Vermont is very pretty. Living in the ADK's of Ny, Vermont is always right there for trips. Its a very scenic and pleasant 2 hour ride to Burlington from my area. That includes the Grand Isle Ferry across Lake Champlain. Burlington is always a lot of fun.
Everyone is aware of the fact that every individual state has its own style and character, and Vermont is no different. Vermont is a very rare place. I dont mean to sound condescending, truly not my intention. Vermonters are simple, hard working, intelligent people. Vermont almost seems more like Canada or a European country than a US state. Hard to explain unless you spend some time there.
My whole point is, If there is one place that can handle this kind of catastrophe, its Vermont. They will bounce back fast, and with all the improvements necessary to minimize this kind of damage in the future.
