Hurricane Irene

Our trip to Vermont brought back memories of Hurricane Irene.

There was way more destruction than I imagined. When visiting Woodstock, the historian at the Woodstock Inn told us that 4feet of water came rushing through the ground floor doors similar to the scene in titanic. The inn was closed for over a month to repair the damage on the first floor and the golf course.

During a drive to Killington we saw what looked to be spots where covered bridges once were located. Temporary bridges have now been built next to spots that once had iconic Vermont covered bridges.

Businesses have been closed for months during one of their most busy seasons.

When thinking back to the Jersey Shore evacuations - I still remember the uncertain feeling of what was going to happen to our beaches. It was crazy to return to the beach to find very limited damage.

We had a really nice time in Vermont. I strongly recommend a winter visit to woodstock to enjoy all that the area has to offer.
