I took my children for a drive after work today so that they could see just how fortunate we are and to give an eye opener on what struggles and hardships people go through even in our own town.

Seems people in many places are dealing with floods - here we're suffering a drought; I wish Mother Nature would spread things around a bit.

Your photos certainly show the misery flooding can bring - great job on the photography, but sorry your area is suffering this stuff.

Vermont was hit by a series of snow storms late in the season and more recently consistent rain showers. The photos are taken right off Lake Champlain. Beautiful area but very sad indeed.

@Sailor -I'd be happy to ship some of this your way to even things out.

It truly is terrible, we have been fortunate that no lives have been lost. A numerous number of our highways and roads are corroded or severely flooded. I will be out this weekend to explore further and will add more photos when I get the chance. Vermont (as I am sure many other states as well) is currently under 'state of emergency' as a result. We have hit an all time record.

I wish you all the best with your own weather related incidents. Remember it could always be worse. Record 312 Tornadoes In One Day | WASHINGTON, D.C.

I spent much of my youth around Montpelier / Middlesex and recall my grandfather's stories of the flood of 1927. He had been a heavy equipment operator and helped with the cleanup from that flood.
