most posts around here are fairly upbeat, but given my proximity to the devastation, it’s necessary to spend some time on it here.
this is my town. I live 2 blocks from here. I walk this way on nearly a daily basis.
the chatter this morning felt fairly callous and insensitive. Irene certainly didn’t feel over-hyped to those of us in states and communities inundated by flood waters.
here in the state of vermont,
3 4 people have died in the flood waters. 260 roads have been washed out and are impassable. hundreds and hundreds have been left homeless. 13 town are completely isolated with no way out and little provisions.
for those looking to help:
more ways to help will be forthcoming as I hear about them.
