People get Shorter During Snowstorms
the many Vermont winters which I have experienced, I have
noticed a definite increase in the phenomena of people
getting shorter during and after snowstorms. This subject
can only be investigated in a general manner as everyone
has a different "APE RATIO",
just like we all have different fingerprints. For the
subject at hand we will look at only a few measurements.
As a 70 year old woman my measurements are 20 - 40 - 70.
Where 20 is the height to my knees, 40 the height to my
waist, and 70 my total height. Therefore the height of my
knees is 29% of my total height and the height of my
waist is 57%.
MAILBOX DEMOLITION CONTEST RESULTS
Once again it is time for the results of this past winter's Mailbox Demolition contest. This annual event is scored and judged by the Beartown Road Commisioner. This year there were 3 plow routes, one for each of the road crew. Not all routes had the same number of mailboxes so the amount of total damage is a very important factor in the final scores. A mailbox has to be found once the snow has melted to determine the score; a missing mailbox is not tallied.
once again Levi wins the coveted trophy of a gold plated
(gold spray paint) mailbox proving that his 32 years of
snowplowing experience really pays off. He attributes
this year's win to not wearing his glasses during any of
