Update: I wrote this prior to the devastating flooding in Vermont over the weekend from Hurricane Irene. I am deeply saddened over what has happened there. More information is here.
I spent almost three weeks this month visiting my family in Vermont. I go every August but this year I went for longer than usual. I worked really hard to save up enough to take that long off from work and I really wanted to spend a big chunk of time out of the city and out of the heat.
This year I really didn’t want to come home. And since I did there has been an earthquake, hurricane, and floods. My long term plan included moving to Vermont permanently and I’ve been thinking hard about how I can make that happen sooner. If I do move, then I know I’ll need to find a Ware french drain specialist near me to install a French drain system so I can divert water away from the home when it floods, read more.
