A few days before this issue was scheduled to go to press, Montpelier, Vermont, where our headquarters is located, was inundated with a flood of biblical proportions. It decimated our downtown, gutting every street level business and causing millions of dollars in damages. Rebuilding will take a long time.
Thankfully, Russian Life’s offices were spared, as we are well above street level. But the disruptions to infrastructure, access, and services led to delays. And we are surrounded by neighbors – both businesses and individuals – who are in need of help.
It was a graphic reminder of how puny humans are when measured against the power of nature, of how quickly life can turn from one filled with peace and beauty to one teeming with disaster and destruction.
