NEW YORK - Stripped of hurricane rank, Tropical Storm Irene spent the last of its fury Sunday, leaving treacherous flooding and millions without power - but an unfazed New York and relief that it was nothing like the nightmare authorities feared. Slowly, the East Coast surveyed the damage, up to $7 billion by one private estimate. For many the danger had not passed: Rivers and creeks turned into torrents tumbling with tree limbs and parts of buildings in northern New England and Upstate New York.

Back in June, Joann Taylor thinned out her irises in Portland, Ore., packed about 18 pounds of extra rhizomes into a box, and shipped them off to Cheltenham Township, where she grew up. These irises are special, descended from a variety planted by John McDermott, Taylor's great-grandfather, more than a century ago on the 49-acre estate belonging to the Elkins family, for whom the Cheltenham neighborhood Elkins Park is named. The estate, known as Elstowe Manor, was on Ashbourne Road. McDermott, an Irish immigrant, was the Elkinses' gardener, and as Taylor recounts the story, he loved these flowers so much he planted them at his own house on Beech Avenue.

The 19th century had the Lincoln-Douglas debates. The 20th century brought Kennedy-Nixon. And now we have just experienced a forensic masterpiece to define our times: the Clinton-Sanders Debate Debate. This particular rhetorical showdown was not a back-and-forth about issues, appropriately enough, but an argument about whether to debate - and when, and where. It began Jan. 30, when the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign challenged Hillary Clinton to debate him in Brooklyn on April 14. Clinton suggested the Democrats instead debate in Pennsylvania, on Long Island, or in Upstate New York.

NEW HOPE Gail Pedrick remembers when floodwaters rose nearly four feet in her living room - and she's worried it's going to happen again. Pedrick, 76, whose New Hope home was one of thousands damaged by the swollen Delaware River in 2004, 2005, and 2006, has been carefully eyeing reservoir levels all winter in Upstate New York. She's worried that the reservoirs - which were filled beyond capacity during those floods - will again be near or beyond capacity later this spring, leaving her and others downstream vulnerable to the sort of surging tides that caused nine deaths and an estimated $70 million worth of damage between 2004 and 2006.

Winding through a rotary and down a hill, just past a thin strip of bars and restaurants, it would be easy to pass by the Glens Falls Civic Center without blinking. The nondescript, brick building is nestled in this tiny New York hamlet at the foot of the Adirondack mountains, located just north of Albany and Saratoga Springs. It looks more like a high-school gymnasium than temporary home to some of the Flyers' brightest budding stars this winter during the NHL lockout. Sean Couturier doesn't mind.
