Freddy: thanks for the coffee and eggs, I'll pass on the sausage, I love the stuff, but it is guaranteed heartburn in three hours..
so I have learned not to indulge myself.
I've never had ChokeCherry jelly, in our area, chokecherry's are trees, with a small berry, but I don't see the birds going after them very often, they must not tasste very good.. a real cherry tree however, is burried in birds once the cherries are getting ripe.
What a week !! Reading about the flooding really make me think just how bad Mother Nature can mess up our lives..
I've been monitoring the flooding in Hershey, I recognize almost all the areas that are shown on U-tube Videos available on the net. One intersection of HershyPark Dr and 322, of which there are at least 6 Videos, I've been through every October at least 10-12 times. I've bought fuel many times at the 'Sheetz' gas station. I've had dinner at the [underwater] PizzaHut.
Thankfully my buddy and family who lives in the Hershey area, moved two years ago out of the neighborhood he had lived in for more than a decade, and bought a place in the country, on high ground. He and his family were stranded for awhile, he coould not get out to any stores, etc for about a day.. Had to get creative with driving routes in order to get around. But everyone and all the possessions/buildings are ok.. If he'd not moved, it would be a different story, his old neighborhood had lots of flood damage, and many were stranded for days.
I can see that the AACA national meet in Hershey is going to be a bit different this year. If the Swatara Creek damaged the bridges any, it will be a driving nightmare. The Hersheypark is all paved now, but the public parking area was on the Swatara Creek's floodplain, and it still is under several feet of water. So I have no clue what will be done for public parking.. It's always a problem, this year a really big problem.. I guess they will have 2wd and 4wd-only parking areas.
Freddy: how about an update on your electrical grid, it's final appearance, it's performance and any suggestions for those who are contemplating doing the same?
Time to get to work.
