Out of the woods

“We’re New Yorkers, and we’re going to get through it, but I don’t want anyone to think we’re out of the woods.”

-Mayor Bloomberg


What’s wrong with the woods?

“We are wild and free people, and we’re going to get through this, but I don’t want anyone to think we’re out of civilization yet.”

  1. I would rather live in the woods in a tent all my days, than be a millionaire living in a penthouse apartment in new yak city. Even the part time town living that I do, gets me down. It gets harder to come back to town all the time. But I have elder family to take care of. All to soon the last tie to civilization will be severed and I won't look back.

    1. We do what we have to do for family. My wife's minimum is to live on a road that's open in the winter. Ours is, but just barely.

  4. I know they want help, yet I don't remember them rushing down here to haul water and ice to our old folks this past summer during our power outage/heat wave. Guess I'm not supposed to look at it that way.

    1. 20 minutes outside of a smaller town has some advantages, but it looks like silly rules have caught up to you.

      Being a zillion miles away from everything isn't perfect either. Just ask anyone who had to make an all day journey to pick up a $2 plumbing part.
