Hurricane Sandy Aid

Irene Sugar House 0007

Stalling of Storm Aid Makes Northeast Republicans Furious

I shot this sugar house last summer and posted it to this blog. Claire and I passed it on New Years Day and I thought I need to shoot it in the winter. Then the controversy over Hurricane Sandy relief aid erupted and I grabbed the camera and headed up the road to Plymouth. The snow was over 2 feet deep in front making access awkward and the weight of the snow on the roof must be adding to instability of the structure. Although most Vermonters have recovered fully from Irene, some still haven't. I am sure a year from now some Hurricane Sandy victims will still be trying to piece their homes and life back together.

Indeed it may take longer than a year for some Hurricane Sandy victims to piece their lives back together. Some already have. Some never will. Such is the human condition. The propped up, delapidated sugar house is an 'image metapho' of life, weathered by years and 'the heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks that [the physical] is heir to'.
