The Thicket passes on news of a very sarcastic proclamation from Montpelier, prompted by a 2008 blizzard that closed down the Legislature in next-door New Hampshire:
Whereas, while the New Hampshire General Court was forsaking the majestic halls of the state house in Concord, the Vermont General Assembly learning of a not dissimilar weather forecast for the Green Mountain State rolled up its law-making sleeves and continued to perform its legislative duties, and
Whereas, the fortitude and moral fiber of the Green Mountain Boys endures in the members of the Vermont General Assembly in contrast to the actions of their colleagues on the Connecticut River’s eastern bank, now therefore be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:
That the General Assembly wishes the members of the New Hampshire General Court a comfy snooze on a typical northern New England day...
I'd hate to find out what Vermont thinks of us weather wimps in Massachusetts.
