Home, Bittersweet Home: Devastation in Woodstock, VT

Well, looks like we chose the right week to be away... Just down the hill from our home, all roads and buildings in the lowlands have been devastated. We hear from neighbors that everything up on the hill is ok aside from no electricity or water.

The little Ottauquechee River which runs through Woodstock normally averages 2' deep and crested around 20'. Here are some photos and videos taken by friends and neighbors.
