Over the fence
Over the past 10 days, we've seen a lot more snow fall, and some people located in higher elevations have had to carve through snowdrifts as high as six to eight feet tall so they can see out their windows.
Sunday, the ice jam that started in North Creek on the Hudson River broke up and rumbled through Thurman territory, stopping at the Glen-Hudson Campsites.
Again and again this winter, we've been buried in about a foot of snow. While weather forecasters were going ballistic about these weather incidents, it seemed like routine weather up here.
What was shocking and deeply distressing, however, has been the news of the horrific earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We are all saying prayers for those who perished, and for the restoration of normal life for those who lived through the nightmare - which is still unfolding as this issue goes to press. It looks like folks from around the world are now reaching out in a much-needed relief effort, and we hope for the speediest recovery possible, although it might be many years before life in Japan returns to normal.
Whether its crocheting, quiltmaking or knitting, anyone who enjoys such a satisfying endeavor is welcome to join the Thurman Quilting Group. For details, call Myra at 623-2633.
