September 20, 2011 15:15:02 MV Deer Hunter   I haved called the Local DEC and explained the tree down on shears rd. on the state lands and he told me that he will check it out,.I guess He didnt care that it could be un safe or very dangerous when it fells and land in top of a car or a hunter, hiker, or a child riding a bike ! I think thats what they are waiting for, some one get hurt and then fix it,. But If I or any of my family gets hurt I will assure I will file a law suit to the county,state,town, the DEC, of wrong doing. Haved file a few compliants but nothing at all is being done. What else can I do ??? Please Help.. any advise ???
September 20, 2011 10:15:25 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Next time you\'re in town, Tony, and have some time, I\'ll give you a guided tour!
September 20, 2011 09:30:09 Tony - CR-20   Never did Grumpy...hope it lasts you forever! Problem is...this has to support the propane delivery truck plus my vehicles and it has to be well built.
September 20, 2011 08:41:11 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Hey Tony! Some years back I had a little bridge built across the small stream which also turns into a raging mini-cateract when the rains get bad. Have you ever seen my little bridge on the South part of my property? It was constructed using a good number of railroad ties and has, so far, held up pretty well. I don't usually take automobiles across it; my golf car is its usual traffic. Its cost was in the hundreds only.
September 19, 2011 11:41:23 Wonderer   OK,Taxpayer,then what is the town or ranger to take it down.Also that section of road is not paved or town maintained,I ask if those owners on that piece of road pay the taxes as everybody else , how come is not paved , I wonder are they paying less,are they entitle to have that road paved,since they pay taxes,are they been short change by the town. Just wondering how come they have not complaint,it is like 5 propeties been harm by this.well i guess if they dont cry they wound get anything done.
September 19, 2011 10:16:03 Tony - CR-20   No harm done "What?" and no apology necessary. Thanks for the heads up about the Contractors. The reason it's so much is because we are extending it a little more and that will require new steel "I" beams and decking. Plus the fact that it's a total new design. Not going with the concrete abutment wall because there is nothing to hold it in the ground. Anyway...stop by for a drink when it's done! Enjoy the Fall people!
September 19, 2011 08:52:11 taxpayer   power companies only remove trees that will fall on their lines, the others are of no concern to them. Trees that may fall on town or county roads are the responsibility of the town or county .
September 19, 2011 07:22:09 Wonderer   Power company took down a bunch of trees and limps on Shears,begins wjere road ends up to Ponderosa,but the one tree across the road was not touch,I wonder are they waiting to fall on someone now the hunting is coming up? then run to take it down.I wonder.
September 19, 2011 01:18:55 what?   Tony - CR-20; My apologies, and thanks for your clarification on the situation. I wasn't "Know your facts before you shoot your mouth off." I always try to deal with facts and I was actually writing in general not just at you. My thought, why does the Govt. seek profit on someones misfortune? A low interest loan? Why isn't it zero interest if your going have to pay it back? I hope you looked into more than one quote for rebuild, $25k seems like an awful lot for a small bridge. Just a little warning local contractors (not all of them but some) milk city people because they all know what you would pay downstate.
September 18, 2011 21:42:20 Tony - CR-20   It seems like this Fall will be a quick change over. Enjoy the colors while you can Observer. As for that "stream"...I love the property and the way the house is situated but I would never recommend to anyone to purchase property with any type of flowing water on it! The bridge will cost about 25K to replace and construction starts tomorrow.
September 18, 2011 18:13:11 Observer   Tony CR-20 I also lost part of the back lawn or bank and it washed out part of the sluice on one end of my driveway. My lawn is still swampy and spongy. I have seen that stream by your house really raging. And I can really see how it could wash out a bridge over it. I traveled over Beach Hill many many times while working at the Scintilla and traveling from North Sanford. Actually I can remember as a teenager catching some fish out of that stream. You have selected a great piece of land to upgrade to a primary home. Some falls the foliage around us can be extremely colorful. I do not think this is going to be one of those falls.
September 18, 2011 17:19:20 Tony - CR-20   BTW...congratulations on making contact with her Grumpy. Technology is a wonderful thing!
September 18, 2011 17:17:19 Tony - CR-20   Wish you were right Observer but the small stream that crosses my property becomes "raging rapids" whenever there is large amounts of rain...especially 3 days worth like we had recently. Don't even know why I'm explaining this to you but I just wanted you all to know that some parts of town WERE effected by the down pour.
