Another bleak day like the movie set of a British, 19th century novel adaptation that ends in heartbreak. A morning of rain and an afternoon that’s overcast with layers of weather like someone couldn’t decide what set to use. A high of 66F, humid and highly cinematic.
Enjoy an afternoon of live music at Jim Rauter’s Farm in Halcott Center on September 11th, 2021 from 1pm to 7pm. Suggested donation is $20 per person which will be donated to WIOX Radio in Roxbury, NY. Each band will perform a 45-minute set with a 15-minute break in between. All musicians are donating their time and talent to support WIOX!
“This happens to be the 20th year after 9/11, and we will pay due respect,” writes Jim, “but it is also our 11th year of community radio in the Catskills on WIOX”. The radio station is planning a live broadcast of the event. They are hoping to raise $3,000, and would like to see attendance exceed 150 people.
Bring a chair and pack a picnic. There is plenty of room. The stage will be built off the barn and there will be a lot of parking on the 11-acre hayfield adjoining the barn.The line-up includes the following: Sue’s Garage (classic rock, blues, country); Josh Roy Brown & Friends (country dobro); Adam Ippolito Quartet (used to play with John Lennon, Kool & The Gang); Loren Daniels Trio with our own Andy Cahill; The Unmentionables (original rock from Jersey), and Flannel Jam (90’s covers, also coming up from NJ)”.
Address: Pleasant View Farm, 741 Route 3, Halcott Center, NY. Directions: approximately 4 1/2 miles north of Fleischmanns, take Lake Street off Main Street at Sam’s Country Store in Fleischmanns.
Blazing sunshine and blue skies with a few stray, wispy clouds. A high of 74F.
A thick carpet of oppressive, threatening cloud all day, but somehow the sun got through this occasionally for bursts of hot sunshine. A high of 67F.
Another moody day with Ida retreating. Wet, cloudy and a high of 69F.
Not a good start to September: a few inches of rain from Hurricane Ida, overcast and muggy with a high of 66F. A thirst-quenching day for the farm.
