Wind Damage

Last weekend brought severe winds that caused a lot of damage in the area, included downed trees everywhere. If only I had our wood burning stove installed to take advantage of all the free "fuel" laying around here.

Skateboarding is Not a Crime

Ironically, while photographing skateboarders for a news story about opening a local skate park to give the kids a place to skate safely, I almost got smacked by a skateboard that flew from underfoot, under a passing car, which clipped the side and shot the board right back at us - just a few feet from my head. Hope they open that skatepark soon...

Finally Our Snow Turn

Seems like every other state got a big snow this year. For some reason upstate New York was a little behind. Until now.

Fork in the Road

Found this fork somewhere between my house and the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, on my way to do a workshop about my car that runs on used vegetable oil. A story not at all related to the photo, but just something random for you.

Firehouse Fire - The Irony of Ironies






Perhaps the irony of ironies: my local firehouse (rural lingo for fire station) has a new building under construction which burned yesterday. I guess the fire crew didn't have far to go...

Winter Wonderland - ice style



Two weekends ago, here in upstate New York, we had a major ice storm that left over a million people with out power. The trees were so heavily weighted down with ice, that they fell within hours, taking out power lines, cars, roadways, and everything else in the path. This photo shows the massive amount of ice, as well as the trees along the bottom bending in an arc.
