The sheep need the rubber boots for non conductive hoof wear due to the high voltage electric barrier fences while they are patrolling with the Bradley's and to pack away the cold mini beer cans while they are on duty in the guard towers. Wool is a very very good insulator for the beer by the way.

Dam......whooda thunk it. :crazy: :wacko: :funny:

Yup,

Wait till he finds out that a plow wont cut it up there.

I hope for this poor fellows sake he has a kind neighbor that sit down with him for coffee
and cake and explains why he needs a 70 plus horsepower 4 wheel drive mule with an all
weather cab,front end loader loaded tires and rear chains and an 8 foot rear mounted
snow caster if he is intent on living away from town.

If he was going to live in town I would recommend that he purchase a new Yamaha walk
behind track drive snow caster from one of the dealers in Ontario quickly if he plans on
being there next winter. He would get plenty of use for a Yamaha snow caster in the country too.

When looking to move off Long Island, we'd see ads in the news paper for "land upstate". Sick of living jammed into neighborhoods with 50 foot wide plots, I'd call the realtors and have them send us listings of places out in the country. Got a few from around Fulton and Baldwinsville area.

As I was looking at them, the wife was looking over my shoulder. She asked, "Why do they have outside doors on the second floor ?" When I said it was so they could get out in February, she said, "We are not moving there ! " :shock:

If ya love snow - then go. If not - then no ! :D

My mailing address is Fulton, NY but I live in the outskirts of the city. I can confirm information about the snow fall here, we get dumped on from Lake Ontario.

What kind of info are you looking for about the area? I see you already got some info about the State gun laws.

Yup, it reminds me of the pictures of the Great Northern Railroad Town of Wellington, Washington where the outhouses were two stories tall.
Wellington, Washington was where the worst railroad accident in American history occurred on March 1st, 1910 when 92 plus persons were injured or killed due to an avalanche on the eastern portal side of the first Cascade Tunnel. The last body was not thrown into Nasen Creek was found in May of that year. there were many snow shovelers that were not documented in employee rosters that could not be accounted for as they did not have a proper head count as many of them walked off the job down the mountain to Skykomish due to a pay dispute with James Oniel who was the Cascade Division superintendent for the areas from Skykomish to Cascade Tunnel Station. An Avalanche also occurred at Cascade Tunnel Station that also destroyed that railroad town as well the same night.

An Avalanche also occurred at the Canadian Pacific Railroad town of Rogers Pass, British Columbia that same week killing many snow shoveler's working for the Canadian Pacific Railway.

I hope I have remembered everything correctly and I apologize for any errors or omission's on my part remembering what I read of the period that week in History.
