Given the projections by more than one that this winter could rival some of the more impressive cold and snowy winters in our New England past, We should all be prepared to get our snowblowers ready early and our snow shovels placed at the door for it appears this winter will see atle ast three to four substantial nor 'easters and cold air which as long as we are prepared, creates such a beautiful Winter wonderland to be enjoyed by all who attest to their hearty New England tradition! Get ready early for even the leaves are falling off earlier this year it seems and the gas and oil bills will be arriving at the door shortly in parallel with $4/per gallon gasoline and higheer taxes and fees and the beltway caring little 'bout much these days other than its own self-serving interests - will be running to the poll in a few short weeks - you bet'cha! Enough is enough! No longer will We here on "Main Street USA" tolerate another King George III with little representation burdening us with taxes and fess, taxes and fess.... BTW, during the winter, www.bluehill.org is a good bet to keep an eye on local weather conditions -- Christopher Tingus Sharon chris.tingus@gmail.com
