Harris Hill Ski Jump Set For February 17-18. 2018 in Brattleboro

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — Some of the world’s best up-and-coming ski jumpers are set to fly at New England’s only Olympic-size venue Feb. 17-18 during the annual Harris Hill tournament in Brattleboro, Vt.

The nearly century-old competition will feature athletes from North America and Europe leaping off a 90-meter hill that’s one of just six of its size in the country.

Since its start in 1922, the annual event attracts several thousand spectators who watch jumpers shoot at speeds of 60 mph before soaring more than 300 feet in the air.

Talking Global Warming in 1955

I’ve been reading Eric Sloane’s Almanac and Weather Forecaster ever since I found it at a yard sale last summer, one chapter a week in accordance with the calendar.  Sloane is a New England writer whose books feature wonderful, detailed pen and ink drawings of rural life in days gone by.  His weather almanac consists of bits of weather lore, stories of country life, and musings on the actual workings of weather and the seasons.  It’s the perfect casual read for a weather enthusiast, full of proverbs and fun facts.  

I’d been enjoying it right along, feeling a false sense of nostalgia for a time I never knew, when I hit a paragraph that didn’t seem quite so dated.  The topic?  Climate change.  Here’s an excerpt from the entry for the third week of January:
