Story by Lark Thwing.

None of us in Hawley (or for that matter, any of those up and down the east coast) will soon forget the Sunday morning, August 28th, when Hurricane Irene arrived with a fury.  It will, in all likelihood, go down in history as the 100-year-flood for much of the western parts of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont.
