It's been a weekend of destruction in Vermont. Areas in the Northeast Kingdom saw substantial amounts of damage. Including in Glover, where residents are now working on putting the pieces back together.
This summer has been one of devastating storms. Saturday, the Northeast Kingdom town of Glover experienced yet another round of heavy winds and rain.
"I had a calf blow in the air. We found it. She's in rough shape, might make it," said farmer Brandon Tanner.
Tanner was out mowing the hay when the storm rolled in. Moments later, he found himself in the middle of it as it blew down trees around him. He still wasn't prepared for the damage waiting for him back at home.
"When I got back to the barn and I had two leveled barns and equipment flying everywhere," Tanner said. "I had some cows hit in the head, punctured eyes. One swimming in the manure pit."
"We had stuff blow all the way, probably the length of about two football fields, all the way across that hay field," said Glover resident David Perrigo.
One of Perrigo's prized possessions, a tumbled apple tree, is now laying in the yard.
"The old apple tree with the red swing that everyone's known for years and years won't be there anymore," Perrigo said. "We'll have all the family up this week. Get a little help to do the clean up and what not."
As Perrigo and Tanner wait for family to arrive to help out, Hal Parker won't be having any guests any time soon at his vacation home on Daniel's Pond. He'll be cleaning up the mess for awhile.
Residents say they hope to have everything back to normal as soon as possible. But with the unexpected storms so far this summer, many are concerned of possibly more on the horizon.
"It came very fast, couldn't prepare for it. The sky turned black, then it just hit us," Parker said.
Within a matter of minutes, the storm had passed, downing 70-year-old trees and leaving debris everywhere.
At the height of this weekend's storms, 10,000 customers lost power. Sunday evening, about 1,300 still needed to have power restored.
