Was just reading your "this stupid cast" thread and was wondering what part of NY you are in?
We are 5 minutes from the NY border and havn't heard a thing about your storm on the news here confused Maybe it's all the war stuff mad
We lived through the ice storm of 98 and can sympathize with you. frown
Keep the faith and may the force be with you!!! smile

We are near Rochester, Lake Ontario area. There have been 7+ states helping in this sad situation.
Rochester claimed it wasn't as bad as the 1991 storm, but Rochester is 30 miles west. I don't don't believe we got a lot of newsworthy TV time, but I can tell you, I don't think it has ever been this horrible in my lifetime. We have been in a state of emergency since last Thursday. Maybe they lifted it today.

Some are still without electricity due to damage done to their houses and reconnection has caused arching and fires. SAD situation. Many counselers needed, to keep sanity, for some still in shelters.

I agree, the war made the headlines.

Thanks for asking, it's always nice to know others think about more than just the trivial things in life. smile

I receivd one phone call from a friend that mentioned, our lack of power was a preview to living in Belize. Warm weather abuse, I can do that ! wink

Do you know what the fireman said when the church burned down? confused
We are only about 3 hours away, in Cornwall Ont. and didn't hear a word about it.
And they say we have a free press. :rolleyes:
Glad to hear you are getting out from under, our thoughts are with you. wink
Maybe we can find out how many other boarders are in this area and have a AC party this summer? cool
If you like, Marty can give you our Email address.
All the best; smile

We have a summer cottage West and North of you guys, up 1-1/2 hours from Belleville ON. Just talked to a neighbor who said we have 2' of ice yet to melt but a 60 degree day up and going. We love that place in Summer but wouldn't want to have to stay there in Winter. Our Summer season starts mid-July!! Then when the geese start packing their tiny little suitcases to fly back down here, we'll be tagging along with them for the South Texas/Southern Belize style of winter.

We have a pair of Canada Geese that come here each Spring, we fed them tonight. It's SPRING when they come and more fun when they bring their little ones.
We look forward to the fifth of May, that's generally their first showing of their little gaggle. laugh
