No Matter How Bad Your Day Was…

…It Wasn’t This Bad

Jack o’ lanterns try escape their fate

The owner of a farm in Newbury, Vt., says drenching rains washed as many as 100,000 pumpkins into the Connecticut River.

The pumpkins had been picked and were waiting to be shipped when storms hit the area during the weekend. Estimated the total loss at 100,000 pumpkins.

About 4,000 made it at least 25 miles downstream, where they washed up on a beach near the Wilder Dam, just north of White River Junction.
