Rain undermines basement, takes down trees

Yesterday's heavy rain undermined a basement on Foot Hill Road and toppled trees on Genung Road. I was a little surprised here to see my birdfeeder had fallen over, but this was the first good rain since I put it in, so I guess I just need to put it in again.

Update: I heard today about flooded basements in the Village of Dryden, and now it's raining again hard. We'll see...

Briefly in Tompkins also notes a meeting to be held tomorrow night at 7:005:30pm (sorry!) at the old Dryden Town Hall (map) to discuss the new Dryden Town Hall's construction.

Our stream overflowed, and Ian has spent the past two evenings cleaning up wet carpet in the basement. Luckily all our hard work in the garden has not been compromised. As I am typing this, the sun is shining. Perhaps I will be able to hang the wash today.
