They say that my home state of Vermont got some of the worst flooding. The town of Lincoln just 8 miles from where I live was cut off from the outside world because of flooded or crumbled roads. In the town of Brandon 25 miles south of me had their downtown road destroyed by a flooded river, the Brandon House of Pizza was picked up and moved 20 feet down the street. The town of East Middlebury where I grew up and where many of my coworkers and friends still live was at one point evacuated because of the flooding.

On Sunday I went up Route 116 to get home from work like I always do, some of that road runs near the New Haven river. There is a house on that road less than 20 feet from the river, the property it's on seems to flood at least once every year either from the spring thaw or heavy rain storms. When I passed by it the water was over a feet high on the house, and only a couple of feet from the road (the road was closed 20 minutes after I drove by).

Yesterday at work none of our deliveries arrived, they were stuck in Rutland 32 miles south of us no way to make it to all the schedules stores. Our monthly inventory yesterday was canceled. For weeks we've been preparing for a visit from the company president on Wednesday, that's also been canceled. Our deli manager has no way of leaving his home in Richmond.

I was lucky, me, my family and friends are all safe. The worst we got was my neighbor's basketball hoop falling down. However, we do have to boil our water for 5 minutes before we can drink or cook with it.
