Week ending - Sep 4, 2011

Everyone is probably happy to say goodbye Irene! The Hurricane made its way up the east coast, hit Manhattan and Vermont head on. The damage to Vermont is going to take a long time to recover from. Western MA was also hit significantly with flood damage. Most of our area sustained wind damage and lasting electricity outages.
