VOLUNTEERS SURVEY BLIZZARD DAMAGE ON THACHER ISLAND

A delegation of Thacher Island volunteers, finally able to visit the island after the February 10 blizzard, discovered substantial damage to the boathouse at the top of the landing ramp. The damage included eastern and northern walls dislodged from their foundations, siding torn loose, the rear door torn off its track, and interior shelving knocked loose. Wind and high water also deposited boulders and debris across a broad swath of ground. Snowdrifts prevented the volunteers, Syd Wedmore, Paul St. Germain, Peter Bergholz, and Bill Lee, from inspecting other structures on the island.  Oddly enough, the water that surged through the boathouse did not disturb the American flag that still lay neatly folded on a dislodged table in the middle of the jumbled debris.
