It was Inevitable. In the early morning hours of Saturday, Jan 24, Philipstown and much of the Hudson Valley experienced it’s first significant snow storm of 2015. By 8 a.m. about six inches had fallen in Cold Spring. With the on-street parking ban in effect streets were eerily empty, making plowing a much easier job for highway crews.
People seemed to take the change in weather in stride. “We’ve been lucky so far” and “We’ve gotten off easy compared to last year” were typical of comments heard along the snow-covered sidewalks and in village coffee shops. The forecast at 9:30 a.m. called for snow showers into the afternoon with temperatures reaching the mid 30s.
