Finding fun in foul weather

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Welcome to summer in Vermont, where instead of bikinis on the beach, it's rain coats. But what are Vermonters great at doing? Adapting. Even those visiting Vermont are making the best of this soggy weather.

A biker group we spotted in Burlington hopes its new nickname is temporary. The so-called Foolish Clan is on a 16-hour ride. Their stop in Burlington is just part of a trip from Bar Harbor, Maine, to Ontario-- all in the pouring rain.

Other folks got out of the rain and headed to the lanes. Spare Time in Colchester was packed with kids and families who say the weather is striking out.

"It's summer so I wish it was sunny, but I'd rather not have snow. I'd rather have rain instead of snow or sleet," said Anaya Morales, 10.

Anaya bowled with her fellow Maple Street Summer Campers.

"You make the best of it, you know?!" said Jodi Reynolds of Jodi's Day Care in Colchester.

Just a few lanes up, Reynolds and her day care kids were also having some family friendly fun.

"With the rain we've been stuck inside and there's nothing worse than being stuck inside on school vacation," Reynolds said.

It's beyond bowling here at Spare Time, with people dancing their rain blues away.

"They didn't learn those moves from me!" Reynolds said.

Back outside, the Foolish Clan hopes the thunder of their engines is all they hear as they head home.