September 18, 2011 15:05:15 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Nam Kyung in Beijing! I think I\'ve mentioned before that my niece Nam Kyung Kim, who made many friends here and at Sidney High School while she lived with us for three and a half years, is currently in Beijing, learning Chinese. This morning, we were finally able to connected via computer. For over an hour we were able to converse and see each other in real-time. She has been gone from here for 83 days now and I think she became even prettier! On a cute note: she was wqearing her SIDNEY ATHLETCS t-shirt.
September 18, 2011 12:58:02 Observer   Tony CR 20- That was not the flood that washed out your bridge. It was a large fish swimming upstream and hit it. We don't have floods on this end of Masonville.
September 18, 2011 12:15:31 Tony - CR-20   To \"What?\"...rebuilding the home to be my Primary Residence. Plus...I'm not looking for a FEMA handout...looking to get low interest loan to pay for the replacement. Know your facts before you shoot your mouth off.
September 18, 2011 00:33:15 what?   Good post Masonville Resident, "no one here needs help that is certainly needed elsewhere in our county."
September 18, 2011 00:27:28 what?   And there goes some tax dollars to a SEASONAL home!! Kinda like "We don't have to pay for it it's coming from a grant (tax payer money out of our pockets,money from China we are broke)! Obama and Fema will help us out ! Hard working taxpayer money hard at work,,,thank you China!! Maybe someday we will wake up and help each other out as a community to those that NEED instead of dishing our tax payer money to those who want it.
September 17, 2011 23:33:25 Tony - CR-20   D A M is censored...WOW LOL
September 17, 2011 23:32:14 Tony - CR-20   I lost my bridge that leads to my property on CR-20 and I'm putting in a claim. *CENSORED* floods darn washed it away! BTW...we were declared a town that qualifies for assistance.
September 17, 2011 18:02:55 Masonville Resident   Maybe no one in Masonville will try to get something for nothing from FEMA since we were not classified as a disaster town, therefore no one here needs help that is certainly needed elsewhere in our county. But there are always those who thinks a way of life is something for nothing ...
September 17, 2011 11:17:32 Observer   "The foolish man built his house upon the flood plain. The wise man built his house upon the mountain. Along came the floods and washed the foolish man's house down the river while the wise man's house stood firm. But the foolish man knew the taxpayers would rebuild his house through FEMA and it would be bigger and better. Guess he was not so foolish after all!" (thanks to Matthew 7:24-27 {paraphrased})
September 16, 2011 09:29:20 part time resident   hopefully no one in our town will take undeserved advantage of FEMA and turn in false claims. There are so many people that have lost everything and they are the ones who should receive the help. Some times people will think this is a way to get new furnaces or washers and dryers, when they have water in their basements each time the rain is heavy because they just do no maintenence to their homes.
September 16, 2011 04:39:00 what?   bertimouse; Obama's “American Jobs Program” consists primarily of spending $450 billion,and eventually probably more than $1 trillion total, on temporary jobs for UNION (a little tit for tat kickback for the big business union special interest lobbyists)workers, including primarily construction workers and teachers. Private sector jobs were NOT mentioned as recipients of this money.Obama has already spent $821 billion dollars to 'save' the economy with his 'stimulus' The unemployment rate, which has been above 9 percent in all but two months since May 2009.When taking into account those who stopped looking for employment or those who took part-time jobs, the rate rose to 16.2% from 16.1%.The rate was 7.8 percent when Obama took office.President Obama called on taxpayers to send their hard-earned money to the federal government so that Washington can pour that money into public school construction to “modernize 35,000 public schools.” Our public schools in THIS area, and in much of the US have closed after spending millions of tax dollars on construction after declining enrollment! These buildings are either empty or sold at a loss, after spending millions of tax dollars in improvements. Obama proposes do do more of the same!
September 15, 2011 15:43:49 Observer   Bertimouse - You have affronted my honor one too many times. "Hiermit melde ich mich Herausforderung, die Sie zu einem Duell". Send your second to see my second to arrange a time and place of your choosing. Cream pies at 5 paces. (NO FROZEN CREAM PIES)
September 15, 2011 14:34:32 Observer   Bertimouse - What on earth are you drinking (or sniffing)?
September 15, 2011 08:52:13 former teacher   Has anyone that posts on this message board ever heard of spell check? Things would be a lot easier to read if they were spelled correctly.
September 15, 2011 08:36:10 CJR   Are we ready for Deer Season ???? Does anybody think its going to be a great season with all those lumber jacks cutting trees of shears rd and rt 20 ???? Also Did the DEC took the tree across Shear Rd yet by pondersoa
September 15, 2011 08:09:19 TX-1   29F tomorrow night,fluries?
