Strands of Post-Irene Road in Catskills

August 29, 2011

Our evacuation from Zone A of New York City to the Catskill Mountains continues today!

As followers of this blog know, we felt a bit bad, in leaving NYC last weekend, that we were missing out of all of the excitement of Irene.  Sure, staying for the drama of the big storm might be kind of interesting, but it wasn’t worth the risk.  (Besides, we were forced evacuees.)

So, we’d come up to the mountains we thought, where we’d be high above the coastal storm system.

Above is a video of our road, post-Irene.

Below is a video of another part of our road.

And another.

It is quite beautiful here, which is lucky, since we will be spending quite a bit more time than expected.
