Absorbing Irene

As the sodden ground tries to absorb the flood waters, we are all trying to absorb the impact of Irene on New Paltz.

I've spoken with many people and some public officials about the state of affairs right now and their impressions of same.  This is, without a doubt, the worst situation New Paltz has faced in well over a generation.

I don't have time to compile what I've learned quite yet, so only two quick time-sensitive items:

  1. South Oakwood has a short closure due to a tree falling on a power line.
  2. The nursing home on Jansen Road had its entrance bridge completely destroyed . . . again.  No vehicle access unless they've finished patching together a temporary solution.
