- Sunny day, cloudy night: We'll be getting some more sun today. According to the National Weather Service we can expect sunny skies with a high near 37 degrees. Increasing clouds tonight with a low around 22.
- New Year of the Trees: Burlington's Temple Shalom Emeth is hosting a Tu Bishvat Seder at 6:30 p.m. this evening. Come celebrate the Jewish New Year of the Trees, the Jewish Earth Day, with members of the community. Eat and drink all during this fun music service which takes place in the Social Hall.

- Quilting: The Burlington Public Library is hosting the Quilt Club today from 10 a.m. to noon. The group is open to anyone and is for people who love quilting and want to share ideas with friends.
- Live music: Mount Hope Christian Center is hosting a musical performance at the Music Cafe @ the Common Grounds. Mark Kroos will headline the show. Everyone 18+ is invited and the cost of tickets is $8. Visit Mounthope.org for more information.
- Go Pats!: On this day in 2002, the New England Patriots won its first Super Bowl championship thanks to a last-second 48-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri. It was a memorable game for many, as it was held under extensive security (as a precaution after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks) and Pres. George Bush conducted the coin toss. Singer Mariah Carey belted out the anthem, and supergroup U2 performed at half-time.