September 15, 2011 03:07:51 bertimouse   Yall are TOTAL Wimps if you think that 45 degrees in Sept. is Cold, LOL! -Best get out of Town while you still can before "Winter", ha ha. ha ha. ha ha. We could use a Poet here to say something, eh? just thinking too much now sorry.
September 15, 2011 03:00:21 bertimouse   DUH. Get it Sir? Thanks Forever From Here.
September 15, 2011 02:48:21 bertimouse   Hey Observer: Get Over Yourself for Once! Life Is NOT ALL ABOUT YOU, Eh? We have a BIG U.S. COUNTRY out there, eh? =EVERYONE disagrees with EVERYTHING, Ha ha. -Welcome To Being A PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.A.!!! -NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO SAY THAT THEY HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE except Our Current President OBAMA. He Inherited Everything BAD that our Former President & Congress voted for us.
September 14, 2011 15:46:25 Observer   "ARE YOU READY FOR WINTER?" ---- NO NO and NO!!
September 14, 2011 14:04:26 tx-1   ARE YOU READY FOR WINTER?
September 13, 2011 18:27:19 Observer   While the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to free speech it has been one of the biggest controversies over the history of this country. The question of just how far that freedom extends has been argued by some of the best minds in the country over the years. I am sure my blathering on here is covered LOL. The right to opinions and the freedom to express those opinions has been curtailed by many governments over time. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Christian and extremely educated man who lived during the Nazi reign gave his life in a concentration camp for the freedom to express his opinions. I wonder how many Americans would do the same? It is sad to note that we in this country are finding more and more of our liberties being eroded away. I have no doubts that a soon generation will experience censorship of word and action. Something as simple as being told to shut up here on this site is the beginning of such action by the authorities. As harmless as it may seem right now the fact that Christians are prevented in many many cases of expressing their opinion is a good example. We do not have to see something as extreme as Waco to understand the direction this country is headed. The heavy handedness of law enforcement is one example. Some law enforcement has shoved through laws preventing a person from filming them. Or look at the number of video cameras being used by law enforcement in the name of "protection". To fly in this country is to be herded like cattle at a slaughter house. All in the name of "protection".
September 13, 2011 15:08:33 dog lover   It sure is nice to know that Masonville was never under a state of emergency and FEMA can work on the areas where they are really needed. It certainly makes us feel lucky, maybe a little water in our basements but nothing that requires emergency money.
September 13, 2011 10:18:37 TX-1   What happened to the Evil Bear,havent hear about it for a while,may it got kill in the storm?
September 13, 2011 01:18:09 Les   a resident of town; One of the great things in this country is freedom of speech and the right of opinion. "I don't criticize the fact that he writes,but only his ideology.We can never be sure that the opinion we are endeavoring to stifle is a false opinion; and if we were sure, stifling it would be an evil still." John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859
September 13, 2011 00:47:48 Les   TX-1; Four letter bad words are not allowed on this site! That word should be censored for now! Sunshine and warm (not hot) weather is all we need to talk about for the next couple months!
September 13, 2011 00:42:34 Les   Ha, Ha, Observer, I've been telling that joke for weeks, still funny though! Besides every day of his Presidency being 'historic', O's favorite other saying is it's Bush's fault! I wonder if this excuse will transition into the next Presidency? Just skip O and blame it on Bush four or eight years later!
September 12, 2011 18:59:19 Observer   After the recent earthquake here on the East Coast Obama renamed the fault line on which it occurred. It is now know as Bush's Fault.
September 12, 2011 16:47:15 Observer   Comeon now!!! NO SNOW !!
September 12, 2011 16:35:20 TX-1   Just out of the rain , now snow.just great!!!!
September 12, 2011 16:34:13 TX-1   Going Down to 36f on Friday night!!going to be a bad winter.
September 12, 2011 10:33:27 Observer   PS -"Resident of town" As to keeping "unnecessary" comments to myself. If my comments change the attitude of one person are they not worthwhile? So why keep them "private"?
September 12, 2011 10:10:22 Observer   I stand ready to help anyone, including Masonville, in any fashion and any time that I am able. Of course at my age my "helping" would be more in the non-physical than the physical. There comes a time when a person "slows" down in the physical activities. And you are correct. I attempt to be cordial and friendly with everyone. While I do not know very many people here in Masonville I still would lend a hand to anyone here. But I still contend that when anyone, myself included, offers help it should be turned down with politeness not with an air of superiority and disdain.
