What’s Up Peekskill? Hurricane Humidity


There’s a woodworking event down at Dain’s Lumber all weekend, Jefferson Starship at the Paramount, mad science at the library, the other usual Peekskill shenanigans, and a Hurricane named after my grand mother pushing more of that dreaded humidity up here (yuk!). So get downtown and P-Rock your humidity away, but let’s give a P-Rockin’ stay-safe shout out to those in the Florence’s path.
