Pictures of Vermont

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.

  1. It always breaks my heart to see the people who have lost everything in a natural disaster. I always wonder how they can possibly overcome it. My parents home burned when I was a child so I know it is possible to overcome such disasters but it takes a long time and a lot of work.

  2. I am surprised that so many did not have insurance. I have been in a flood and it can bring you to your knees as you have to start from scratch. It is often amazing how everyone pitches in to help.
    Hope the rains have finally quit.
