Ayeh. But the Feds will kick in "Disaster $$" so "we" pay instead of just "you"!!What a State!! Our biggest industries are ice cream, coffee and teddy bears. What a stable economy we have up here. Don't forget our famous Maple Syrup. Our infrastructure has been neglected for decades, and it's finally come back to bite Vermont!! Many of these towns over the years could of gotten new Bridges and road upgrades, but opted to keep these old structures cause they're old and pristine. Now there are paying the price and it'll be a very long time to repair.
Thank you, other 49 states, for helping rebuild those covered bridges. We'll make fotos available of the new structures when they are completed. Hopefully we'll recover all the ones we lost in the storm.Ayeh. But the Feds will kick in "Disaster $$" so "we" pay instead of just "you"!!
PapajamGiven the sporadic phone service after the hurricane (we had no service for 3 days), I just now got to speak with the bodyshop since before the hurricane. It seems some enterprising individual thought it would be a good idea to close the flood gates downstream of the bodyshop, which is located right on the river. So of course, the water could not flow upstream of the flood gates. The water level in the shop reached 4 feet. Extensive damage to many vehicles and equipment. Luckily, the 71 GTV was on a lift and stayed dry but the 68 GTV was completely submerged. I'm told that the 71s engine was lifted out of harms way but do not know the status of any of the other hard parts which were being stored at ground level. Will make the trip down there tomorrow to assess the damage.
Yeah, crap luck. One stolen, then one flooded and the parts for a third in unknown condition.What luck
