Summer Camp

Yesterday was the 1st day of Summer Camp for Jacob & Hannah. I was so worried that Jacob would find the transition hard since it was a new place for him. Luckily my boy is a whole lot less shy than his mom'cause he walked right in and made a friend...another Jacob. Both he and Hannah had a great time so I think I made a good decision. What a load off.

Now I just have to worry about being a chaperone next week on a trip to the zoo. ;)

Storm Damage

On 6/10/2008 a storm went through Sandy Creek, NY and winds at Greene Point were clocked at 109 MPH. We got off very lucky with a broken window, a small area on the right side where the siding peeled back and the antenna has been flattened. Our neighbors did not fair as well. There was a lot of damage at the point with a number of trailers tipped over, rooves peeled off and many trees down. The power was out for about 2 days but the water system is the real problem. The trees that were ripped from the ground also ripped the water pipes out. The ELMS lost 75% or more of their trees and they aren't sure when they will reopen for business. The trees at Greene Point look like they were twisted off.
