Wanted: movers for Andes Community Day event

WANTED:

Folks interested in participating in structured movement performance events, directed by David Capps, for Andes Community Day, 8/9/14, part of the second annual “Dancing in the Park” event in Ballantine Park.

No “dance” experience necessary – all you need is a spirit of adventurousness and a reasonably willing body that you can trust to do at least one of the following:

walk,

sit and stand,

roll on the ground.

That’s it.

We’ll get together periodically (4-5 times, mostly in June/July/August, as conveniently to everyone’s schedules as possible, for perhaps 1.5 hours each time) in the Andes environs to “rehearse” and prepare, but the idea is to have fun, explore some potentialities of moving together, and to bring something to Community Day that is, in the simplest sense, beautiful.

Please contact David Capps with expressions of interest and any questions:

Crash in Andes sends two to hospital; closes Route 28 for two hours

Above: The portion of Route 28 where a head-on collision occurred on Feb. 18, 2015. Image via Google Street View. 

Two cars slammed into each other almost head-on in the Delaware County town of Andes on Wednesday, Feb. 18. Both drivers were injured, and one woman had to be extracted from her vehicle with the jaws of life, said Dale Tait, the Andes Fire Chief. 

The collision was a "driver-to-driver almost head-on" crash that jammed the door of the woman's car completely closed, Tait said. Her vehicle appeared to have spun around on impact, ending up crossways on the road, blocking traffic.

A third car that happened on the scene was forced to drive into a snowbank to avoid colliding with the other two, Tait said. There was no damage to that third vehicle or its driver. 

Both drivers were taken to various hospitals with injuries, and the woman who was extricated was eventually airlifted to a regional hospital, Tait said. The male driver of the other car appeared to have minor injuries.  Read more

All events are happening on Valentine's Day itself -- Saturday, Feb. 14 -- unless otherwise indicated.

Snow day, again

Above: Icicles in Andes on Saturday, Feb. 7, by Mark Zilberman. Shared in the Watershed Post Flickr Pool. 

Schools and offices are closed around the Catskills on Monday, Feb. 9 as the National Weather Service predicts 8 to 14 in inches of snow for the region. All five Catskills counties -- Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster -- are under Winter Storm Warnings throughout the day on Monday. The snowfall is forecast to be heavier in the eastern parts of the Catskills. 

(What is is about snow and Mondays? This is the third Monday in a row we've had a big snowstorm in 2015.)

Catskill Park advocates step up their lobbying efforts in Albany

See video

Above: A promotional video for the Catskill Park, produced by Catskill Mountainkeeper. 

The squeaky wheel gets the grease, at least in Albany. And until recently, the Catskills were pretty quiet when it came to asking New York’s legislature and governor for money.

That changed in 2013, when a group of organizations working together as the Catskill Park Coalition began heading to the Capitol in person for a formal lobbying effort called Catskill Park Awareness Day. The idea is to knock on the doors of legislators and let them know, in person, that the Catskill Park exists, and that it needs support in the state’s budget.

“Our goal is to encourage Catskill stakeholders to become advocates for the resources needed to make the Catskill Park more accessible and to increase NYS's commitment to fund capital improvements and stewardship,” wrote Alan White, the executive director of the Catskill Center, one of the Coalition’s founding members, in an email to the Watershed Post.   Read more

Below zero temperatures moving through on arctic air

Above: "A bitterly cold night is expected across eastern NY and western New England," according to a tweet from the National Weather Service in Albany. 

The National Weather Service is warning that temperatures ranging from negative 5 to negative 10 degrees will blanket parts of the Catskills tonight, Thursday, Feb. 5. A special weather advisory for Delaware and Sullivan counties states:

Widespread Readings Of 5 To 10 Below Are Expected overnight...With The Normally Colder Spots Even Lower.If You Will Be Outside This Evening And Overnight...Be Prepared To face The Cold. Dress In Layers And Leave As Little Exposed Skin As possible. Also...If You Will Be Driving Remember That Road Chemicals are Much Less Effective At These Temperatures So Any Snow Or Ice On roads Is Unlikely To Melt Despite Being Treated. Roads May Be slippery.  Read more

Groundhog snow day

After the fakeout from last week's snowstorm-that-wasn't, a foot of snow is falling across the Catskills today, Monday, Feb. 2. Many schools and offices around the region are closed. We're tracking the storm below. Share your photos with us on Instagram, Flickr, Facebook or via email and we'll add them.

