    Nice photo. We have our lighted boat parade coming up in a couple of weeks.

  2. swanspirit says:

    That’s so pretty! Thank you Denise! You would think Ocean City would have some boat related light event, but we don’t that I know of. We do have Winter fest of Lights, which is a walk or drive through.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think I stole the photo from a Tampa holiday lights boat parade 😀

      • taw46 says:

        They have a great boat parade down here. We also have an amazing lighted bike parade coming in a week. Someone said KW turns into a Hallmark movie in December! 😂

        • DeniseVB says:

          I’m surprised the Keys haven’t been a Hallmark location yet. The consistent “love” formula would fit perfectly with any of the fun events down there. 🙂 I know they do a lot of location filming in Canada to save money, that may be hard to pretend to be Key West.

          • taw46 says:

            They like “snow” in their Christmas movies and that would be hard to fake down here, lol. I guess it would be expensive, Canada is definitely cheaper. There have been quite a few movies made here in the Keys over the years.

            I will say December is my favorite time in KW. So much going on, you can’t began to hit all of the activities. Fun times. 😊

          • 1539days says:

            Hallmark did a Christmas movie set in Louisiana. The accents weren’t great.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I am surprised Ocean City does not have any boat related events for Christmas. Seems like a natural . They have one at the harbor in Baltimore and one at the wharf in D.C..

      I would say the best option in the general DC/MD/NVA region is the one they added to the Christmas festivities in Alexandria. They already had a lot going on and added the boat parade to their big “Scottish Christmas” weekend about 20 years ago. Alexandria is compact so everything is mostly walkable, its a nice area and they have activities for kids not just have dinner at the harbor/wharf and watch the boats.

    Crash went to her first dance last night. It was the Rainbow Girl/Demolay Ball. Evening gowns and tuxedos. Her first school dance next year is going to be such a letdown. 🙂 But her reaction this morning was, “I felt like Eliza Doolittle. I could have danced all night!”

    This event is like the old school lessons in etiquette I remember from being a tween. No young man could ask a girl to dance until he had danced with every girl in the room, and no girl could refuse a partner. As a parent-chaperone, I have danced with many a 5 ft tall young man fulfilling his obligation to ask a chaperone to dance. In today’s world it’s all about personal agency and not expecting kids do anything that makes them feel obligated to say yes. It’s all about the right to say no, and truly I get that.

    But there is also something to be said for teaching kids some old-fashioned manners under the watchful eye of their parents. I’ve witnessed many a 13 year old girl at school dances turn down the offer of a dance with a perfectly nice young man because she’s waiting for the “right boy” to come along. Better to stand next to the punch bowl than dance with the pimply kid who sits behind you in English class. When my son was a teen, I had five 13-year old boys in my living room who all wanted to take April to the dance. I talked them all into considering an alternate. They may not have taken the most popular girl, but they all experienced the power of getting a positive response to their invitation, and five girls never knew they were second choices.

    Crash is going to learn a lot about manners in Rainbow. Besides how one behaves at a ball, she will learn to make formal introductions, the etiquette of the receiving line, how to dine at a formal dinner, how a meeting is conducted, and the art of persuasive public speaking. My daughter’s peers think all of this is nonsense, but knowing all of those things was a real social confidence booster for both of us. As much as I thought it was silly when I was 13, as an adult I recognized how valuable it had been for me, and I happily let my daughter be a part of it.

    I asked Crash if she wanted to go again next year, and she’s already planning on it. Some of the older girls had long white gloves like Cinderella. I think that was a hint.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Awww, how sweet. It sure brought back a rush of that junior and high school angst of a shy girl. So glad Crash had dreamy fun. Have you watched My Fair Lady with her yet? ❤

      • elliesmom says:

        Crash had a “Cindy Brady lisp” and went through speech therapy to help her lose it. We watched “My Fair Lady” so she could get a smile out of Higgins trying to help Eliza lose her accent. It’s been her favorite musical until she discovered “Annie” a few months ago. But it’s not Annie who is her favorite character in that one. It’s Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan.

    • lyn5 says:

      That’s so cute. Happy she likes to dance.

    • lateblum says:

      I’m so happy to read about Crash and her first formal dance. I hope she gets to “dance all night” many times over.

      We used to have a group where I live that held dances so the girls and boys could learn/develop good social skills. But, as usual, the group was called “racist” because it was on the north side of town and “forced” kids of color to leave their neighbor hood and learn “white” social skills. Of course the dances ended and now we have the “wokest” town in Illinois. And also the least socially skilled. Yay, us.

      • DeniseVB says:

        There you are ! How are you feeling? You know how the Mama and Papa Bears here worry when a cub goes missing a couple of days. 😀

      • taw46 says:

        Glad to see you here and hope you are feeling better!

      • elliesmom says:

        I, too, am happy to see you here!

