Today the flood-destroyed houses on Lower Main have started to be demolished. One is down in a pile of rubble as of now (2 PM) with more to follow today and over the next several days. While we knew this day was coming it’s a stark reminder that these were the homes of our friends and neighbors. One home owner told me that they made a last visit to their house the other day and standing in the destruction, tearfully remembered that they started their family there. That’s the bitter part. The sweet part is that of the homeowners I’ve talked, they are all looking forward to what comes next.
