Weather getting in way of hearing
April 28, 2011 - Jessica Collier
Everyone's a little concerned today about road closures due to flooding. A group of Tupper Lakers, including Mickey Desmarais and Bob Fuller, just left because they're thinking about closing down state Route 3 and 30 between Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake near the Crusher where the water has reached the road.
Several people from the Keene area had trouble getting here today. Lorraine Duval from Protect didn't get here until after lunch, Dan Plumley from Adirondack Wild was late this morning, and the APA's Keith McKeever stayed home altogether.
They just had a discussion about whether or not to hold a session tomorrow. The consensus seemed to be that if 3 and 30 is closed, which would mean Tupper Lakers couldn't get here, tomorrow's session would be canceled, but if not, they're going to hold a session. APA's Paul Van Cott is going to email the service list tomorrow morning around 9 a.m. to let them know, and people who aren't on the service list or can't get email can call the APA office to find out.
If they're here, I'll be here. My little Chevy can drive through anything! That's not true at all, but I'll figure something out. There's some flooding on the back road I usually take from Saranac Lake to Ray Brook, but the main roads should be fine.
Edit: McKeever is upset that I said he stayed home altogether. While the people that were able to get here live west of Keene Valley, but where McKeever lives, he can't get through either way. Sorry, Keev. My Keene-area geography is limited to driving through on the way to the Northway and stopping at that one gas station, and I have no idea where anyone lives. Also I don't know where the road closings are out there. I should note that McKeever has been in regular email contact all day.
