Woodstock, Post Irene Update 9/10/11

Progress, progress and more progress….. Well, it is a beautiful early September day, (the air is giving us a little teaser of coolness, that tells us fall is knocking on our door!)  The most significant progress to report is about Roads.  The state has given the following updates…..Route 9 is open.  Route 103 between Rockingham and Rutland is open.  Route 11 between Chester and Manchester is open.  Route 4 between Woodstock and Rutland will be open by next week-end! Now, travel on all of these roads, may be a bit slow at times, and are probably gravel covered, but most important is the fact roads are opening.  It is a big, big deal about Route 4.  This means from Interstate 89 through Woodstock, Bridgewater, and Killington travel can be done on Route 4.  All of the information we are getting from the state and local government is that Vermont will be ready for all leaf-peepers.  So get ready for some great color.

The Art Festival on the Green is happening as I type.  I want to wander down now, but Bob says I have to do my chores first!  I think I will persuade Bob, to buy me lunch, while on the Green.  Today is picture perfect for weddings, in fact, a local couple Kate and Steve, have their wedding guests staying with us this week-end, so we wish them well.  Couldn’t ask for a better day, or better place to tie the knot.  Restaurants, and shops are open in full swing.

So as you can see, things are coming back and humming along.  It looks like this week is going to have to include some Pumpkin, gourds and mum shopping!  Hope everyone has a wonderful week-end.

Oh, on a lighter note,  yesterday I decided to check my vegetable garden.  I readily admit I hadn’t checked it, since Irene invited herself to Vermont.  Obviously, my squash liked her visit……Check it out.
