Willow Trees Fall

A nor’easter that hit the Highlands overnight on Oct. 29-30 destroyed three weeping willow trees at the Cold Spring riverfront. The North Highlands weather station reported more than 3 inches of rain, along with wind gusts of up to 22 mph.

    The willows give many of us great memories down by the dock. I’m glad we have a Tree Committee in the village, and I trust they will propose good replacements.

    Too bad, I hate to see trees lost. Willows are so beautiful.
