It seems like we had no Summer. Now for the first week of Fall in the Northeast, New York floods affects thousands.

The rain hitting the Northeast seems to not want to end. Just a few weeks after Massachusetts called for a State Of Emergency in Leominster, now the Mayor Of New York, Eric Adams called for the same. Under like suburban Massachusetts, torrential rain and flooding can cripple New York transit systems, used by millions who travel toand from work, every day.

New York Subways Affected By Flooding

The good news is that after Friday’s rain the subway system’s are getting back to normal.

According to New York’s ABC 7:

On Friday, virtually every subway line was at least partly suspended, rerouted or running with delays. Metro-North commuter rail service from Manhattan was suspended for much of the day but began resuming by evening.

Add to that the report says that 44 of the cities buses were stranded.

SEVEN Inches of Rain Fell

According to Fox News Television:

All of New York City’s five boroughs suffered flooded streets and subway stations, causing massive system-side disruptions to rail and bus services. Impacts were especially felt in Brooklyn, where nearly 7 inches of rain had fallen by midday. 

How Did We Do In Massachusetts?

With rain coming down all day Friday and most of Saturday, your writer of this article found himself draining his pool late Friday night. We got SO much rain, our pool water rose to the very top of the pool skimmer. If I allowed that to go higher, it could damage the pool, if water overflows and get’s between the liner and the steel structure. Last night was the second time in a month that we had to drain the pool!

But, if that’s the biggest issue we had in New England, then we are grateful.
