April 27, 2013 – Thunder Road Car Show and a Brush Fire in Orange

April 28th, 2013

My Times Argus Sunday started off with the Thunder Road car show in Barre Vermont. Race car drivers from all over the state to display their cars on Main Street in Barre and promote the start of the racing season. The weather so far this spring has been unusually dry and while I was editing photos back at the office a call came over the radio for a brush fire in Orange.
