It was a storm that left residents with more damage than they could have ever imagined.
"The basement has about 13 inches of water," said Bob Genter of Underhill.
And preparing for the aftermath of the floods that swept through Underhill Thursday night was almost impossible, as residents like Genter could only think about getting to safety.
"My first thought should've been to get the vehicles out. I didn't realize that until this morning," Genter said.
But for some residents along Route 15, the damage is so bad, leaving home means never returning.
"So, now it's just a matter of getting what we can and moving on," said Andrew Fletcher of Underhill. "I would be happy not to never look at this place ever again."
For many others, getting to their homes has been a challenge. The rain continues to fall, causing many roads to remain closed.
"We had a lot of rain statewide, but the focus in terms of damage appears to be in eastern Chittenden County and Western Lamoille County," Vt. Transportation Secretary Brian Searles said.
And the flooding is expected to continue.
"And then of course the other important thing is making sure people are prepared for a couple more days of rain," Searles said. "These may not be the last problems we have to deal with."
In Cambridge, the main concern of emergency workers is that the waters will continue to rise and cause more damage. And much of that damage means a loss for farmers, like Mark Boyden of Boyden Farm.
"My thoughts were worrying about damage to the crops," Boyden said. "We had planted, all of our crops are now organic, so we want to make sure that we don't lose the crops, lose the money invested or any soil either."
Bride Amber Bushey, her groom and their 165 guests can only hope Saturday will be picture-perfect on Boyden Farm.
"We're hopeful that there will be a break in the rain, but at this point based on what we've seen and what the weather looks like, we're not going to be able to go outside, which is upsetting, but with Mother Nature, you can't change her," Bushey said.
Staying positive throughout the rainy day means the show will go on.
"They say rain is lucky on your wedding, so we like to think we're gonna be extremely lucky in our marriage. So, we're trying to be optimistic about it," Bushey said.
But rain or shine, the bride and groom say there will be a wedding.
