Winter Storm Stella hits the NYC Watershed

Winter Storm Stella dropped over 3′ on the NYC Watershed region March 14-15, 2017. The region was slammed with the historic storm Tuesday morning through Wednesday night and a State of Emergency was declared with schools, businesses and roads being closed for two days. What didn’t close were our farms. Farmers battled the storm to feed livestock and clear snow. Milk pick-ups were delayed and a few barns collapsed, but Upstate New Yorker’s are tough and prevailed in the hazardous conditions. Check out the scenes around the watershed in the calm after the storm. All photos were taken on Thursday March 16, 2017 (photos by Heather Magnan).
