Green flag, yellow flag , red flag

Ridgewood NJ, according to Marcia Ringel of Preserve Graydon ,the Summer weather is quixotic. How do you know when Graydon has been temporarily closed because of thunder or lightning?
Look for the flag: red means closed, green means open, as at the Shore. A yellow flag means that Graydon is open provisionally; patrons should be prepared to leave in case the predicted bad weather strikes. (No rip tides.)
Notification of closure due to weather was requested at a Village Council meeting by longtime resident Boyd Loving, and the village followed up with the flags. Maybe in the future the triggering of the lightning detection system could be connected to the website? Or sent automatically to members via email? On the wish list.
