    Moving back is going to take some adjusting. I'm going from 90% sunny days to what seems to be 90% overcast days.

    Hopefully, the pattern breaks a bit...

    New Philly?

    My ex is from that area. I've never seen such an area ravaged my economics and drugs. It's worse than any inner city without so much as a hint of support. It's a travesty and an embarrassment for our country to just write off such huge sections.

    Yup. New Philly. Lots of areas like that. Tamaqua is trying to shed that image, and is being somewhat successful, but the region sure does have its troubles.

  3. My poor daughter. She called me because shes bored to tears. She's a teacher and took a part time summer job at our local ice cream parlor/mini golf course, and she said she's only had two customers all day.

    I guess the rain and cold, plus folks with Mother's Day restaurant reservations, is keeping people away.

    They're seeing them in Norman Oklahoma and as far south as Georgia so I believe it

    They're saying we might even be able to see them here in Arizona. It's not completely dark yet, so I don't know.

    As for Meyer's pics, that's pretty damn impressive for Pennsylvania!

    I dragged my air conditioner upstairs last night at 8:30 and installed the damned thing. Forecast for the rest of the month now appears cold. I should have just dropped the thing on my head.

    If all goes according to plan, I should be back in PA on May 28th. You all better get that cold weather out of there before my arrival...lol

    Da fuck? Sandy tore off all my facia and had water pouring through my windows. I had s $9,000 insurance damage because Sandy. 

    Yeah, open areas and high elevations had problems. Tamaqua, however, sits in a protected, upside down, V shaped valley. 

    From my house, I could hear the non-stop roar of the wind on the hilltops surrounding the borough. Yet, even though there was widespread damage and power failures all around us, we came through virtually unscathed. 

    There was very little damage in the borough proper, and while the power flickered a few times, the lights stayed on during the entire event.

    Even standing outside, there were few wind gusts, let alone sustained high velocity wind. It was more like a normal, breezy, post FROPA day/night, as opposed to a post tropical hurricane.

    Low of 37.  It's my wife's birthday today and she wants to go golfing.  Of course, what she really means by "go golfing" is that she wants to ride along in a cart and drink box wine.  Should be a beautiful day to hit the links. 

    If she's gonna drink, you should make the day double interesting and let HER drive the golf cart...
