Historic Covered Bridge Washes Away in Vermont

I didn’t even know how much I loved old covered bridges until I saw this video of one washing away during Hurricane Irene, and I cried! It was built in the 1870s.

This is what Kathy’s Remodeling Blog is all about, treasuring and restoring our heritage, our past, our history. I can’t believe how emotional this is. With radical weather change upon us, we must take even more seriously the preservation of our homes and landmarks. That will be tougher from here on, and we must be prepared.

P.S. Turn down your speaker volume if you don’t want to hear the observers of this tragedy cussing. I think it’s quite appropriate, but you can make your own decision.

    I’d love to see a cellphone photo of that painting!

    The only picture my Mom ever painted was of a red covered bridge. Just think of all the buggies that crossed over those planks! Sweethearts sneaking a kiss. Oh — it is so sad! Thank you for sharing Kathy.
