hurricane irene visits snow pond, nh – update I

with no concord monitor assignment to fulfill today, i simply cannot let go of my urge to document the hurricane.  therefore, i’ll be posting updates from snow pond throughout the day to YOU, my dear blog readers.  ;)

it seems like the hurricane has weakened quite a bit from what the reports were saying yesterday.  after photographing a wedding in st. johnsbury, vt last night, we drove home and faced some light rain.  this morning we woke up to more rain and 15-20 mph winds (according to  the wind does seem to be picking up, and 40-50 mph gusts are expected later this afternoon.

here are a few photos, and as you can see from the last photo, the heavy rains have breached our roof wall, forcing our living room rug to shut down.  shame.

  1. Hi Katie! Bill and I are holed up in Burlington, VT, waiting for a group of beginning farmers from Missouri to arrive later today and tomorrow. So far just rain here, though it looks like the wind is picking up a little bit. Looking forward to following your blog today!!

  2. Hurricane season is one of my least favorite seasons, but I would feel the same way as you wanting to document it, especially if I didn’t have any assignments to shoot. My husband and I were talking about this yesterday, and he flipped out when I told him that, if there were a hurricane to come to Louisiana, I’d be out covering it, and he could stay home and/or evacuate with the pup…

    Stay safe and dry-ish!
