    Gladly, I love them but they are sort of regional I think - Erie Insurance. I expected an awful experience, you never hear anything good about insurance adjusters but my guy has been incredible. When he came out a few days after the storm, he knew we had been at our neighbors, all still on generator power with no other utilities. He brought us cases of water, 2 filled gas cans, ice, and a box of milk bones for my dogs. Whatever we needed since, he gets for us. My GC was even pleased with him, makes getting my repairs done pretty much hassle free.

    My other neighbor wasn't so lucky. His insurance co told him that because he had another claim in the same year (Sandy hit 10/29/12 one day before the one year mark of the freak ice/snow storm 10/30/11) he was at his limit so of the $50k in damage, they only gave him $10k.

    Love those shakes Dix, they look like hand splits. The picture of Murph is priceless. He's a handsome fellow.

    Looking very nice Ray! I love the stone retaining wall. I can only imagine the time it took to build it.

    Thanx! It's what is called a country stone wall. The rocks are just stacked on top of each other with no cement however I have had to repile a few if I bump into them lol..

    . Yes the cabin was built in 1900. I love it but it needs a lot of work. My neighborhood was a resort where people from Charlestown would spend the summer for the cooler mountain temps. There's even an old gaming building for shuffleboard, etc. Much like the resort in Dirty Dancing. Fun thread!

    DC is great as a tourist. Took the kids and went to the top. Had to get up ungodly early to get the tickets. Was there for a conference a few years ago too, great time...I mean all business.
