Goodnight, Irene!

Hurricane Irene was downgraded to a tropical storm by the time she blew through Bellows Falls VT. A lot of flooding occurred in southern Vermont towns with all the rainwater causing otherwise serene brooks and rivers to overflow.

At a calm point in the storm, Pipkin hopped through town to see how Bellows Falls fared. Luckily the town did not suffer any major damage. There were some branches and trees down, but even with high water levels, there was no flooding.





The rain started to pick up again as Pipkin hopped by the Vilas Bridge. The rain and wind is supposed to continue through the evening, so Pipkin's going to head back home and hunker down for the rest of the night. Goodnight, Irene!
