Four months ago, Tropical Storm Irene hit, leaving a deep scar on the state of Vermont. In Part 1, we took a year-end look at the power of the storm. In Part 2– the recovery.

Waitsfield singer-song writer Grace Potter wrote “Mad Mad River” about the devastation. We use her performance to revisit the weeks following Irene.

The piece was edited by WCAX News Photographer Lance MacKenzie.
