Dartmouth football coach Buddy Teevens is a huge believer in Big Green athletes supporting other teams so the football team's turnout for yesterday's volleyball game at Leede Arena and the noise the team generated shouldn't be a surprise ;-)Dartmouth posted a 3-1 win (25-20, 23-25, 25-16, 25-22) over New Hampshire with the football players cheering them on.
For outdoor contests, fully vaccinated attendees will not need to mask or physical distance, but unvaccinated attendees should wear masks and physical distance.
Dartmouth's mask policy, updated Sept. 3, can be found HERE.
While Dartmouth football still has a week to go until it opens the season you can catch some Big Green action at 1 p.m. today when the men's "Rugby Football Club" plays host to Holy Cross. Watch a livestream of the action HERE.
Each spring I pull 11 long windows out of the sun room in our Vermont hillside house and replace them with screens. Yesterday I pulled the screens out and replaced them with the windows I lugged up from the basement.
The first two years we lived here I waited until later in the fall to make the change, clinging to summer and thinking there would still be occasional warm days when it would be enjoyable to sit out in the screened room. There were. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that we could use the unheated room more in the fall – and keep the French doors opening into the room open longer – if the windows were in and the sun had more of a chance to warm the room up.
I was just down there and on a morning when the temperature was 44 degrees during my hike the sun has started to do its thing warming the dark gray stone floor. I'm happy to report the sun room is a lot more pleasant than it would be if a breeze were blowing through the screens.
