After the Flood

We are interrupting our trip’s linear flow to bring you an episode from upstate New York. We felt like the immediacy of this issue needed to be touched upon now. The flooding that resulted from Hurricane Irene followed a week later by tropical rains that re-flooded farms in NY and VT was devastating. Late summer is the most important part of the year for a lot of farmers (its what they’ve been working for the entire year), and when that gets wiped out, its like losing your entire income. Such is the story in this video of Pete Taliaferro and Ray Bradley. Please watch the video and remember that although it has left the headlines, people are still deeply affected by what happened.
