Flood — Live Report



I’ve been at my parents’ home in the NY State Catskill Mountains near the Delaware River. After six consecutive days of rain, the river has begun to flood. Since I have been on nephew day camp duty this week, we visited some of the flooded areas. With “live” footage, here is news team Greg and Geoffrey.

Here in Narrowsburg, NY on the bridge to Pennsylvania, the river has flooded the Flats where lots of my nephews’ friends live.

    Do I need to report you for bringing your nephews to dangerous locations? And isn’t it time to update your link for my blog? What could be more important?

    Joe, so glad you are concerned about the youth of America.

    Now as to your web link, yes, it is now updated. How could I have been so negligent on so many fronts? Glad you have my back, brother.

    Abby! Great to see you. I feared you had forgotten about me.

    Your update about the Roebling Aqueduct nearly gave me a heart attack until I realised that this wasn’t near Roebling, NJ.

    What cuties! I can imagine you might have looked similar to these boys fifty years ago when you were but a lad.

    Great reporting, guys!
