From the NYT:

In some places, stranded residents have taken matters into their own hands. When a bridge was shut down in Royalton, isolating many residents, local fire and rescue workers cleared a path through a sunflower field at the Hidden Meadow Farm. Uprooting a tree that stood in the way, they cut a hole in a chain-link fence to allow residents to temporarily drive their cars right onto Interstate 89 on what may be the shortest on-ramp in the country.

“They’re calling it the Hillbilly Highway,” said Rachel Bigelow, who set up a little farm stand selling sunflowers, tomatoes and corn by the jury-rigged interstate entrance that now cuts through her farm. Evelyn Saenz, a Royalton resident who drove through it on Thursday, praised it as “Vermont ingenuity” and had another name for it: “Exit 2 1/2.”


I did love the appearance of the farm stand.
