Observations on economics, the academy, the wider world, and things that run on rails.
THE FLYING TURNS IS NOT A FLUME RIDE. News reports are comparing the current flooding in the Upper Susquehanna Valley to Hurricane Agnes (the storm that sank the Erie-Lackawanna.) The Knoebels Grove amusement park has some high water marks in the center of the grove for Agnes and other floods. They may have to add another one. Here's the current amusement park web page.
Due to some EXTREME flooding in the park from our last tropical storm, we're sorry to announce that Knoebel's is currently closed until further notice.
