  1. There are so many trees in Cooperstown that dead or close to being dead, it’s no wonder there are trees down with the storms. I was recently in the hospital there and was shocked when I was released and rode home. There are so many that are close to the roads and power lines there. Scary driving through those roads. Oh, and those trees are Not pretty!!