September 12, 2011 09:46:01 a resident of town   observer....with the 30 yrs. experience you have with the fire department possibly you would be interested in helping Masonville out since you would never treat anyone like "trash", unless you are willing to help please keep unnecessary comments private. thank you.
September 12, 2011 00:53:28 Les   Rode home from work and a song we sang quite often in elementary school in Masonville was playing over the radio, God Bless the USA. Lee Greenwood wrote his hit song "God Bless the USA" more than 25 years ago. At that time, he said, he wanted to write a song to help Americans "become more unified and have something to hold us together as a Christian nation." "Living with it since I wrote it, it hasn't changed for me," Greenwood said. "It was a song for America in the Gulf War. It was a song of hope in Katrina. It became a song of unity of spirit after 9/11, and 20 years later it is still a song of unity." God Bless The USA, and God Bless the victims of 911!
September 10, 2011 20:48:31 part time resident   maybe the volunteers were just plain tired and not as cordial as some may think they should have been, but we all need to remember that they are just that, volunteers.
September 10, 2011 12:36:01 Observer   I would like to say the volunteers who responded during the recent emergency, for the most part, did and are doing a great job and my thanks to them. But, I think perhaps as part of the training for our Fire Departments and Fire Police should be a course in public relations. I served as a volunteer fire person for over 30 years in a number of offices and position and never found it necessary to treat the public like trash. I left that sort of attitude up to law enforcement as they view the public as trash anyway. It costs nothing to be polite and helpful to people. And in the case of the local fire departments they should remember it is the same public they will be asking for donations in one form or another. I have always tried to be a generous as possible when stopped by fire departments on the roads asking for donations or received letters asking for donations. I realize very well that dealing with the public can be frustrating at times but when one of those citizens asks if they can be of any service you do not threaten them with arrest if they do not get out of the area or tell them to get lost. It might behoove those who are in "authority" in a time of emergency to find our how a person might be of service and what that persons abilities might be in helping them.
September 09, 2011 22:06:42 part time resident   this is when we should all be glad we live in Masonville and not along the beautiful river, that is most of the time they are very beautiful, hopefully all of the flooding of 2011 is behind us now. Good luck to all others. good
September 09, 2011 21:05:34 Observer   Made it to Mt Upton today after a very round about trip to Unadilla and over the hill. Seems considerable flooding along the Unadilla river all the way from E. Guilford to Mt Upton. We here in the valley seem to have escaped the brunt of the flooding and damage. I am sure there was some cellar flooding etc. in this immediate area, but all in all the Dear Lord was good to us compared to many of our neighboring communities. I was informed that the home I lived in when a resident of the Fleischmanns area was a total loss in the storm preceding this one.
September 09, 2011 13:26:16 Grumpy Ernst Keidel After I checked my email this morning, went back to bed. Once I arose for my wife's lunch sandwich, I was greeted by an unfamiliar sight: the SUN! Looks good out there and our Hosuni (cat) is happily exploring around the rear deck.
September 09, 2011 13:25:48 snowman   Does anyone know if route 8 from deposit to masonville is open?
September 09, 2011 13:11:23 taxpayer   The water is finding it's way back into the rivers and streams but left a path of distruction behind for many of the unfortunate that lived in the low areas. Roads are slowly opening and hopefully no more rain for awhile so things can dry out again.
September 09, 2011 09:17:06 TX-1   How bad are the roads up there
September 09, 2011 09:15:59 Grumpy Ernst Keidel A friend from Sidney came to stay the night with us; he brought his wife and 11 year-old daughter. Our wives are planning to go to the Middle School today to help out. We don\'t know yet how long they will stay with us.
September 09, 2011 02:45:59 bertimouse   Nuff Said For Now. Many Thanks to Our Neighbors. The TOM survived better than most this time. Let's all go down & help Sidney if we can, eh? -Just a thought. PL&H&LessisMore, Berti.
September 09, 2011 02:36:08 bertimouse   And P.S. Masonville missed it by only 5-10 miles. If anyone would like to dispute this just TRY & take a drive "thru" Bainbridge right now. Prayer Helps Everyone, Yall, Eh?
September 09, 2011 02:22:12 bertimouse   OK so Maybe we should all be looking for WMD\'s right now because of the latest News Alert...should be a \"Yellow\" or \"Red\" by now, eh? The 9/11/01 Date Needs to be Remembered BY ALL; NOW! There is no time like the Present. These here big Floods only serve us ALL to be prepared - Yah, for Anything that you\'ve never thought of before; BTW: High Alert for Car BomBings in NYC & DC so all we can do here is Pray For It Not To Happen, Yes?
