Irene’s East Side Impact

This just in from reader Courtnay  -- the latest on what’s happening to folks on the East shore of the lake – crews have been hard at work clearing multiple downed trees and branches and working hard to restore power.

Subject: East Shore ...Treeless!

Message: An update on east side of Schroon treeless as trees were removed from sandy point area and wires fixed, as well as overhanging trees by Red Wing area. Still not a clear path north to town due to flooding @Alder Meadows…but we no longer need to drive to exit 25 south to get to Town of Schroon! Now if the lake will stop rising soon?! 5 feet higher on beach and chilly water!
