  1. Now that blue is under new ownership, I got a letter last week my houseboat had to be removed from the fishing pond. Apparently its an eyesore the new owners did not like. Just picked it up in case it will be needed tomorrow as an arc. I suspect by 6pm tomorrow there should be enough water for me to float down and pick you up?
  2. I have a mini split in my office for heat and ac. In the summer it can run non stop on ac and it hardly has an effect on the electric bill. My old office had a window unit and the office was bigger. The light bill was always high in the summer. I can't believe how efficient those mini splits are.
  3. Article from Mcall but they won't answer if it changed ownership. https://www.mcall.com/business/mc-biz-blue-mountain-resort-now-under-ksl-resorts-management-20210511-cbo4u6nb2vdulaz5garu2g67qi-story.html
  4. WFMZ reported on this tonight https://www.wfmz.com/news/area/poconos-coal/blue-mountain-resort-under-new-management/article_79d598be-b1c4-11eb-8f19-279f9f02c692.html
  5. Finally got my first shot yesterday. Pfizer from LVHN at the former AC Moore store in whitehall. Had the shot in my arm within 5 minutes of walking in. It was busy but ran like a well oiled machine.
  6. Starting tomorrow 4/13 anyone can schedule. They are moving it up from next Monday.
  7. I hear you. Thats why it took me forever to buy one. But I am not going to lie this thing was worth every penny. I tilled almost all the neighbors gardens too to be neighborly.
  8. I hear that all the time from customers out here in the boonies.
  9. Finally broke down and bought a rototiller for my John Deere 1025r. Should have done it a long time ago. Heres a pic of my uncle trying it out last weekend.
  10. My mom got her first shot Monday at Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest. She logged in to her account last week to get something for insurance and noticed they had appointments and snagged one before they were gone. Lucky timing for her.
  11. This reminds me of the office scene where Dwight intentionally lights a fire and says today smoking will save lives.
  12. Not sure what is worse. Telling penndot your temp tags or dealer tags are stolen/lost lol
  13. If you google penndot speed cameras they will list the locations where they are in use statewide. I guess thats a requurement in order to ticket you, they consider it fair warning.
  14. If you are 11 mph or more over you will get it no later than 30 days after they caught you.
  15. A few businesses up this way got together to try and form a chamber of commerce. They invited Gary Day several times and he never would show. Conveniently, he showed up to one meeting in an election year and tried soliciting donations. There are some people who run for office because they care and want to try and make a difference. Others do it for all the wrong reasons. All I wanted to know from him is what happens if they expand the use of these cameras and someone on a test drive gets caught speeding on one of my dealer tags. You going to send me the ticket a month later and make me pay? He didn't know what to say and said he'd get back to me. I've been waiting since July and still no response.
  16. Gary Day actually. I don't understand how he even stays in office. People even in his own party don't have anything good to say about him. This summer while people were struggling to get unemployment they would contact his office for assistance. He would never get back to them personally, he left it up to his two secretaries. Another local business owner told me a few people were so mad about the unemployment situation they showed up to his house. Here during the work week, he was floating around his pool at his big house.
  17. My mom got a warning in the mail from one of those speed camera jeeps on 95 right before the Delaware state line last summer. They claim it was an "active" work zone but there wasn't a sole working there. First violation is a warning second is $75 fine and it goes up from there. No points on your license. I got into an ugly argument with the local do nothing state rep about it. I'm all for worker safety and he tried turning it around that I don't care about highway workers and support careless driving. No, I just find it wrong you have signs lit as "active work zone" when there is no work taking place just so you can use speed cameras. No different than a BS speed trap for revenue.
  18. My aunt apparently got thrown out of wegmans and costco for not wearing a mask and made a scene each time. Glad we have different last names. She was never like this and we don't know what happened.
  19. My sister came up from FL to go to her best friends baby shower the weekend before Thanksgiving. My mother tried talking her out of it for months to no avail. My mom refused to go and called the girls mom to tell her why and said if it was her daughter she wouldn't have a shower right now. The place they were going to have it at cancelled months ago because of covid. My aunt and uncle are converting a barn into a wedding venue in where else but New Tripoli. My anti-mask aunt wasn't about to let the baby shower be ruined and decided to hold it at the barn. Found out last night my sisters pregnant friend had cold chills and lost her taste and smell earlier this week. She got tested and found out this morning she was positive for covid. Time will tell if other people from the baby shower get sick.
  20. Maybe. Depends if Jim Daly remebers to get the lifts inspected.
  21. Fake news. They were donations for the tree!
  22. Truth. My dad used to smoke a cig on the quad if we were spaced far enough apart. He also applied the same theory to smoking while skiing. Worked well until he wiped out pizza wedging down raceway and his cig nearly caught his jacket on fire during the yard sale.
  23. They very well could be. They are that old that those ratios wouldn't be unheard of. Some of these new tower guns are running with only 25cfm of air now. It is amazing.
  24. Yes, these look like TechnoAlpin low energy tower guns. Basically a newer, efficient version of a York Snow Borax tower gun like you see on paradise, razors edge etc. I haven't been to blue in over 10 years, but back then they still had the old air/water style guns on Burma. Those were a combination of home made, omichron's on towers, and some really old spraying systems style guns when they dabbled in the snowmaking business back in the late 60's/early 70's. The advantage to these new guns are they are much more efficient in air consumption. Depending what they bought, you could probably run 7-10 new ones to one old gun. Most of the TechnoAplin towers usually have a built in compressor too so they don't have to pump air up the mountain. These guns are very easy to automate, basically right off the hydrants themselves. Snow quality will be much better as well.
