I thought it was fitting that he was sporting a Red Sox shirt...true New Englander
The devastation from Hurricane Irene is hitting pretty close to home, and by home, I mean my home town. The town where my Dad grew up (Brattleboro, Vermont) hosted the Today Show yesterday morning - I never thought I would see the day that the Today Show would be reporting live from Brattleboro, VT...so tragic.
They have never seen anything like it and I hope for all those involved that they never do again. The damage is obscene, there are massive roads just gone, for those that haven't driven on them, you wouldn't believe a road used to exist there, where now it appears as though the river has taken up residence.
Water is covering stop signs in some areas. My Parents are safe and dry, but they are the lucky ones. It seems as though the storm dealt a very inconsistent hand as it went up the East Coast, my Parents are fine, my friends in parts of Northampton are fine, yet just down the street from both of them, the roads are completely flooded, major roads are gone and you see cars floating down the "street".
