Many in Vt. grateful state bypassed by Sandy wrath

WILMINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- Many people across Vermont who feared Superstorm Sandy would be a repeat of last year's Tropical Storm Irene say they're grateful the state escaped this time, but they're concerned about the parts of the country that were hit the hardest.

Wilmington was one of the Vermont community's hit hardest by Irene. Flooding devastated the downtown.

People there watched with trepidation the forecasts before Sandy hit that predicated the area could be hit by high winds and some areas could experience flooding.

Lisa Sullivan, the owner of Wilmington's Bartleby's Books, which is still recovering from Irene, says people in her community are raw and emotional, but happy Sandy caused no flooding or other significant damage. She says it's heart breaking to watch what's happening in other places.
