...and the rain continues. Vermont is dangerously drenched, yet again.
The outlook for VT's fall season is dismal. Damaged roads, inns, and bridges = a potentially bad leaf peeping season. (According to state officials, VT is determined to get roads open for Fall Foliage.) Want to do something kind? Plan a trip to VT. Or, like this plucky, saintly upstart on Main Street in Bennington, start a lemonade stand to help others. (Isn't she the sweetest?!)
Still, morale here is high, mostly because we've been lucky to avoid major damage - just a few leaky skylights and a wet basement. The sunflowers are enormous this year, and with the weight of the water and their giant heads, unable to support themselves - they look like shower fixtures.
