Hard Work Post-Irene for Shelburne Falls
It's been almost a week since Tropical Storm Irene caused the Deerfield River in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts to rise enough that it washed over roads, crashed through buildings, and even moved some off their foundations. All this just as the foliage season is about to begin. Tourism is not the community's only source of prosperity, but this picturesque village in the western corner of Franklin County does profit from visitors. And as New England Public Radio's Jill Kaufman reports, people are working hard to clean up the town in time for Labor Day Weekend.
