My Home Town

If you've heard about the flooding of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers this week, here is an interesting video that shows some of the devastation. While the news reports say Binghamton, the mess was county-wide. And even though we have high school rivalries, if you live in this area, the entire county is your home. You may be in any of these towns on a daily basis.

The first Westover shot shows where my Dad worked. The first Front St. shot is just a couple blocks from my Aunt's house. (And for my girls, the Chenango Bridge and golf course pictures? That's where we get off Route 88 to go to Gam and Bop's house).



From what I hear, the entire county is like Vermont the week before. ALL the tributaries flooded, too, so roads and bridges are wiped out everywhere. Its going to be awhile before this gets fixed. Mother Nature sure is crazy this year.

Wow! We just never know when Nature will go wild and knock us humans off our high horse. We've certainly had our share country-wide in one way or another this year. I hope everyone made it through okay.

Yowza--we've had some flooding along the Housatonic River, but nothing to that extent. Hope Mother Nature decides to back off a bit until everyone has dried out.
