Probably the most dramatic was the ice storm of 1998. For us it wasn’t so terrible. Our power went out only intermittently. But only a few blocks away there was no power for 10 days, and in some areas for several weeks. When that happens in the winter here, there are all sorts of dangers: no heat, dangerous use of generators, etc. I was impressed when power crews from other states came here to work in the dead of winter, people from all over the country. We stored food for a friend whose power was out longer, and friends definitely came over to our warm house!
It couldn’t be more crucial. I’m trying to use less energy, but I feel like a contributor to the problem given my commuting.
Agree. I wish the United Church of Christ would re-write its Statement of Faith, or at the very least add to it, to reflect our gratitude and responsibility for the created world with which God entrusts us.
I love autumn, for the crisp air and the colors of the leaves. It’s still warm enough to enjoy being outside, but not too hot.
In the upper 60’s to low 70’s and sunny. We had rain in Vermont last week. I wonder what our visit would have been like with sun? More walking, no doubt! And better views.
