Route 138, Voluntown
December 14, 2008
This hardly belongs on this blog, but it’s here. I happened to be hiking near Voluntown when I heard about this show and how they were filming nearby. They finished up on a Saturday and I was there Sunday morning.
The house is ugly and way too big. It doesn’t fit in to the area at all. BUT – this family deserves whatever they can get. I actually watched the show (most of it anyway; I think football was on) and man, it’s a heart wrencher. I’ve since been told all these home makeover shows are like this which begs the question – why would anyone ever watch this stuff? It’s brutal.
What happened to the Girard family is insanely horrible and this show is pretty cool I guess. You can watch it youselves here if you want.
Go ahead and watch the remaining four parts if you want to cry some more.
Anyway, there was a traffic jam in front of the house that day in November. Probably the first traffic jam in Voluntown in its history.
Voluntown Traffic Nightmare!
