The Aftermath of Tropical Storm Isaias at My Farm

Everyone is busy cleaning up at my Bedford, New York farm after Tropical Storm Isaias barreled through the region with destructive winds and flooding rainfall earlier this week.

It’s heartbreaking to see so many images of areas ravaged by this storm. Isaias' fast movement was propelled by an unusually strong jet stream over the Midwest and interior Northeast. Wind gusts of more than 60 miles-per-hour downed electricity cables and left millions of residents in the dark. Businesses were closed and many streets were blocked by fallen trees and power lines. I feel extremely fortunate my farm escaped any structural damage. I lost a lot of branches and a few trees, and all the buildings have been on generator power for several days, but everything here can be fixed, and my outdoor grounds crew is working very hard to get things back into shape. If you were in Isaias' path, I hope you and your families are safe. 

Here are some photos.
