Weirdest things commuters have seen in the Hudson Valley

I love the Hudson Valley but it can get weird fast. It seems to get even weirder during commute hours.

Why is it? Maybe it’s because we’re stuck in our cars, hopefully without distraction, so we notice more of it. The other day I saw the Grim Reaper waiting for the bus on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie.

Does it get any weirder than that? You would be surprised. This is indeed the case. Here are some of the most absurd things reported by Hudson Valley commuters on our Facebook page:
