Recovering the Roads, Post-Irene: The Video

Big trucks, big rocks, clawing roads from rivers…. If it isn’t (I’m tempted here to write “ain’t”) enough to fill you with the love of the fine folks who’ve been fixing the roads, this video from Jo Ostrander shows the incredible work it’s taken throughout the Catskills to recover from Irene. Oh, and there’s a commercial country soundtrack. Downstaters beware, moving here has given me a secret love of mainstream country music and most things redneck. The people who’ve repaired the roads have worked 7 days a week, pulling long days. Remember them the next time you drive up. And those machines.
