Before I came across the story I am posting below, I wrote the following: 

Here's what I think is going on in Vermont and other areas of rural areas of New England. I think we are victims of a weather engineering program targeting the small farm and other remnants of self-sufficient American life as they exist here to this day. Don't think that's possible? Take a look at  Operation Popeye, the US military rain-making program deployed to intensify and extend the monsoon season during the Vietnan War. Remember, too. that dictatorships always make war on agriculture, usually killing millions of people, as a means to control independent citizens, as in Stalin's Ukraine, in Mao's China, also in FDR's New Deal. I think it is perfectly possible (or even likely) that the illegitimate regime in Washington, which hates Americans, is already deploying weather warfare, the perfect crime, against New Englanders as part of their wider strategy to drive Americans into the misery of the new world order/Agenda 2030/socialist paradise. 

How could I say such a thing? For all kinds of reasons, many of them starting at this website Geoengineeringwatch.org. Another reason is the inexplicable frequency of jet sorties overhead. Informally, I mentally note six to eight such sorties every day -- and that is only partial tally because I am not monitoring air activity 24/7. It is worse at night -- waking up to hear jets overhead in the dark hours, cutting through the glorious sound of the frogs in the marsh. Another reason is the utterly unnatural, un-Vermontlike weather patterns of this entire summer -- lots of jets, very little sun, rain almost everyday, milky skies instead of blue, weird cloud formations, super high humidity, weirdly hot sunlight, pelting rainfall -- and that was before this week's catastrophic flooding.  

The left will call it global warming. OK. But notice how they won't ever talk about geoengineering and the secret air force mission underway.

Here's today's story on crop losses by Guy Page from the Vermont Daily Chronicle:

Vermont farmers stunned by a late May frost destroying $10 million of crops suffered a second major blow when this week’s floodwaters inundated their crops and closed roads, Vermont Agency for Agriculture and Food Markets Secretary Anson Tebbetts said at a Scott administration press briefing today.

Dumping milk – The Agency of Agriculture website states that Vermont dairy farmers cut off from milk hauling trucks are being forced to dump their milk into manure pits. Dairy farmers have limited milk storage capacity and must dump milk if the milk truck can’t make its daily or every-other-day visit. Tebbetts said today, “that problem is not as bad as it could have been” but there are still pockets of cut off farmers.

State workers have done great work clearing Rte. 2 access to the Cabot milk processing facility, Tebbetts said. He also praised farmers for climbing on their tractors and repairing local roads themselves. 

Looking tired, his face drawn, the normally cheerful ex-TV anchorman delivered the bad news: “It is clear the losses will be catastrophic. Excessive flooding and flooding has destroyed a large share of our produce” and animal feed crops.

Hay supply will be a problem, Tebbetts said. Much was lost, and it’s unclear whether another crop is likely. 

Consumers will feel the farmers’ pain, Tebbetts said: “There is a ripple effect” that “will affect our food systems and food security.”

But consumers can help, too.

“This is the time to support farmers” by attending farmers’ markets, buying local in stores, and buying online, Tebbetts said. 

Montpelier’s farmers market tomorrow morning has been moved uphill to the College of Fine Arts green off East State Street.

The May freeze cost Vermont produce growers $10 million and Congress must act to fund support, Tebbetts said. As for long-term farm viability being harmed by the one-two punch – it’s too early to tell, he said.

Other July flood updates:

Last night’s storm didn’t cause flooding, but it did knock out power, especially in Rutland and Addison counties. Total power outages statewide peaked at 14,000 last night and are down to 3,500 this morning. 

U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttegieg will visit Vermont Monday “to talk about how we rebuild and recover” the state’s transportation infrastructure.

President Biden last night approved the disaster relief request. Details will be released soon by the Scott administration.

Don’t swim in or drink floodwaters, Health Commissioner Mark Levine reminded Vermonters. If you’re cut, beware infection and consider a tetanus shot booster.

If your house was flooded, assume your house has mold. For more info on cleanup,  go to HelpVermont.gov.
