Central Park may lose 1,000 trees to storm!

The heavy rain-ice-snow storm that hit New York City on Saturday October 29th may have destroyed over 1,000 trees. Awful. I have not been there yet, but plan to go tomorrow. Poor trees! And it was promising to be a gorgeous season of foliage. And hope the migrating birds got out the night before.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
