We have no reason to believe there is a problem but will send an expert up to examine it as soon as we can make it happen. We don't want hot boiled peanuts floating in the Hudson River do we?

Please update us with the status of the reservoir/damn on the mountain as numerous people have reported that it overflowed and is damaged. Any truth to this and is there ANY CHANCE that it could be breached? Living beneath it makes me ask!


Thanks Steve.
