Sunday, May 18, 2014 Day 8 Closure on our Section of the Erie Canal will be 7-10 Days!!

We had this early morning notification from the NY Canal System:  Closure in the Erie Canal from Lock 24 to lock 30 in Macedon for 7-10 days!!  And that's if we don't get any more rain.  Yikes, that's  our section.
We are safely tied up between locks 28B and 29.  My  questions:  is it 7-10 more days or since we've been stuck here for 3, only 4-7 days?

After that bit of news, we needed to walk to Dunkin' Donuts and eat some sweet, sugary donuts!  That will definitely make me feel better.  Boy are they busy...people were mainly buying their flavored coffee and by-passing the donuts...not us!!   From there we walked east, crossed the bridge that spanned lock 28B, along the canal, and back to our boat.  I guess we'll be here for a while and just have to enjoy the down time on the Erie Canal!
