#BTV Folks: The bike/running path around the lake is beautiful and a great place to get fresh air. However, we need to have a discussion about social distancing on the path, especially non-runners/bikers.

- Street Pavement Condition
I made a post that North Union was full of rough potholes. A "Burlington maintenance worker" commented that the holes had been fixed and "closed" the post.
This is not at all correct. I love BPW, but I dont know why they did that to my post. The street is in pretty rough shape and hasnt had any patches since last year.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
The idea of a God we infer from our experimental dependence on something superior to ourselves in wisdom, power and goodness, which we call God; our senses discover to us the works of God which we call nature, and which is a manifest demonstration of his invisible essence. Thus it is from the works of nature that we deduce the knowledge of a God, and not because we have, or can have any immediate knowledge of, or revelation from him.
