HelloHello @HelloHello
Kennedy @Kennedy

I'm fine. I got a lot of rain and some very minor moisture in the basement (old fieldstone foundation). I bought an industrial fan last year and it's awesome (and I'm running a dehumidifier). That's kind of what I have to do in the summer, anyway.

I won't flood here. Even during Irene (the 'big one') this house didn't flood. The brook across the road did rise, and I'm sure that there are some low lying homes that had problems. And there is a trailer park in town that was evacuated (I think the homes were okay, but they were. um. surrounded). For the most part, damage around here is to roads and basements. But those roads are back in the mountains (one or another of them, we're surrounded by mountains). Some of those are washed out (probably a lot of them). All down the mountains, those roads will run along rivers and they will just collapse.

We're getting more rain in the next few days and that will be terrible for my property (I have old stone walls that will fall and I will cry......they've been up for 100 years. To replace them would cost 10's of thousands). I'll have to knock them down and do something - that won't cost 10's of thousands :(.

And the rain ruined my berry crop (well, not ruin - but did impact it a lot). Very little fruit for me this winter :(. No apples, no peaches, and now not nearly enough berries. Pooh.

The damage here was mid-state and up in the capital (and on a side note if I hear one more newsperson mispronounce the capital. Jeepers. It's the capital!). And for the Vermont Country Store fans - I hear Weston is a disaster (where their flagship store is).

Vermont towns - and our one city, we have one - are built on rivers and streams (the town centers all pretty much have water - built around mills that used the water for factories) - and that makes it really hard with these events. I understand the boats at the Marina have now collected (the docks came loose and they headed down the Connecticut River) under a bridge - so perhaps they can be recovered?

During Irene, the town itself flooded. But this really didn't hit us, so there were a few bridges closed for a time, but they are open now :)
