Reflecting on Ellicott City


As I walked around town taking flood pictures this morning I was able to capture this reflection in a window of the old firehouse top and it made me think about all the good images I have of Ellicott City in both my mind and on film. A good friend said this could be worse than Agnes in the early 70’s. So I’m going to start this day with a nice image of the town because what little I saw broke my heart.

Then the people I talked to, broke my heart. I’ll have to keep a good track of Ho.Co. Blogs and get down there to see who needs help. And the question is again, Will EC triumph over Mother Nature?

I’ll post some more images later this morning and a link to the full set also once I upload them.

  1. News this morning said “stay away” – did you park up by Roger Carter & walk down?

    • Parked up at the courthouse and walked down Church St. Then went up to West End Truck lot and walked down from there. Its so sad. Talked to a few residents that were flooded out.
