Pittsfield, Vermont, population 427, reacted in its own special way to severe flooding from Hurricane Irene that has turned their community into an island.
They had a town barbecue.
"No one in this town was expecting the flooding to be what it was, and we've all gotta eat," said Jason Evans, the owner of the skiing enclave's popular Clear River Tavern.
"My house is high and dry, but there was water all around my restaurant," he said. "We just had everybody come to the park and we cooked up hamburgers and hotdogs.
"I would have lost everything anyway, so why not feed some folks?"

Wow. Someone was thinking, wanted to help others and committed a generous act. That's the kind of news story I will never get tired of reading. Thank you.
What about the poor Vegans? What will they eat and how can they survive? :)))
They can make a salad from the newly salted grasses & plants Irene left behind. ;)
