    Actually, the weather sucks eighty percent of the time. I would advise against living here. Taxes are off the charts with only minimal advantages in education quality. And if you’re hoping to open a small business here, run away. Fast!

  2. Michael Gannett

    Yes, affordability is an issue for many; yes, there could be more jobs; yes, the weather can be dicey; yes, there are cantankerous, garrulous, growly Vermonters. Guess what? We’re still better off than 99% of our countrymen-n-women, and better off than 99.9% of the rest of the world. There ain’t nothin 100% perfect. Perfection for me is clean air to breathe; enough locally grown food to thrive on; friendly people for the most part, who are neighborly, too; low density in our population; reasonably good healthcare; craftspeople, musicians & others who come to fill the gaps; lots to do in and on our mountains; a beautiful lake to gaze upon and do things around; and – not the least – vistas and sights wherever you turn to make the heart glad. Be happy! There ain’t enough time for us to sad for long. I’ll take Vermont with everything it has to offer and live with the rest!

    those are pretty pictures of vt.i was born here and lived here most of my life.and i still do,in east barre. the taxes are high and roads are crappy. there are more problems with drugs,thanks to the people who can’t and won’t say no. most of the land is posted so fishing and hunting isn’t like it used to be,because of the so called bad hunters who don’t make sure of their target and kill people, not to mention trash the land and trespass without permission. thanks alot. the weather isn’t all peaches and cream but thats the way it is. i’ve been to different places its not perfect there either except florida in the winter months. no complaints there as far as the weather goes at that time. pretty darn hot in the summer thats why i spend my summers in vermont.pretty nice here in the summer and christmas and the fall. i forgot the rise in crime here in vermont,too bad.florida is worse for crime rate. vermont is not like it used to be,thats for sure.but we have people that are trying real hard to keep it beautiful and stay afloat but its not easy and its not perfect but where is the perfect place.i like vt and will always come back after my winter break in florida to her and my kids and grandchildren. i love chelsea its a beautiful peaceful friendly town and so is cabot.

    I don’t mind the weather. I can’t stand places that are too warm. Cool breezes invigorate me. Light rains aliveness me, snow is beautiful and sometimes we use the weather as a good justification to just stay home and chill out. Taxes ar high but it is worth it!!

  6. Tom Young

    Vermont is a retirement state for people that made there money elsewhere, both of my daughters live in Philly because Vt has very little to offer for jobs, a high cost of living ect. They both love Vt but cant afford to live here. Thats why our children are our # 1 export.

  7. Sue Cyr

    VT is Beautiful! Lived there all my life until the last 4 years. Left because of weather and cost of living. I for one could not afford to live there anymore. I find it sad that taxes are so high there. I doubt that will ever change because so many wealthy people have moved there, they don’t mind the taxes and don’t care if others have TO leave because of it. To the person way back who said that who cares if it is red or blue, politics are trash, you are part of the problem. Everyone has to be involved to make change! Politics are the problem! Vermont will eventually be owned by very rich people and the little man, and I am not talking about people who are not working, I am talking about the middle class, will hold on as long as they can to stay there but eventually will be taxed out of the state.

    I’m a retired trucker, therefore no longer in the working class, but would like to comment on living here….I’m in Bennington, and whenever I head to town…and drive onto RT 9…I have to watch for traffic coming off the mountain, and in the last 5 years, I think I had to stop and wait maybe 10 times….for maybe 2 minutes…and once on the road, “many times” I’m by myself…can you imagine that?…nothing behind me…and nothing in front of me.
    Now then, try doing that in Kansas City…or San Diego…Chicago…Denver or ST Paul!!!
    In my 77 years I believe I’ve lived in most major cities at one time or other, and I can attest that Vermont is the easiest…most friendly…trustworthy state government…whereas, you can actually get help from the local city or state government…but in my case, a “town” government…just ask me if I like it here!…”however” it’s not all roses living here…the winters are hard!…this past winter has been terribly cold for a long time…and “very costly”….so if your thinking of moving to Vermont, I’d recommend you doing your homework and maybe vacation here for a bit and talking to a “Vermonter”.

    There are people here, too.

  10. Hiilary

    You could move to MT WHERE IT TAKES 2 and 1/2 years to get a full time job…the pay sucks and its expensive like VT. you get no help from any government out here, You gotta be tough to live here, It is the second highest suicide rate in the USA, Yah..its beautiful but don’t try to fins a place to rent, It isn’t gonna happen and you cant afford it anyways. Nothing is like it used to be. Bozeman is the city of the Beautiful Rich people, It sucks!!!!

  11. Ed Plonski

    iiI love VT. It is beautiful, honest and real. Full of honest and caring people too!

  12. Denise

    A born Londoner, I’ve spent many months and years in Thetford & Ludlow & Cavendish. Vermont is truly a beautiful state, a little hidden treasure that not too many people are aware of.. Now that I have moved back to my homeland i do truly miss this majestic state. I stare in awe at the landscape, the mountains and the lakes. Miss hiking the. long Trail, getting my ice cream at Ben and Jerry’s, walking down by Lake Champlain. I even miss the long white winters, de-icing the whole car and not just the windows, hours of shoveling the driveway, spending a long time putting on the many layers of clothing during those long winter months. Most of all, I miss my friends, some born Vermonters, though many born outside of the state and country. Don’t change Vermont..
