    Looks like it should be done and cleaned-up by then.

    Actually, they are calling for snow to come back in on saturday, from down here in Ct to up there. Not what we want.

    With the latest snow we got and the upcoming (southern area) storm on Saturday, wondering if this is still a good idea.
    Opinions??

    local forecast here as of really early friday morning (2am) says 'snow from late morning on' for saturday....

    i'm thinking a re-schedule would be best.

    I'll be there come "hell or high water" my schedule is less flexable so either way I will be going this saturday. I hope the weather people are wrong...and if they are right...the roads will be in good shape. I have never seen Vermont roads in poor shape and as an ex-snowmobiler I have LOTS of time driving in snowy conditions. . I hope my post does not offend...

    Watched that too brian. Would not be a fun drive coming back. ANd they are predicting snow all the way up into VT. Guys, Im not coming up alone. You can still do the tur, or reschedule. Im sure VT Pellets can hook up us CT guys when the weather is more conducive, and maybe we can get J Takeman to join us on another date.

    Though the weather is not ideal from the south, northern areas don't seem to be bad enough. I will be at my parents house with less than an hour away from the plant, so final decision will not be made till the AM. But at this time it’s a go for me.
