Hidden Springs post-Irene update

Wow…that was some storm!

Like most of Vermont, especially southern and central regions, at the Hidden Springs sugarbush we experienced mild winds, and incredible quantities of rain over much of Sunday.  Catherine and I went out with Fraser in the middle of it (early Sunday afternoon) to see what we could see.  I regret that we only got a few pictures (it was difficult to keep the camera dry and our old digital gets temperamental when it’s damp.)
