“Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning.”― George Carlin
This is how I often feel trying to decide on whether or not to close the road when the forecast is complicated and changing with each model run. The all day rain forecast just a day ago now has an extended dry slot for most of the afternoon. Looking out the window now as I write this, the rain has stopped and the sky is definitely brightening. As of the last NOAA forecast run at 8:15 am, there was still a chance of storms developing in the early evening for an hour or two. But that wasn't a given and we'll have to see if that materializes. I suspect we will make a decision in the late afternoon whether we close the road. To keep things simple, if there is not another post later today, we are NOT closing Beekman Road. NEVER WALK BEEKMAN ROAD IF IT IS NOT CLOSED!!!
