Farmers' Almanac on our Side

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

The 2013 Farmers' Almanac has just hit the stands and here is a summary of November and December in the Northeast. It looks very promising, so I would recommend signing up for your Badge of Honor (aka Sugarbush season pass) before special early-season pass pricing expires on September 12th.

I don't see any references to hornets in the Almanac. But Mike Wing confirmed that they are building high in the trees at the golf course as well in the lift towers.

November 2012

4-7 Unsettled.
8-11 Some snow New EnglandWintry mix Mid-Atlantic.

16-19 Unsettled.
20-23         Snow from Pennsylvania and New York to Maine. Showery across Mid-Atlantic States, then clearing, very cold.

Before the cold and the snows arrive, we have a number of other fun things happening around the resort. On September 27, I hope you will join me and a very talented team from Champlain College to focus on the balance of mind, body, and soul. My wife, Lili, will kick-off the day-long program with morning yoga. Champlain professors will lead a series of  thought-provoking seminars. I will give you a preview of my book about the history and culture of Merrill Lynch that I plan to publish next year. And John Egan will lead some afternoon adventures on the hill before we end with a delightful dinner and beautiful music.

It will be a perfect way to prepare for a long and snowy winter.

So what would you expect a former Executive Vice President of Merrill Lynch to do when he retires? Lay low in the islands? Nope. He moves north and works seven days a week right here at Sugarbush. Check out what he's been thinking.
