Storms!

Recommended Posts

On Thursday the N27 was running approx one hour late due to flooding and traffic signals out. It all started after 4pm when the skies just opened up, lots of lightning and power outages. Glen Cove rd quickly became a parking lot. The N27 normally heading up to GC passing through Greenvale at around 4:30pm didn't pass through until after 5pm, then after that no buses passed through until just after 6pm. The main reason was Roslyn road was shut down and there were huge traffic jams. Also the light at 25a and Glen Cove road was out.

The 5:25pm outta Glen Cove didnt show up until 6:45pm, and when it came it was packed. I got on the bus right behind that one, which was completely empty. We detoured and took the LIE service road west to Roslyn road instead of Harbor Hill, bypassing the RR station area, where the construction normally makes a mess of things, I was told it was closed because of flooding and problems at Roslyn RR.

Also saw 3 N20's heading toward Hicksville around 6:30pm...3 in a row! The storms wreaked havoc, thats for sure! Made it home pretty quickly though, left Greenvale around 6:50pm and made it to Roosevelt Field by 7:20pm and got on the N22 to Hicksville right away and made it home just after 7:30pm. The N22 ahead of us broke down on Maple ave and Ellison ave though, and it got SRO for just a very short ride to Post ave.
