I've been by that location on West Kill Road many times and know right where the pipeline crosses the road. Propane, unlike natural gas, tends to sink -- which is why the lower portion of West Kill Road burnt, rather than farther up in the open farm country where the pipeline is actually located.
Yesterday, the Route 719 express bus did not show up on time for the 5:10 run out to Altamont.
While no single bus running late can be attributed directly to global warming, changing climate is known to cause the buses to be late.
Climate change increases the severity of storms, which can cause flooding, increased numbers of car crashes, closed roads, heavier snow falls, and other traffic delays, which can cause the bus to run late.
