The state is still tallying the total damages from Tropical Storm Irene, but the overall cost could exceed $2 billion when state and town infrastructure damages are combined with private property loss. Friday on Vermont Edition, Bob Kinzel talks with state "Recovery Czar" Neale Lunderville about where things stand six weeks after Irene, and what major challenges are still ahead.

Also in the program, VPR's John Dillon looks back on some of top stories of the week, including a proposed natural gas pipeline to Addison County. And we listen back to some of the voices in the week's news.
