By the time Hurricane Irene hit Vermont, it was considered to be a tropical storm but it dropped so much rain that it had a huge impact on parts of our state. On my way to Woodstock by way of Route 4, I passed these signs of the destruction. These pics were taken today. 9/25/11

We were very lucky to have not had any damage from the storm. I am glad that I was finally able to see what the storm actually did. You can hear it and see it on the news but until you see it , it is hard to really understand the impact of it all. I am amazed that more people were not killed. The water carved such huge swaths through the valleys. A lot of road crews etc are still hard at work trying to repair the damage. I think the impacts will be seen for quite a while.
Have a good one,