September 08, 2011 20:45:29 taxpayer   Once again Masonville avoided the flooding and for the most part is in good shape. Have not heard of any flooded cellars although there probably are a few. No need for generators this time around but it is nice to know there is one available for use.
September 08, 2011 18:00:13 majtom   How is the flooding around the Masonville area? Any roads closed or washed out?
September 08, 2011 13:20:20 TX-1   Any flooding in MV?
September 08, 2011 10:52:08 9/11   bertimouse I dont think masonville has or will forget about 911 u not see what the hell is going on around here we need to help the towns around us right NOW not stand around thinking of the past we r in the present
September 07, 2011 22:01:45 bertimouse   9-11-01 is a date that Everyone should know about & no one should Forget. We are sad that TOM Forgot the 10th Anniversary of this Dreadful Event that changed Life For ALL OF US, eh? -Just Saying here. PL&H&LessisMore.
September 07, 2011 21:57:47 bertimouse   So what is TOM doing for 9/11 this Weekend; Anything Official? Whatever. We\'ll be in NYC: first time in 15 years Folks...wish us Luck Yall!
September 07, 2011 16:44:42 Les   Thanks Kathy! I always wanted a scanner. Nice to know there is a free one online!

September 06, 2011 07:57:23 TX-1   Going up Shears ,there is a fallen tree across the rd,right by Ponderosa,can go under it BUT it will come down and it may fall on someones head,why has the Ranger not taken it down,it will be a problem in the future.
September 04, 2011 17:28:37 Masonville Resident   More rain for Masonville, no basements had serious water in them, hopefully, from Irene so now we will try again. Why could we not have had some of this water in July?
September 03, 2011 11:03:26 TOM Webmaster   PS- A full version of Autocad would barely fit on a 200 gig drive running XP let alone using it with any success. Running it on any of the mobile products would not be a very successful venture. Autocad is very demanding of graphic speed and capabilities plus being resource hog. There is a saying among geeks. "Develop a big storage unit and software engineers will figure out a way of filling it." Software rapidly becomes bloatware thus we see the terabyte drives etc. While it may be true at this stage the mobile devices are fine for cruising the internet and sending e-mail etc they are not developed to the point that they are useful for many purposes and software. One drawback is the size of the viewing screen. This is an impossible barrier at this point of development. One day perhaps we will be able to plug it in our ear or something and see the display in our minds. LOL
September 03, 2011 10:22:43 TOM Webmaster   Download a program called CCleaner (free) and run it several times. Also upgrade virus and trojan protection. Might try defragging your "C" drive as well. Newegg is a good online store and reasonably priced with fast shipping.
September 03, 2011 00:36:58 bertimouse   Need Advice on Computer ASAP! Apparently our old 2002 laptop with an XP op system is dying even with something like a 200 gig external hard drive! -Just can\'t figure out WHY - if everything is being stored into the external drive then why are we having such SLOW problems now? -Folks have been telling us that \"All We Really Need Now\" is an itty-bitty Notebook for our computer needs which consist of allot of emails, photo files, & some small word processing files...however I\'d like the capability of also being able to use [notoriusly large] AUTOCAD, etc. designing-type Please help us out there. We could really use a \"Geek Squad Consultant\" for recommend also where to buy this stuff at a reasonable price. Thanks & Here\'s Hoping that Everyone Has a Great Weekend. :)
September 03, 2011 00:25:57 bertimouse   Huh LOL? Don't get your comment. Please explain? Thanks.
September 02, 2011 15:50:18 LOL   Bertimouse - The voice of Masonville. WE say. Nuff said.
September 02, 2011 10:05:23 TX   Hey!! is the ice cream place on rt 8 open yet?
September 01, 2011 20:43:49 bertimouse   So the Good Points about this Storm?: 1.Most of the Weak Trees are down so that future Fall & Winter storms shouldn't do as much tree damage? 2.Everyone will be more ready for the next storm? 3.Folks will get more used to having no power & learn more about the alternatives. 4.Folks will be more informed about the Emergency Management Plans within their Towns. OK Nuff Said.
