We had made plans for a long weekend from California to check out the fall colors in Vermont and N.H. Oct 14-17.Our plan was Boston to Brattleboro then up Rt 100 to Killington overnight at a Hotel, onward somehow to the White Mts with the next hotel in N. Conway, then back to Boston and Ca. Realistically should I cancell the Killington hotel? Or are there other equally attractive ways avoiding broken roads. I'm assuming there isn't a problem in N. H. Or should we just go to Cape Cod instead?

    A friend who lives in Buzzards Bay said they had a lot of leaf damage. Perhaps other parts of the Cape are fine. NH is beautiful. The Kanc has been repaired and re-opened.

    Call your hotel to check conditions. Check www.511VT.gov
    It still shows road closures on rt 100 but there's still time. There was serious damage in West Lebanon NH commercial district but we had no trouble going from Norwich VT thru W Lebanon toward Concord NH on Rt 4 just one week after Irene. You shouldn't have any trouble taking I93 to I89 if you have to avoid Rt 100 in VT. Rt 4 to Killington still shows closure. Killington was hit hard but your hotel should have current info.

    There are plenty of other places in VT to go. For exploring, we've always loved Rt 7 that goes from Middlebury to Burlington.

    Unfortunately, restaurants in some badly damaged areas are not going to be open in time.

    Oct 14-17 is getting late for foliage in northern areas and I think it's too late for N Conway since peak is usually around Columbus Day weekend in the Concord NH area which is south of N Conway and at a lower elevation but I wouldn't go to Cape Cod instead. If you are spending more than one night in NH, yes I would consider someplace further south. There's a lot of back roads in the quiet SW corner of the state. Closer to the coast is warmer so Portsmouth should be good, too. If you consider Portsmouth, try a foliage cruise.
