Know what, that's not even funny. But, I'm not going to your level of inmaturity.
Until you know someone, please don't make comments about them. I am concerned about the people in New York (that would be why I couldn't sleep until I heard from our next door neighbors. Other than saying that, I really don't have to defend myself to you.
But, you can think anything you want about me ... I could really care less because I'm sure the people here really aren't amused either.
Thank you so much for your concern for all our people here in Delaware Ct. You are truly amazing and I thank you for what you said. I also sent one and was amazed that anyone could think of their home before they could think of the losses our families have endured. I assure you the people are not amused by the comments. The devesatation here is unbelievable. Thank you again for your concern.

I have to start by saying my heart and all of my well wishes for the entire region cannot be expressed enough. I am a Bouchoux. My roots are there. I grew up in Hancock (well French Woods of course!) and Deposit. I now live in Jupiter, FL. I had the fortune of being on vacation, in Deposit, at my Dad's house for the FLOOD. Our family home is on the Delaware (well it is separated by the driveway and what my Milwaukee, Wisconsin born husband (city boy) lovingly refers to as a paved cow path (Airport Rd), that's how he refers to most of our roads, but it is one of his favorite places in the world to be!) The reason that I say I had the fortune of being there for the flood is because at the time it was down right scary! It was my Dad, my sister, her daughter (2yrs.), myself and my two boys (7 & 9yrs.)with the Delaware River actually surrounding/rushing around our home for hours. Our family has lived there for almost 25 yrs and we have never seen anything remotely close to what happened this year. Thank goodness we were safe, the living quarters are above a 1 1/2 story garage. I go in to such detail because I am sure that 'daisy' in Carle Place, LonGGGisland, NY for some reason can't comprehend what it is like to be so isolated or although I'm sure that she did work very hard on that vacation home so did the many locals that first had the feeling 'Thank God we are alive' immediately followed by the reallty of their first home that is their shelter and livelihood, that home that gave them a place to feed their families and sleep at night was destroyed. But while reading the thread I realize I was lucky because I was there and knew my Dad was OK!(along with all of my other 'family') as opposed to many of the postees that didn't know what was happening with their loved ones. Then, I was lucky because I was able to run away home to Florida (once the roads opened we had driven up) to my dry bed, clean clothes and towels, the ability to shower and the ability to wash the filthy mud caked clothes and shoes and dry my feet that hadn't had a chance to dry out for the first time in days! I had place I could drive to with out going 20+ miles out of my way for bread, milk and gas. I am still feeling guilty about that. That's what brought me to the thread because I was looking for how the region was recovering (My Dad is the stereotypical area stoic and nothing new, everything is alright.) Reading the thread I was not surprised; but marveling at the way people from all over the country were working together to ensure their neighbors were taken care of and then...I was absolutely blown away by 'daisy's' post. I went back and tried to see what might provoke or warrant a post so absoloutly inappropiate. I can only think that maybe she had something else going on in her head that didn't come across in the post or maybe it was an out of context kinda thing?!?!? I just have to say that if for some reason it was truly what she meant to say than Joan take heart in the fact that the Hancock area only has 'daisy' from Carle Place NY as a temporary resident.

Hang in there...

My husband and I have a house on Cadosia Road in Hancock. All we've managed to get from any of the police while calling is that there is "extreme flooding" and that we wouldn't be able to get there from New Jersey tonight. Anyone know any current information? We're dying down here now knowing what's going on to our house.
From what we have been lead to believe Cadosia no longer exists! its been terrible here and we have had no media coverage from our fellow sister stations in NYC, do we have to riot and loot for the press to be interested? People helping people isnt news worthy?

When we went to check out the area on July 1st and again on July 3rd ... it was pretty horrible. We had to deal with the National Guard to even get onto Cadosia Road on the first and then we had to deal with the state cops to get on to the road on the third. The area is pretty much completely destroyed. Houses are all over, debris is all over, and it's just very very sad to see.

yes, it is fixed. the bridge was not damaged, road before it, near the 374 corner was washed out, undermined or damaged. It has been fixed by what I've heard from the local folk (I haven't tried it myself, as I understand that Hancock is still pretty much a mess)

Hello Jeannie, Carl here from Fishs Eddy. Read your message. I am sure by now that you have got in touch with your parents by now. Were they all ok ?? Scarey feeling Hu ?? How about all the dammaged stores in the town of Handcock, sooo Bad !! My flood dammage on the mountain was so bad that I lost my Entrence Drivway and all of my mountasin trails from the hard rain. It will take a year to bring back the natural beauty of my hunting lodge. Anyway I love Hancock & Fishs Eddy as I am sure you do. It is nature at its best !!
