Profound sadness is what I’m feeling watching part of your hometown wash away. Friends, merchants, landmarks, people’s homes or apartments, cars, personal effects, artworks, valuables. All lost again. Hopefully nobody has lost their lives this time.
This is the town my wife grew up in. This is a town I worked in many years. It’s a town I love to go to eat, walk, photograph and shop. And now its devastated again.
No more farmers markets for a while again. And probably no town again for many months and maybe years. Already seen a video of one vendor who rebuilt after the last flood but sounded done after this one. And I would suspect that more had that thought already.
I hope it pulls itself up out of the mud and muck again. But I’m really wondering what the future is for this great town.
