Yep, precisely 06--this is apparently surpassing that crest down around Binghamton--suns out here now & creeks have calmed to a mediocer roar--we'll see what the next 48 hrs bring, but I think we're pretty well done with the serious stuff. I'm about 20--30 minutes south of Cortland. The Tioughnioga is raising hell down in Marathon. That's my main river. Everything from up on the hill here has to go there. My shovel looks real similar to that last post pix ;)

that dozer is almost 50 tons...

Yes. my beat up old Cat (22 ton) 955h has wide tracks and big grousers and only exerts 9 psi plus a flotation effect if you keep moving. Goes where others fear to tread and i need that to survive.

I need to email my neice in Owego and see how that town is doing. She lives up on a mountain but her mom lives in town and barely escaped the last historic flood.

Plumber/ boiler installer was over there poking around. I just told him I took 25 gallons of water out of the system, and then another 5 to reset the auto feed. Then I told him his Taco circulator lasts one season. :lol: Then I left, I was sensing an accusatory stare from the guy.

Looking at the radar last night it looked more like NJ was getting lucky and NEPA and NYS were getting slammed!

Your farm is still beautiful Fred, even though it's a little damp right now 8-)


Is this the biblical flood? I've read that God doesn't interfere in human affairs, and wonder if it's the fault of the human collective consciousness. :cry:
Innyway, I bet Al Gore is jumping for joy these days.....

I hear ya Sam, about 1/2 hour of this torrential rain would put out all the fires in Texas :!:

Smitty's even getting hit up in Mass. :!:

We are up about 1900ft so only the small streams are roaring here. Down toward Scranton Wilkes Barre they are having it pretty bad, most likely worse than the flood of 72'. Go to WNEP tv16 website and scroll down to the 3 slideshows, gives you an idea, looks like most everyone is flooded down there.
