Last week in our lead story about Skiing at Tolman Pond, there was reference to the “The Bomber,” a 1959 Bombardier snow cat that factored into the operation. We have since learned that the Bomber is still with us. It was restored by Kirk Dale and made an appearance at the Dublin Gas Engine Meet. Here you see a picture from the 1970’s.
Mouse over or tap the image to see the amazing revitalized machine (thanks to Lisa Sieverts for the photo).

We’ve noted before that there are a number of young people who, having grown up in Nelson, have decided to stay (or sometimes return) here – making this their home. Jess Hutchins is one of those folks, and her story is inspiring: she’s a jewelry crafter, a photographer, and a musician – among other things. We’re delighted to add her to our growing list of profiles.
Cooking in Nelson isn’t what it used to be! This is probably a good thing. Susan Peery explored the Nelson Cookbook (compiled by Parke Struthers in the 1950s) and came across some recipes which are well worth reading, though you may want to stop there.
