Sorry folks, I probably won't be able to post anything beautiful for a couple of days. Hurricane Irene hit Vermont pretty hard. I have driven to the next town to use the internet because I have no phone or electricity right now.
But when I saw the damage elsewhere, I felt grateful to get off so lightly. It made me cry this morning, driving through Woodstock and Quechee. Covered bridges gone, houses washed away, roads carved down ten feet.... I took lots of pictures but won't be able to get them up until I get power back.
Actually, I've gotten a lot of handwork done because I have been stuck indoors with no power. Artwork kept my mind from going bonkers. Better than pacing the floor, wringing my hands.
