Boats are everywhere but in the water.
Patrick found a bundle of letters in the debris.
Kick tells the story:
"The most amazing thing did happen. we were wandering around like everyone else...must have walked 20 miles. We walked all the way down to highlands and back. Patrick found a stack of old love letters dated 1942 to some guy in Troy Vermont!!! he took them home and dried everyone of them by the fire. We read them in the dark. They are addressed to a Mr. Lynn Farnham all the envelopes say is North Troy Vermont...no zip or anything.
"Something so beautiful in the midst of all this destruction. Reminded us all that love conquers all."
And destruction it is. Photos and vids are everywhere on the intertubes. Kick took this of "the small gas line" as she and Scott drove around the area this afternoon:
"fist fights at the gas stations. one of his buddies had to threaten someone with a baseball bat. guy tried taking gas cans out of his truck."
And my dear Kick says, "We are so lucky Laura. I walk 10 feet down the street and I want to cry. people with huge trees on their houses. walls blown out from the water rushing through. found a 50 savings bond from Highlands, gonna look for the addressee some day. I feel guilty taking pictures. I make sure no one is looking."
And so closes the second day after Sandy, Halloween 2012.
