We had another loss of electricity this past weekend. Saturated soil, additional precipitation, and heavy wind gusts are a recipe for disaster around here.
In addition to tree-related damage, the torrent of water rushing around a bend in Chestnut Ridge Road contributed a partial collapse of the roadway. If you are making your way to the sanctuary at any time in the near future, be cautious of the barricade of barrels, cones, and sawhorses alerting drivers of the road hazard. This is most important for visitors accessing Chestnut Ridge Road off of NY Route 172.
