Hi Senecus;<quoted text>
Crews are coming from many different areas of the country, the region can use all the help it can get at this time. Cell towers are still spotty in many areas, but my brother has been able to get out some texts,and thing ain't pretty. Some inlaws almost had their generator stolen right off their back patio, a neighbor stopped them(who btw they are sharing power with). Roving gangs looking for easy pickings in the confusion and in another's misfortune.
This event is a reason I left(one of many), Long Island is a bottleneck through NYC , the city is your only way out and off the Island should a disaster strike(or, you could "borrow" someones boat and go to Conn.). 9/11 was a wake up call, I remember telling family members I'll be stepping up plans to get back "home" (Pa.)- and was within a year and a half.
See you changed your avatar too, a picture of the 'back 40'?
I never realized all of this about the bottleneck.To be honest know very little about the east at all,have not traveled much.
Epi told me alot of things about the east.Someone I know said to me today they thought the gasoline going to go thru the roof price wise and would be down right robbery of the pockets.Because of the shut down in the east.Well good someone stopped them from getting the generator.Seems there is no end to the gang business and no honor amoung theifs either.Real sad state of affairs.I seen on tv where some were saying they would rebuild and my thought was get out of a place like that.Plus is another storm coming in announced on the news tonight.
I think you made a really super wise move and leaving there for Pa.
Sometimes it is just best to go especially when ones life is on the line.Was some people who moved here after the 9/11 and they love it out here.My propane man moved here from tenn last year and now is going back to get his brother to bring out too.
When they packed up out here to go and help back east let me tell you think they packed everything but the kitchen sink and that too most probably went with them.Showed them packing on the news and they were not playin around getting things done.News people filmed them leaving and looked on tv like one long convey of trucks going out of here to the east.
Yes I stuck it in a avatar cause I always talking on the other thread about the weather and the rainbows over that mountain.When it snows out here that mountain stand in pure splendor.I seen hail on it that looked like snow.And I watched the lightning out here pop the ground too.There are big open spaces out here one can walk or ride for miles and not see anyone on a road for miles.I love theses mountains and open spaces God blessed me every day I been here in them.Have a good evening,stay,safe God Bless.
