…WARMEST FINISH OF ANY YEAR IN BOSTON…

…WARMEST DECEMBER AND WARMEST NOVEMBER-DECEMBER COMBINATION RECORDED AT BOSTON/S LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT…

However, drive north for 3 1/2 hours, and finally: snow. Mt. Mansfield appearing on the horizon, looking as if it had been dusted with powdered sugar. Riding over fresh powder, cherishing every turn, relishing this bizarre first glimpse of winter. Observing people at the end of a run: groups of college boys in baggy pants regrouping and tinkering with their boards; a lanky man on skis coming to a stop, exlaiming, ” I didn’t fall once!” to a woman who greets him with a kiss.
