Residents in northern New England say the mud patches on gravel roads are far worse than previous years

Residents in northern New England say the mud patches on gravel roads are far worse than previous years and they’re getting stuck in the mud. Georgeann Faller told The Valley News she got stuck in a mud patch near her house in Thetford, Vermont on Wednesday, and again on Friday, and she hasn’t seen roads like this in her seven years living near the border with New Hampshire. Ted Kenyon said he has pulled four cars of the mud with his tractor in South Royalton, Vermont.  March is a notorious month in New England for rain and mud as the snow melts and the ground thaws. Warming temperatures later in April and May dry out the muddy paths. Since Wednesday, local social media groups and community listservs have been full of alerts about roads to avoid.
