The "Frog Days Of Summer" have been hot ones, and dry ones. The lack of rain has caused some burnt lawns and low water levels.

Here's news about the boat launch at Hinkley from our sister station, WIBX:

The New York Power Authority has closed the boat launch at the Hinckley Reservoir and Dam due to low water levels.

The Authority will continue to monitor the reservoir until the water depth returns to safe levels for launching.

The nearby canoe and kayak launch will remain open."
