The whirring sound of the village’s “Bandit Intimidator” wood chipper is being heard throughout Cooperstown today, as crews, including Assistant DPW Superintendent Chris Satriano, above, finish the cleanup after Saturday’s thunderstorm. Heavy rains and wind struck shortly before 6 p.m. for only a minute or two, but wreaked outsized damage. Among the homes narrowly escaping serious damage is Celia Lamb’s on Linden Avenue, inset. The storm knocked over an oak slightly to the north of the house, leveraged up the sidewalk, but beyond that even missed a birdhouse in its path. “We were very fortunate,” Mrs. Lamb said. “It missed the house, it missed the car and it missed the trailer” that a tenant rents.
