It is amazing what 12 to 18 inches of water in 24 hours can do. As I have said many times when it comes to flooding your elevation above MSL is not as important as your elevation in regards to the nearest body of water.
I assume most Vermonters do not have flood insurance?

vehicles, boats and 4x4 ATV's were useless against the power of water.
it will be a while before we are back up & running, check out these photos
I feel this is another good point for not having caches of gear stored, like I have seen mentioned so many times before on this forum

Seems (at least in the TeeVee story) that the crews had their lives threatened by customers who were pissed the power wasn't back on the next day....
Was the TeeVee story slandering the Granite Staters? Or has everyone, even in small town Vt become a "I want it NOW" whiner?
