and a tail length of 7-11 cm. The weight for a full-grown adult ranges from 2.5 to 6.5 kg. It can run at speeds of up to 70 km/h (45 mi/h). It is strictly herbivorous. It eats grasses and herbs during the summer months but changes to feeding on twigs, bark, and the buds of young trees in winter, making it a pest to orchard farmers.

    Normally shy animals, hares change their behavior in spring, when they can be seen in broad daylight chasing one another around meadows. During this spring frenzy, hares can be seen “boxing”. This is where hares strike one another with their paws. For a long time it had been thought that this was inter-male competition, but closer observation has revealed that it is usually a female hitting a male, either to show that she is not yet quite ready to mate or as a test of his determination.

    The hare is declining in Europe due to changes in farming practices. Its natural predators include the Golden Eagle and carnivorous mammals like the Red Fox and Wolf.

  3. Phil:

    I love your vlogs- they are welcome breaks from all the intense vlogs and blogs out there! There’s something folksy about your topics about the great State of Vermont that beckons me back! Amazing that when I worked with you before, it was usually related to complex, technological and business issues and now you are explaining about very simple things that we take for granted. It is refreshing to see that you are doing this!

    Thank you!
