Many Chenango County residents had a change of plans this weekend

CHENANGO COUNTY – Traditionally, the Fourth of July weekend is spent by the pool, around the barbecue, and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.

Not this year.

Brenda Caldwell, Bainbridge, spent her holiday weekend recovering from last week’s flood.



“It’s been a horrible, horrible mess,” she said. “The main road to get here (route 7) is still closed. My land is completely devastated.”

Caldwell said she and her family usually host a reunion, which brings visitors from as far away as New Mexico. This year, she told them all to reschedule.

“My brother-in-law still came from New Hampshire to help us clean up,” she said. “We weren’t sure how he was going to get here, but thankfully, he found a way.”
