Vermont Tourists, Wanted

As I'm sure you are aware Vermont in certain places has been hit very hard by the remnants of Irene. The flooding while not an issue in some parts was particularly severe in other areas of the State see http://vielmetti.typepad.com/vacuum/2011/08/2011-vermont-flood-maps-irene.html.

The major news agencies did a great job of telling the story of destruction. What the news agencies are not telling people is that here in Vermont as well neighboring states is that roads are being returned to service very quickly.

Vermont is one state that is very dependent on Tourism as part of it's economic well being. So visit us today http://www.vermontvacation.com/.

I was at Bald Hill Pond yesterday in Westmore, VT briefly. The foliage is starting to perk up nicely with the lake as a super reflecting pool see:

From the parking area there are several miles of trails to hike. If some one wishes to get out and stretch their legs in truly rural Vermont. It's a great place.

My girlfriend and I ALWAYS find time to drive up from Springfield MA around this time of the year to visit Manchester and the VT Country Store. I can tell when it's Fall, because we're cleaning out the chimney and our wood stove and get to splitting and stacking firewood.

That being said, I heard on NECN that it has already SNOWED up in New Hampshire!! Its a rather rare event to have a measurable snowfall in September...looks like we're in for a another good 'ole fashioned new england winter! Bring it! LOL!
