Well, between earthquakes and hurricanes, last week was a tough one for the East Coast…and particularly for Vermont. Over two hundred roads suffered severe damage. And it was only a tropical storm!!! This one is outside of Rutland on Route 4 and the way we go across state to Hanover, New Hampshire or to our favorite restaurant, Simon Pearce, whose kitchens and shops were flooded. It is so sad all around us, but the spirit of the people of this state is indomitable and everywhere people are helping their neighbors, cleaning up and helping their neighbors. It is wonderful to see. We stayed high and dry, but took precautions at the studio and put all of the works on paper up high. It was a hard afternoon’s work for us because some of them are quite large (7 feet) and heavy. But thanks to a good friend, Bill Muench, a teacher at Burr and Burton Academy, we will have a crew of three to help put everything safely away on Saturday. We are soooo grateful!!
And we are grateful that the storm was not worse and that out beautiful state aims to be back in shape by “leaf-peeping” season
