If you missed our post earlier today: http://on.fb.me/1ouYn6T a clear sky has provided a great opportunity to view the snow and ice cover from space. This zoomed in image is of Central NY, and extreme northern PA. Unlike our previous post we did not add any geographic references. We didn’t want to take away from the features of interest. See below for more on those features: • Notice how much ice is over the eastern end of Lake Ontario. While not as covered as other Great Lakes, this is very significant. If you look close you can see how the ice is much more solid along the far eastern end of the lake along the coastline. Over the lake itself it is much more fractured. • Just southeast of here is Oneida Lake. This is completely covered with ice. • Look at the Finger Lakes Region. The smaller lakes, such as Owasco are completely covered. While the two larger lakes (Seneca and Cayuga) are mostly free, look at the northern end of Cayuga. Some ice is also present over Cayuga lake itself, and also at the southern end. • The white you see over land is the snow cover. In addition if you can make out the rivers, those are pretty much ice covered as well.

Audra Lindley on Helen Roper:
"I believe Helen Roper was a very warm, loving woman. She had a maternal instinct with the kids, she was nice and fun to be around, and she was a good-hearted, generous woman with a sense of humor. I didn’t want to play her as mean or as sour…She enjoyed herself. She wanted to get dressed up and have parties. Stanley was really boring. She wanted to go out and have a good time. He wanted to stay at home and talk to his pet bird. But she loved him, oh, sure she did."

apparently the area code I was forced to spend age 10-18 is now being shamed for men there molesting cows. I would like to point out that that area code covers quite a vast area of NYS and to shame a whole area code shows ignorance.
