Waterbury, 4 Days After Irene [238] 

9/1/11: 4 days after Tropical Storm Irene hit Vermont and the town of Waterbury is in the process of cleaning and rebuilding. Despite suffering massive property losses, the people I spoke to seemed upbeat and positive. Community spirit is high as neighbors and volunteers join together to dig in and clean up.

Featured in this video are Jeff Lang of The Alchemist Pub & Brewery and Jeremy Ayers who sells his pottery at the Burlington Artists Market.
