All of you who follow my blog know that the only thing I love more than Due, and almost as much as Mom - is my beloved Central Park.
When Mom got back from the Park on Tuesday night, we knew the storm was bad. We could see the flashing and hear the crack of the lightening, we (Mom) jumped at the claps of thunder that seem to go on forever. We had no idea how damaging it was. Over 200 trees were felled or severely damaged in Central Park. Beautiful trees, American Elms, Pin Oak, Chestnuts, and Tulips - many estimated to be 80-100 years old.
I know this is a "dog blog", but a great deal of this dog's life is centered around our adventures in Central Park. The destruction suffered by our Park is heartbreaking to us.
Mom and I also know that times are tough all over - and everyone has a lot of good causes they support. IF you can - please think about donating to the Central Park Conservatory.
The Conservatory has been operating on a reduced budget since January, they need our help now more than ever. I know I like to brag about Central Park being MY Park - but it really does belong to everyone who lives AND visits this beautiful city.
Mom and I are hoping to make it to the Park on Saturday (weather permitting). We'll give you an update on the clean up efforts. The Park will comeback - this is New York afterall - a little wind is not going to keep us down!
