The Cheese Barrel, which was devastated by floods following Hurricane Irene on August 28, 2011.
The ice cream cone marks The Cheese Barrel . (Those are bales of hay, not giant marshmallows). Inventory was ruined and the store had to be gutted. Sue set up shop in temporary quarters. I remember how great it was to be able to get a cup of coffee in town, something that wasn't possible for a month or so after the flood, with 2/3 of the town washed out. Sue's a hard worker (when I think of her the words pluck and gumption come to mind); she rebuilt the Cheese Barrel, and opened the doors in May.
This year, there are even flowers in the parking lot.
Margaretville is starting to feel whole again.
