Weather, Nov 3, 05

Hey Shirl, If you are reading this, the wind report at the end of this post should also cover your area. The trees are just starting to sway here.
This wind should bring down the remaining leaves on the trees-- more to clean up. But, I had`nt cleared off all the others that fell , so will just be more waiting. Glad I got the ones under the huge tree done as there is always more there than in the rest of the yard and the vacant yard combined. Of course there is always raking to do in my front yard even though I have no trees there. They blow over from the neighbors across the street and from the small wooden area on the other side of the road. They used to have 3 tall trees in their yard, but one died and they had to cut it down. I noticed that a second tree isn`t as healthy as it used to look, so maybe next year there will be just one left in their front yard to ship leaves into my front yard. One tree is still full of leaves, while their other one is almost bare of leaves. They have an old junk van sitting in the wooded area across the road and I`m surprised that the town hasn`t made them move it before now. Been there over 5 years and the law here says you can have just one unlicensed vehicle and the parts in it must fit another vehicle you have on the road. That old vans parts would never fit any of their new vehicles. But, maybe the town doesn`t know who owns the vehicle since it is not on their own property. I don`t even know who does own that small wooded area and I have lived here since 1955. it is too small an area to build on unless theychange some laws- here you need at least three lots or 90 frontage x 100 back. Thats why noone can build on our empty lot as it is only 60x 100. They once talked about making everyone join any empty lots to their home property that it joins. I won`t do that because it would make more property to my home lots and raise my taxes. We bought it when the older neighbor passed away and his wife wanted the money for a son`s wedding. If their trailor hadn`t been moved out, we might have gotten permission to exchange the junk trailer for a more modern one. But the owner had it removed before selling the property. That trailer was there before the law was passed on property limits. Isn`t it funny how trailer park owners can place trailers one almost on top of the next with no regard to the same lot limits that other home owners must abide by? Over the years most of the wooded areas have been cut down for new Homes ot trailers. Was a much smaller community when we first moved here-- you knew most everyone who lived in this section of the town. Today there are so many new homes making so many people that you never get to know. Of course running the Grocery Store for over 5 years and running a bike shop for a lot longer than that, this did help usto get to know those who origionally lived here. Any being involved with scouting also helped us to meet even more. So, we were well known in the area years back. Well back to the wind report:

Issued at: 3:59 AM EST 11/3/05, expires at: 12:00 PM EST 11/3/05High wind warning in effect from 9 am this morning to 10 pm est this evening, The NWS in albany has issued a high wind warning for the southern adirondacks, western mohawk valley, saratoga region, eastern catskills, taconics, southern vermont, the berkshires and litchfield hills, which is in effect from 9 am this morning to 10 pm est this evening. A strong pressure gradient will form across the northeast united states today as a result of a low pressure system moving across southern canada and high pressure over the southeast united states. The pressure gradient will be responsible for producing south to southwest winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 60 mph especially at elevations above 1500 feet. The winds will shift to the west this evening and decrease late this evening. Areas which will be most vulnerable to the winds are those which sustained damage from the heavy wet snow last week and areas where winds are channeled. In addition the ground remains saturated in many areas from the heavy precipitation which fell during the month of October, so shallow rooted trees may fall easily. The very strong winds will result in widespread downed limbs and some power outages. A high wind warning means a hazardous high wind event is expected or occurring. Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage.
