Over Reach?

I do find it a shame that both Central Park and Prospect Park are ordered closed tomorrow -Saturday. I also find it a shame that the greenmarkets of Saturday will be not happening. We can well predict the timing of this storm to be at the earliest Saturday evening. Greenmarkets are well wrapped up by 4pm and why not hit the park this Saturday morning before all the weather, if not to at least get a vision of it before it thrashes.

Beaches, well fine, I get it. The high surf, etc. But I will still make an honest attempt to get to the beach farm tomorrow to harvest before it all blows over. Will the Fed be as panicky as Parks?

I tell you, I depend on my rational attitude when it comes to this sort of thing, but all the chitter chatter, all the suggestive hyperbole by governors of mid-atlantic states, makes me anxious. I think what I could use is a little quiet on the emergency preparedness front. But I know it's not me they're talking to; it's an all day convince 'em committee, trying to reach that fart who never listens.


  1. The outer bands of clouds will appear overnight. We may begin feeling the effects earlier tomorrow than they are saying. Hmm. Alright. No parks.

  2. I'm not sure they can win one way or the other. Damned if they do, damned if they don't...


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
