Flood waters have receded overall. The evacuation of Jeffersonville was lifted this morning, and residents returned to that village. Route 52 remains closed between Jeffersonville and Youngsville.
The Peck’s supermarkets in Livingston Manor, Jeffersonville and Callicoon remain closed as they clean out from the floods. Pecks Markets in Narrowsburg and Eldred are open. For those not very familiar with the area, there are Shoprite’s in Liberty (Route 52 east of Route 17 Exit 100) and in Monticello at Exit 105 (Route 42 North, Kiamesha).
Damage in low lying creek or river areas has been pretty severe, but go a half mile "inland" and you’d never know anything happened (the weather up here today is really beautiful.)
A few people have emailed me asking if the Bethel Woods opening on Saturday evening is on. By all inidications, yes. I drove by the site today, and there’s a lot of activity putting on the final touches. The weather report for Saturday evening looks pretty good — just a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms, down from a 50% chance a few days ago.
