The gale resulted in more outages across Vermont than any storm in history, including Tropical Storm Irene and the l998 ice storm, according to Green Mountain Power.

Abby kept one eye on the ball and the other on Tucker, the center of her universe. Her bond to Tucker is being strengthened through a program called Vermont Paws & Boots, which trains service dogs to aid military veterans and first responders who need a constant companion for savings that can be life-saving.
