Orangetown Snow Update: Town Board Meeting Still On

Tonight's Orangetown Town Board meeting is still on despite snow falling in the area. Tell us about the weather's impact on you in the comments below and share your pictures of the snow on Patch.

The snow started to fall early this afternoon and there is a winter weather advisory for Rockland County until 6 a.m. Thursday. The National Weather Service forecast calls for three to six inches of snow, heavy at times, with winds from 40 to 60 miles per hour.

The winter weather brings another challenge to the area, which is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. At last report, 1,034 O&R customers in Orangetown were without power, including 650 in Pearl River. 

The Orangetown Board will meet as scheduled tonight, with a police commission at 7 p.m. and a meeting with public budget hearings at 8 p.m., but the hearing on the 2013 Orangetown budget will continue into the next town board meeting Nov. 13 so taxpayers who can't make it tonight will be able to attend. 

Pearl River Schools canceled all after-school activities after 5 p.m. and adult education classes for Wednesday. For more cancellations, go here.

Editor's note: The picture of the Pearl River sign attached to this report is from a previous snowfall in the area.

...and so it is a storm anew in Tappan, New York Tenderness and Temper A gossamer veil of wind, snow and light Settled and cloaked in crystal strokes of white So delicate be these touches upon fallen branches and bough Beauty shall we behold be the storm's silent vow Fury and calm be the mood of Nature at hand Ask I what forces be there presently in command Listen I to the night winds of November's storming path Hear I that a new dawning awaits beyond the wind's wrath Cold be the night as gusting winds from the north do blow Pristine be the falling and wind swept snow Tenderness and temper be this night's domain Nature's province in storming splendor holds its special claim. Rose Marie Raccioppi Poet Laureate Tappan, New York
