So, how far is it to your Maine, part-time residence from your house? Is that like a summer home? Do you have the chance to go there very often? Would you say it is a couple of hours from your "real" residence, hee hee.
On a good day, it takes us one hour forty-five minutes to get up there. No matter what we've got to deal with Boston traffic, if we leave early enough in the morning we do well, if we leave on Saturday afternoon it can take a good two and a half hours. We try to go up there every other weekend, but during the winter, it's less frequent - the house is so cold it takes a good day to warm it up, so unless we're going up there for three days it isn't really worth it. If there's a heavy snow we go, though, so Greg can shovel off the root (it's a shed roof, snowload is a factor he worries about, although he and a friend rebuilt it last year so it's much stronger).
I looked on the map to see where you are situated. Boston is on the 42nd latitude and you say you are about 26 miles south of Boston. I think it is funny how the Canadian border goes below the Great Lake and then back up again to be parallel again. I have no clue why my curiosity gets so hyped up some times, I am of the belief that I must be a strange girl, :shock: :) :). I guess you had best tell me your story, hee, hee. PM me if you want, instead of this yakity, yak, yak, yak here!!!! (That was teasing for you JP, hee, hee :) :) :))
Strange is relative, you sound absolutely sane to me! :-D
Toronto is on the 43rd latitude, so I would imagine that your climate is reasonably close to that of Toronto? Do you know? I have been to Toronto two times, and it is a beautiful place, I would therefore imagine that where you live is just as beautiful, yea!!!! (what is the Cape, by the way, you lost me). Yes, we are 3 hours behind you in the time, weird concept eh? Great day, great life, great all. Cindi
I think Toronto has a more steady climate than we do. I lived in Michigan when I was little, and went back there every summer to stay with my grandparents in Marine City, MI on the shores of the St. Clair River (about 40 miles north of Detroit). The Great Lakes are a great moderator of weather, when it's cold out, it stays cold, when it's warm, the lakes warm up and it stays warm. So you really do get four solid seasons there. Here it's up and down all the time, yesterday at 6:30 am it was 19, today it was 34. It'll go like that all winter. In Michigan we had reliable snowcover, here it comes and goes on a daily basis, sometimes.
I've been to Toronto, it's a really nice city (which is saying alot from me, I hate cities). Laid out logically, great public transportation, and clean
! I went up in that CNN tower and couldn't bring myself to walk on the glass floor, although I did look down quite a bit (I think it's 1250 feet in the air :shock:) I'd love to get Greg up there, he'd enjoy it.
