Morning, day two, I returned
to the area around Fairbrook road. It was eerily quiet and still as the morning
light began to reveal the extent of the carnage that had occurred the day
before. Small fires still smoldered, the air was now thick with the smell
of burning plastic, rubber and wood....you could literally taste the air.
A few birds flitted among the ruins but other than that, the entire place
seemed utterly lifeless.
