Welcome to Snapshots & Tidbits, a new series of MiddBlog! This series will feature photos of life here in Middlebury, VT. Get to know your classmates, see wonderful sites, explore the greater community and let yourself be amazed everyday by this beautiful place we live in. A poet once said art teaches us that we have not seen that which we have seen. The idea behind this is to really see the world, not take it for granted and to look at it with a new perspective. I’m hopefully going to be posting photos twice a week, but it’s a community project so please don’t hesitate to send me some of your own (firstname.lastname@example.org). Enjoy!

As the new academic year began for Middlebury College Community, so did a new chapter in Vermont History – the beginning stages of recovery from the damage of Hurricane Irene. Reports of damage to Vermont from Irene inundated the news in late August as images of covered bridges collapsing and flooding shocked the nation. As Middblog previously reported at the time, Vermont was declared a federal disaster area while the Middlebury locale luckily escaped without any damage.
Students may have noticed road closures on their way back to campus, seen pictures of the incredible volunteer response of Athletic Teams on campus for pre-season on the Middlebury College website homepage, or noticed the incredibly thorough Irene coverage of The Campus’ first issue, on the front cover , staff editorial, and Reader Op-Ed from Senator Sanders. As of September 27th, hundreds of Middlebury faculty, staff, and students had already volunteered over 2,800 hours.
But the recovery is far from over.
