Rainy, With a Chance of Snow

It has been a long, very long past 10 days. Papers, a memo, lots of reading and so many hours in the library that at times I wonder if I should be paying rent there instead of at my apartment. Plus, the weather has been pretty terrible. It has been snowing in the mountains which is great news for ski season, but just raining cats and dogs here in South Royalton. I’d much prefer some snow at this point, I feel like if it is going to be this cold, it should be snowing. I’m sure the peanut gallery would disagree and when it is still snowing in March or April, you can point me to this post and laugh in my face.

The light at the end of the tunnel for this week is a field trip to Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park. Our Professor for Natural Resources Law is taking us for his “Annual Optional Field Trip” to this local National Historical Park, in Woodstock, Vermont. Professor Czarnezki has lined up a guided tour with Ed Sharron of the National Park Service. It should a pretty neat way to put all of the case law and statutes we’ve been reading so far into context. Plus, it is wonderful to get out of the classroom for a bit and to get to see another part of this great state I’m calling home for the year.

If you don’t know anything about Marsh-Billing-Rockefeller National Historical Park here is some information straight from Professor Czarnezki’s email to the class about the field trip: ” “Walk through one of Vermont’s most beautiful landscapes, under the shade of sugar maples and 400-year-old hemlocks, across covered bridges and alongside rambling stone walls….Nestled among the rolling hills and pastures of eastern-central Vermont, the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is the only national park to tell the story of conservation history and the evolving nature of land stewardship in America.” For more information, check out the web site here, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park

Maybe the guided tour will be in the snow (fingers crossed as it would make for better pictures) but at this point, it’s looking like it will be in the rain. Cold, blustery rain, but hey, we’ll be having a good time so no complaints here!