January 2015 snowstorm updates

9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27: The travel ban in Ulster County (and in most other New York counties) has been lifted, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office:

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo this morning announced that the travel ban in the Hudson Valley (Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster, Westchester counties), Nassau County, and New York City is lifted effective at 7:30 a.m. I-84 as well as the Thruway have been reopened. Drivers should use extreme caution and prepare properly as driving conditions remain poor and other states still may have travel bans in effect.

7:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27: Snow much for that. Overnight, the storm tracked farther east than forecasters expected, and now the National Weather Service, Hudson Valley Weather and other forecasters have lowered their snowfall predictions for the Catskills and New York City. It'll be just another normal winter storm from here on out, with up to 6 inches possible in most parts of the Catskills. 

From the National Weather Service in Albany

This storm was east far enough by 50-100 miles to drastically alter the snowfall accumulations in the Albany forecast area. Some snow is still expected...but much lesser amounts at this time.

The team at Hudson Valley Weather has been up all night for this nailbiter:

While we are still under advisories and warnings for up to 6-12 inches of snow by the NWS, we fill that if the moisture does actually push west this morning into the afternoon, it will only produce light to possibly moderate snowfall totals. A general 2-6 inch snow fall with maybe a few higher spots seems much more logical at this point. No reason to believe this storm will discontinue its efforts to underperform the forecast.

HVW adds that it's been getting flack from irate readers: 

As a side note, attacks against HVW and forecasters alike will not bring the snow back, it would be much more productive for you to tackle your degree in meteorology. We realize that this was a major blow to the science and to forecasting in general and it will likely open the floodgates of criticism against what forecasters do. Kinda reminds me of the movie "The Weatherman" when Nicholas Cage is walking down the street and he gets hit with a milkshake, with that said, I prefer a chocolate frosty from Wendy's.

8:20 p.m. Monday, Jan. 26: There's some confusion about whether Gov. Cuomo's travel ban includes Sullivan County. The governor named Sullivan County as one of the counties with a travel ban in both press conferences he gave on Jan. 26, but his office's official list of 13 counties with travel bans does not include Sullivan County: 

For all local and state roads, a travel ban will go into effect at 11 p.m until further notice in the following 13 counties: Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, Ulster, and Westchester.

Sullivan County Manager Joshua Potosek issued a statement at 7:15 p.m. saying that there is no travel ban in effect in Sullivan County: 

County Manger Joshua Potosek has announced that there are no current travel restrictions for Sullivan County ... County Manager Potosek urges all County residents during the storm to remain indoors and off roadways whenever possible. If residents must drive, they are advised to exercise extreme caution when driving through this storm.

It looks like the only Catskills county included in the travel ban is Ulster, where drivers have been ordered to stay off the roads after 11 p.m tonight.  

5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 26: A travel ban on all roads will be in effect in Ulster and Sullivan counties, as well in more southern New York counties, beginning at 11 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26.

"It is a total travel restriction ban," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo at a 4:45 p.m. press conference. "If you are in your car, and you are on any road after 11 p.m., you will technically be committing a crime." 

"State roads, local roads, city roads, town roads except for emergency personnel," Cuomo said. "If you violate this state order it’s a possible misdemeanor, with fines up to $300."

12 p.m. Monday, Jan. 26: Ulster and Sullivan county are under a state of emergency due to the looming snowstorm that is forecasted to bring up to 18 inches of snow to the eastern Catskills tonight, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced at a press conference at noon on Monday, Jan. 26.

There will be a tractor-trailer ban on the New York Thruway beginning at 4 p.m., and Cuomo's administration is considering issuing a total travel ban on all traffic on all main roads tonight. 

"I'm declaring a state of emergency effective immediately from Sullivan and Ulster counties south," Cuomo said.

The governor also said that there will be a tractor trailer ban on the New York Thruway beginning at 4 p.m. 

"We are considering at this time a travel ban on all main roads starting at 11 p.m. tonight," Cuomo said.

That decision on the travel ban will be made after 4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26, Cuomo said. 

"The closing of the roads is a safety precaution," he said. "It's never an easy decision." 

"This is not a storm to take lightly," he said.
