THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Leaves are changing color quickly in St. Lawrence County just as fall officially arrives. Some portions of the Adirondacks are showing a bit more color, in the high color (61% - 80% change) range. Elsewhere in the region, most color change is low (11% - 30% change), according to the Foliage Network. St. Lawrence County spotters in Canton expect 30 percent color change with bright touches of red, yellow and orange. For more information on the changing colors visit www.foliagenetwork.com or www.ILoveny.com.
Do you plan on driving around the North Country or Adirondacks to see the fall colors?
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
If a large-scale disaster were to impact St. Lawrence County, the American Red Cross says a plan is in place, according to Jane Gendron, executive director for the North Country Chapter of the American Red Cross. Designated shelters include schools and colleges. ‘The hurricanes offers us a chance to promote being prepared locally,’ Gendron said. ‘Winter is coming. ‘With snow and ice, power outages happen, she said, and being prepared for those situations takes planning. Gendron recommends people keep a supply of water and non-perishable food. The Red Cross website suggests keeping one gallon per person, per day with a three-day supply for evacuation and two week supply for staying at home. A three-day supply of food for evacuation and two week supply for home is also recommended.
