Vermont Town Meeting Day

Today is a state holiday. The roads are empty and there is a hush all over the Green Mountains.  Everyone is at their town meeting hoping that town budgets get passed. If they don't get passed then many many teachers, police, firemen, animal control officers and other town and city service providers will be out of a job.  Its been a tense 6 months here as more and more people get laid off and businesses close down.
I took a ride today to practice my driving skills, with crutches, and to see the local sites.  While we all hold our breath in anticipation of the outcome of each and every town meeting in the state, here is my outside photo of the day:
