Way back this summer when Hurricane Irene pretty much missed Hartford and gave southern Connecticut a big kick, most were surprised to hear that the storm hit Vermont harder than anywhere else. Not known as a hurricane hotbed, the landlocked state flooded from the heavy rains and saw incredible damage.
These photos were taken a month after the storm. We can attest that even in November, over two months after Irene, roads and bridges were washed out and life was far from normal. But being Vermont, there wasn't much complaining to be heard. Vermonters just kind of make do.
You can get a lot of different views from a lot of different angles in Vermont. Almost all of them are pleasing to the eye.
