Cloud Shadows from Middle Road

Hard to believe, on a beautiful afternoon like this one, that just two days ago Hurricane Irene turned Vermont's hills into brooks, brooks into rivers, and rivers into raging floods.

Many thanks to all who wrote to check in--we're fine up here on our hill, but homes, stores, bridges and roads from the top to the bottom of the state have been damaged or lost. Fortunately, Vermonters are good at pulling together and rebuilding. And thank you again for your concern!
