Delaware River Report / Conditions October 30, 2012

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you dealing with the effects of Sandy coming ashore. We dodged a pretty big bullet it seems up here at the club. While we eventually had winds in the 70MPH+ category rolling through, very little rain fell until early this morning, and even more amazingly, the power flashed off once or twice but managed to stay on all day and throughout the night. The rivers have bumped up slightly,but no where near the levels we saw last year from Irene. The bands of precipitation stayed mostly to our West and south during the winds, but we are definitely getting soaked today. The West Branch is clear, not quite sure how the East is fairing, as the Beaverkill likely blew out with its big overnight jump. Be safe out there today, wherever you are!

This is the lucky spot.
