I have several friends (and co-writers of this blog) evacuated and stuck in Middleburgh, New York tonight. Hurricane Irene has completely flooded Schoharie County - every road is closed; the Gilboa dam is in peril; thousands have fled and our farming communities have likely been destroyed.
This storm has completely overrun my friends and neighbors.
So, to everyone who is calling this storm a dud: please read about the plight of everyone in Upstate, New York, who is afraid of losing their homes and lives tonight - not to mention the very fabric of our daily living.
Please pray for everyone in Upstate, New York - especially my friends in Schoharie County - the co-writers of this very blog.
