Thanks Sheldon.  Maybe you can come up and enjoy Orange County soon!

Thank you Lori.  I know you read this every weekend.

If you have to live in it Joe you have to get outside sometime.

Carole this is the hotel at West Point.  It is beautiful there.  I had the opportunity to spend a day there when I was in the Leadership Orange program.

That is so cool Jennifer.  I wanted to say once again what a pleasure it was to meet you at RainCamp.

The Warwick Winery is great! What about the little ice cream shop on the top of the mountain?! ...Ok, it's a bit chilly for that.

Great post, mechanically speaking, as well!

All the best!

We are having a mix of sleet and rain here.  Snow is mostly gone.  Your location - slightly north and west seems to make for a more wintery rather than rainy weather.  But I like winter sports.  I also do a lot of hiking in my Yak trax. Love the list - all sorts of activities out there!!!

Thanks Brian.  Warwick is a nice village.  It really is not ice cream time but I could be convinced, lol

Thank you Debe That means a lot from you.

If the deal makes sense, the cash will follow.

I have no earthly idea why this is a featured post, but congrats on that! Weather sure is a crazy thing!

Thanks Steve

Well most of the time I do too Christine.

Aaron I have to let you know that I was surprised this was featured but I do this service every weekend and have gotten many contacts and leads from it.  If you don't understand the power of Localism then you are missing a huge value of the Rain.  I looked at your blog and have to say you need to tone back the advertising and focus on the content.  Good luck and thanks for the complement anyway

Paddy, Congrats on the feature. Lots of good suggestions for things to do in the area. Unfortunately, there was too much football to watch for me to take advantage.
