There is a lot of concern about the potential impact of Hurricane Sandy. I have been in contact with the Governor’s office, and have urged that steps be taken now to lower reservoir levels in the area to help absorb any rainfall.

The Governor reports that measures are being implemented, and several other steps have been taken to prepare for a potential emergency. 

I wanted to share with you some web links that you may find helpful.
