A Final Farewell to the Little Green House

This is the second storey of the not so little Little Green House which no longer exists. The trees were "pruned" by wind and storm.

A New House is Built

The trees, planted too close to the house caused foundation problems. This was just one reason the house had to go.

I miss the little green house and the trees, but that's life.

A new home appears...almost ready for a family to move in.

I'm impressed with the speed and stamina of the construction crew. The framing took place during bitterly cold days. I walked back up a few weeks later to see how things were progressing.

Random Pandemonium

It's a very pretty world during a snowfall.

A little shed near the HSBC bank had a sign in the window, but I couldn't make out what it said... could it be the old " Speckled Pandemonium " sign?

Oak Hill

Looking toward the thruway from Oak Hill.


Shadows and a lonely grave

The name Hoes caught my eye on this marker. President Van Buren was married to a woman named Hannah Hoes, so I began to wonder if these people were close relatives of The President and First Lady, and I wondered ... did a lot of Van Burens marry Hoes?

Ice & a Measuring Device

Generally, the town icicles are larger than the residential icicles.

We use a medium sized ( nine pound ) cat to determine the depth of snow. The cat walks all around up and down hills and reports back to us. According to the cat, we had about six inches of snow in the yard. There were some areas where drifting occurred, adding another inch or so.


Nyack and Tarrytown were both easy to drive around yesterday, as long as you were mindful. For a few miles I was following right behind two snow ploughs. Talk about feeling safe! I got home in the late afternoon during a lull in the sensationalized storm.

Are frosted like a wedding cake." --Robert Louis Stevenson

Nyack Snow Day

No school today in Nyack, and the downtown area was very quiet this morning.

Easy going on The Tap. Very little traffic on the bridge--guess a lot of people opted to stay at home.

Things are pretty quiet.

Waiting for the big snowstorm to arrive!

Another Snowy Day

Trees are simply amazing.

Hilltop Drive

Creeks run through the Nyacks.

The groundhog was right about winter, but there's not enough snow to call off school.
