RUTLAND/ADDISON COUNTIES — And just like that, fall is over.

An intense windstorm overnight Sunday denuded the autumn trees of their leaves in Vermont as a powerful low-pressure system fueled by the remnants of Tropical Storm Philippe carried 70-80 mph wind gusts that battered the state for hours overnight.

At first light Monday, roughly a third of Vermonters were without power as crews from Green Mountain Power and other power companies spread out across the state to repair downed lines and snapped power poles. Most of the trees were bare.

MONKTON — While this week’s windstorm felled many trees and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of Vermonters, it also brought out the best in some people.

Town Clerk Sharon Gomez opened the Monkton Firehouse off State’s Prison Hollow Road as a respite center on Wednesday for those who still didn’t have electricity. Anyone is welcome between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to come take a shower (bring your own towel, please), have a cup of coffee or chicken noodle soup, and play a kids’ game if you like.

By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — At the Oct. 24 meeting of the Vergennes City Council, board members took a concrete action that should prove popular: They approved $3,880 in repairs to the city pool.

Many residents in the past two years have urged the council to pay more attention to the pool, calling it probably the city’s most valuable recreation asset.

On this past Tuesday, the council unanimously backed City Manager Mel Hawley’s recommendation to spend $3,880 to caulk the joints around the edge of the pool and all the joints in the decking around the pool.
