  •  here it is much worse. (26+ / 0-)

    Though it is a bit of an apples/oranges comparison. there weren't many roads in VT in 1927 that weren't horse paths widened to accommodate the few cars, and very few paved roads. Also, traveling across the state was an adventure back then, where it is a daily commute for Mrs kamarvt (ok, used to be a daily commute).
    and to your previous question; we are well stocked. I'm an avid gardener, and we have a pantry full of supplies. Quite a few people laughed at me when I talked about becoming more self sufficient in advance of the coming Zombie Apocalypse, but I am in a position to survive quite comfortable without seeing a store of any kind for weeks at least.  As for water, I can walk up into my backyard and get as much as I want right now, and I have a well, which is less adventurous, but easier.
    Thanks for the concern, and the diary; this is a good gathering point for VT kossacks.

    Quote from yesterday; "The only landlocked state in Irene's path has been hit the hardest".

    I think that is true.

    Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
