You should have bought a boat instead, you should know how many people need to be rescued or die driving thru high water.
Not to mention the fine and the cost of the rescue, but if they have enough $$$ to buy several large vehicles that should float, so for it.

I wonder if my special friend Sean Brown was off Exit 45 with his "pole?!" If he was, I am very sad I missed it. ;-(

I am sorry but anyone that chooses to drive past a sign warning of high water ahead should be left there to drown. The fire departments shouldn't have to waste their volunteers time, and the area's resources to rescue their dumb azzes. The signs are there for a reason. People think that they are invicible. Water is a powerful creature that will overpower you in a moments time.

PennDOT employees are experts at doing absolutely nothing. The culture at PennDOT is frozen in the 1950's. It is their culture to make sure that they maintain an exhaused and outdated road system while development has occured and will occured. PennDOT's philosophy is to do nothing and blame everyone else. Ron Young, while a nice guy, makes the same belabored statements over and over. PennDOT needs to be overhauled from both a practical and institutional/cultural perspective to be more receptive and understanding of change and responsibility. Until then, expect nothing.

When I was in high school - in 1973 - we were taught that every acre of land that was paved over or roofed over was an acre's worth of rainfall that had to go somewhere. Of course, that was in the days when there were hippies and the youth my age were being told to "make love, not war".

Perhaps if we grew a few more vineyards and sold out to a few fewer logistics firms we'd be better off. Sadly - or happily - the Lehigh Valley is not at only at the confluence of two rivers but also at the junction of the Northeast Extension, I-78, US 22, and US 222. Plus the Norfolk Southern...

We've paid for abandoning our heritage. I have to spend a lot of time out of the area in order to afford what I have.

"Common Sense" said; When you turn every square acre of farmland into a cookie cutter housing development, what do you expect?

It didn't take long for a local yokel to blame NEw Yorkers and New JErseyite for the flooding.

First, outsiders were responsible for the high price of food (we don't eat beef jerkey at $25.00 a pound). Also, we don't eat scrapple or ring baloney. Then it was the price of gas, property taxes, health care, etc.

If you can't afford to live in the Valley move to Bradford County.

The point people make is that before outsiders moved in, we could afford to live here.
