Three Seasons in One Day

I work at a nonprofit organization on the side of a mountain, a fairly large mountain for Vermont. It’s roughly 3,800 feet or so high, and therefore the weather can be a bit different. In the winter we’ll have pelting snow, while my home in the river valley 30 minutes away has sloppy, sploshes of rain.

You wouldn’t believe it, but yesterday we began the day with dark dreary rain clouds, heavy downpours, late morning sunshine, and then a mix of rain and sleet in the afternoon. By the time I went home the clouds were pushing away and the sun was peeking through again.

In one day we had Spring, Fall, and Winter. In fact, we had all of those seasons within a few hours.
