    My home state has suffered the worst natural disaster since 1927. Many areas are devastated. My hometown has (had) 45 bridges. All 45 are either damaged or destroyed. Parts of the downtown were flooded. All roads out of town to the north were cut, all roads to the south were also cut, the only road to the west over the mountains - gone. Only 1 road, up over a mountain to the east remains open. And, many other towns and villages have it much worse.
    Vermont has been very good to the gay community. The first state to pass Civil Unions, the first state legislature to pass marriage equality with out being forces to by a court.
    If anyone wishes to help, here is a link.

    given the unusual weather patterns tha the whole continent has experienced as of late; there is no place in the USA that i would live in and not purchase flood insurance.

    I am sure sorry to see what has happened up in Vermont, My daughter lives between Vermont and New York, so I've been up there several times and I hate to think of all the destruction. I hope the rebuilding process take place quickly. Wish you all the best in a quick recovery !

    Bristol did OK. There were some road washouts, but nothing too serious. Neighboring towns were not as lucky however. Most towns south and east of Bristol, had major destruction.

    Wow that's horrible. I'm sure there will be some crazies saying that it's the "judgments".
