Vermont's road map looks like a torn spider web. The flash floods have destroyed bridges, undermined roads and broken up the asphalt into so many scrambled pieces. Most townships and villages have been affected in one way or other since many roads in a mountainous state like Vermont are built alongside streams. Many communities are still isolated and can only be reached over treacherous make-shift roads. In addition to carrying away houses and life stock the storm hit at the top of the harvest season, destroying field crops and orchards.
The Mallard Ducks seem to be making out alright.
