Hi this is Jax Downs and today I want to talk about standing in the areas of the flooding. In my worksite there was 6ft of water, and you can see the water stain on the houses and concrete. It’s a bit eerie thinking of all that water sitting around these houses eating away and rotting away these houses. Now it’s gone and I’m standing below its surface repairing its damage, and restoring people’s lives and homes. But I can’t help but think of the irony and dispair caused by an element so essential to life, and how much this shows the two faces of nature. One of beauty and another of destruction and pain, it’s scary that all we can do is fix and hope for the next fury to pass us by.
