As we get ready to head into another weekend, some parts of the Hudson Valley are still dealing with the aftermath of Winter Storm Landon. The ice that set in with the storm last Friday (February 4, 2022) caused significant damage to property and trees. Plus the cold temperatures over the weekend resulted in the ice hanging on longer than expected.

Many of our area towns are still in the midst of cleaning up after Landon. After Central Hudson and other utilities were able to restore power to their customers who lost service, it then became time to focus on clean up. Some hard areas are getting help from their local highway departments.

The Town of Esopus released information today that they will be helping property owners dispose of debris from the storm. Starting Thursday, February 10, 2022, the Town of Esopus will be doing Winter Strom Landon Brush Clean Up over the next two weeks. If you don't live in Esopus, chances are your area is doing something similar, check in with your town hall.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
