Buckle down again…
The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for Central New York on Wednesday (6am-11pm). Winds are expected to be WSW 25-35 mph, with gusts up to 60 mph. A high wind warning is issued “when sustained winds of 40 mph are expected for at least an hour, or gusts of 58 mph or greater,” the weather service said. With a large amount of ice on the lake still, we will monitor conditions through the day. We did lose power during last weekend’s weather so you may need to check the Twitter feed for updates. I expect to lose power again tomorrow 🙁 and we are hoping for a minimal amount of damage along the east shore.
We remain unseasonably cold, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Next week we look to return to normal temperatures.
Sylvan Beach Swimming
The Village of Sylvan Beach will no longer have lifeguards along the beach for 2018. Swimming will now be at your own risk and signs will be posted with the warning. We are told this change comes from the State Department of Health, which would require the Village of Sylvan Beach to supervise the entire beach, which is nearly a mile long and is obviously not feasible financially. No word on how swimming will be impacted at Verona Beach at this time and we will be following up on this development.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
April 4th, 7:01 pm EST time, marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We would like to take this occasion to recognize that many of the challenges Dr. King was fighting at the time of his death remain with us today. The New York Times has an interesting piece on King’s legacy.
