What a beautiful Vermont day! Warm temperatures, a nice breeze and sunny skies. After a possible accumulation of 14 inches of rain, we are digging out. The community has pulled together to help those who have lost so much. the Stratton Foundation has raised over $100,000 in funds to go strictly for Irene Disaster Relief. The roads to our office had been badly compromised but walking today I was so impressed with the progress. The bridge to the East of Starting Gate looks like it could open this weekend.
If you look carefully, someone has injected a bit of humor as well. To the west of our office , Route 20 was washed out at least 100 yards, now there is only s small gap where a new culvert is being installed, a rough road with gravel to road level is already in place. I think it could be open by next week.
Everyone has shown courage and a sense of humor.
