The hurricane itself wasn't too bad, other than a lot of power outages, but the amount of rain it dumped into the area all funneled into the Mohawk River cause a surge of water 14' higher than normal, flooding everything and everyone not lucky enough to be elevated. Because of so many closed roads and traffic, I biked up and down the Mohawk in Schenectady, Scotia, and Glenville, shooting some video along the way. I was on the phone a lot so my apologies if some of my conversations made it into the audio. I tried including text in the video to let you know where I was filming if it wasn't obvious. Some of the locales are Jumpin Jacks, Collins Park, SCCC, the Stockade, Freemans Bridge Road, and the railroad bridge. Thanks for watching! Please share the link with anyone who might be interested!