September 01, 2011 20:30:24 bertimouse   Everyone in the Town of Margaretville could use some help right now if yall are interested...or in Schoharie County which is truly "SCARRY" right now. If you have any relations in VERMONT; they're living on little Islands right now which if you remember the flood of '06 that's what Masonville was for at least 48 hours; these folks may be isolated for weeks! There were College students back-packing down trails to get back to the main roads in order to get back to school! 'Aint that great?[We Love Vermont!] What's not great is that they need folks to re-build their roads FAST. -Anyone with any construction experience who's out of work right now should GO FOR THIS, QUICK!
September 01, 2011 20:05:56 bertimouse   Hi Grumpy; Lucky you that you should have a freezer full of Food! These days ours is pretty empty at the house. We can most of our veggies 7 tomatoes; the freezer out in the garage also has lots of frozen water all the time, too. They say that if you have a(mostly)empty refrigerator it\'s better to stuff it with frozen water anyways...Guess we\'re just weird. We eat what we grow & buy fresh produce weekly just like most of Europe(?)does. No reason to spend any extra money on supplies when we can always shoot & eat possum[a delicacy in France, btw] or rabbits & dear, eh? Thanks Yall for your kind comments, but get ready for another hurricane named Katria coming-me thinks we\'re going to get CLOBBERED with a cat 3 soon though of course my better(?)half says NAH. I\'ll be watching;won\'t know until next Wednesday what path this next Witch is taking. Nuff said. All is well for now.
September 01, 2011 11:03:34 Tony CR-20   Thank you Masonville Resident!
September 01, 2011 10:23:17 Masonville Resident   the hamlet of Masonville is up and running with electric now and were very lucking not to be hit with the devistation that hit the other parts of NYS. Good luck to all.
September 01, 2011 10:04:38 Tony - CR-20 your education as well as thoughtful posts! Hope all is well with you and your family!
September 01, 2011 09:54:49 Tony CR-20   We are getting conflicting reports down here in the City. They say NYSEG has shut power to Deleware County, Masonville as a precaution. Can anyone confirm this and does anyone know if the power has been restored to CR-20. Thank you and I hope all is well with everyone up there. We are heading up this weekend and after accessing the damages to my property my services are available to any of the good people of Masonville. (Bringing chainsaws, etc.) Please let me know if you need anything.
September 01, 2011 09:05:35 TX-2   BBQ it!!
September 01, 2011 08:36:42 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Thanks for the advice, Bertimouse: \"Freezing a few gallon jugs of water before hand helps with the refrigerator keeping cool for DAYS & it costs NOTHING.\" What does one do with the frozen food while one is keeping the water jugs frozen? Our freezer compartments are full of food and there is very little room for anything else.
September 01, 2011 05:36:26 Robert   Part timer here from houck road. How did masonville fare with the hurricane? NYC got off easy. Hope all is well. Can't wait to get back up there, hope everyone has there power back.
August 31, 2011 21:20:49 bertimouse   "No news is Good News" my Mom always reminded us. It takes 2-5-7 days for Electric to get back "online" in a big-A storm. What would yall say; this was a #3 in terms of folks not being prepared enough? -Just Curious here, Thanks. -We are sure that the TOM Supervisor Craig D. would also like to hear about how the TOM Responded to Everyone, you know? Kudos go to the MVFD, Eh? We'd like to hear more stories about them, too. Thanks My Good Neighbors So Much!
August 31, 2011 20:58:38 bertimouse   Nah, Grumpy; just a good deep-cell marine battery & a 750 watt inverter will do ya for a couple days. BTW Folks; Freezing a few gallon jugs of water before hand helps with the refrigerator keeping cool for DAYS & it costs NOTHING. -Having a camp stove with a few bottles of propane to heat up some water for a Warm Shower also helps - all you need in this here weather is a tin or plastic bucket with holes drilled into the bottom, tied to a tree for a nice warm shower. Or you could rig up a spigot to go into your bathroom window! -Doesn\'t anyone ever CAMP OUT anymore?!? LOL we Love when the Electric goes off; though with this storm it\'s the Most Turned Off we\'ve ever experienced. Good to know that All in TOM are well. If anyone needs anymore Help Please give us a shout out here. We are Here Now & will help you Neighbor if We Can. :)

August 30, 2011 20:17:55 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Ok, I'm baack! Used to have power outages here before, but they were genarally cleared up in a few hours! One this long is quite unusual. Time to invest in a generator, I think.

August 30, 2011 10:03:41 Grumpy Ernst Keidel No, Wishbone, that\'s why I am down at the library (NOT the one in Masonville) using the computer to be able to communicate with the outside world! No electricity, therefore no water, no telephone and of course, the cell phone service doesn\'t reach us!
