    One of the nice things about Saturday (besides the amazing conditions) was that you could tell the Stowe regulars from the occasional visitors. That wasn't even remotely cold. Maybe a tad chilly. ...

    What's wrong with "Tippecanoe"? Where is it?

    FYI, "Tippecanoe" is not pronounced like "tippy canoe", it's pronounced like "tip a canoe". At least that's how my history teacher pronounced it.
