There are a some photographs of Vermont's recent visit from Irene to see at http://mansfieldheliflight.com/flood/.
There are still a number of schools that have not been able to open because of washed out roads. The piles of soggy stuff outside people's homes is just heart breaking to me. Of course, most Vermont towns are located along rivers through mountain valleys but few of us ever thought to purchase flood insurance. It's a sad situation.