        Crash goes to Rainbow Girls in Concord, MA, which is about as woke as it gets, but while you can only buy bottled water in a one liter size or larger, and they kept fast food out of town by banning disposable serveware, it’s hard to find any non-white folks in town. Any who are there chose Concord because they want to be a part of white culture. Really not much going on to virtue signal with in the race department. I’m sure they’d react the same way Martha’s Vineyard did if someone sent a bus of illegals there.

        Crash lives in an adjacent town where you can go to McDonald’s or Wendy’s, conveniently situated on the Concord town line. 😉 There is a large Brazilian population there, but to be honest. they are professional folks and small business owners. We ended up there because once upon a time it was the headquarters for a large computer company, and ED liked to walk to work. The Conc0rdians are mostly old money, but they aren’t snobby about letting kids who are literally from the other side of the tracks socialize with their kids as long as they can pay their own way. Crash goes to school with kids whose fathers and mothers get their hands dirty – for six figures.

      • Locked-N-Loaded says:

        Lateblum, hope you are feeling much, much better!!

      • swanspirit says:

        Am also glad to see you posting,
        would love to know how you are doing !
        Lots of love!❤🤗

        • lateblum says:

          To everyone who has made me feel like I matter, Thank You.
          I had a scare Friday and ended up in the ER. My oxygen saturation was worsening. Then yesterday I suddenly felt fine. Today, I’m back to feeling sick again. This is no fun.
          They gave me Paxlovid but I didn’t take it. Both the APRN and the MD at the ER said that it was up to me. They both said that the results from the drug were “uneven” and couldn’t say it would actually help. One of the first things I read on the “insert for medical professional” was Paxlovid was not authorized to treat Covid! It is “emergency use authorization” just like the vaccine.
          What is it with these people???

    • Swan Spirit says:

      Those are valuable skills!

      I remember the agony of school dances, when I was growing up, because I was such a late bloomer as a teen. There was no waiting for the right boy for me, because no boy was going to ask me to dance, until I was at least 16, lol!

      But I learned many of those other skills from so many other social occasions, and how to dine at a formal dinner from eating at my Italian grandmother’s house every Sunday.

      I think it’s great in these times, that children can still learn all those wonderful things, because they are still needed, and are great confidence builders.

      I remember going on a trip to Myrtle Beach with a friend, to accompany her daughter’s school band. While there, she and I ditched the the kids for a few hours, (left them with other chaperones) and went to a very fine restaurant; where the owner comes to the table to ask how you are enjoying your meal.

      I was enjoying myself thoroughly, never giving anything a second thought, when my friend asked me “How do you do it?” I asked her, ” do what?”

      She said, “How do you do this? Just relax in a restaurant and know what to do?” She confessed she was terrified, and had no idea how to behave in this situation, and was just going along with what I was doing. To me, what I was doing, was nothing but having dinner in a nice restaurant. My friend is extremely intelligent, funny, and also a highly skilled nurse. Her husband taught physics at the Naval Academy, so I assumed she had plenty of formal social occasions under her belt.
      I was gobsmacked that eating out in a restaurant would cause her, or anyone our age, a second thought.

      It was one of the first times I realized that some people had gaps in their social education. I have not taken it for granted since.

      All of those skills are far from nonsense, they are priceless.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Social skills usually were taught at home, elbows off the table, don’t talk with your mouth full, blah, blah, blah, we just didn’t realize it at the time. I guess when you’re the only species that doesn’t have to learn to hunt to survive, I’ll take proper placement of dining utensils any time 🙂 High School Home Ec classes picked up the slack for some of the other social skills. I didn’t pay much attention, would rather be in the Shop Class with the boys.

        • elliesmom says:

          When I was in college, I worked as a records clerk for the ROTC department. Every year I was pressed into service to help with the military ball in the fall and the dining-in in spring. It was done more for educational purposes than as social events. It was interesting to watch the cadets grow into becoming Army officers as they moved through the program. The officers I worked for chatted with me about which dates at the ball had the “makings of being a good officer’s wife”. I learned more from them about how to be a supportive corporate wife than from anyone else. When ED and I became engaged, the Colonel took him aside and said, “Son, you have just made the most important decision of your life. She’s worth two ranks up your corporate ladder.” 🙂

    • John Denney says:

      “No young man could ask a girl to dance until he had danced with every girl in the room, and no girl could refuse a partner.”

      I don’t understand. How can a fella dance with every girl in the room if he can’t ask a girl to dance until he does?

      Does that mean that at the start, the girls must ask the boys to dance? That a guy can’t ask a girl to dance until every girl has asked him to dance, & he refused none?

      I have a vague memory that there was a Sadie Hawkins dance when I was in High School, but I don’t remember being asked.

      I too was a late bloomer, weighing all of 118 pounds & still looking up at one of the cheerleaders when I graduated. At our 10 year reunion, she only came up to my chin, though I’d still only put on about 10 more pounds.

      • votermom says:

        I’m guessing it’s that a boy can’t ask a girl for a second dance until he’s danced with all the girls

        • elliesmom says:

          Yes, that’s it. Since the boys know the girls have to say yes, there’s no risk to their egos to ask, and the girls get to feel like Cinderella. It’s such a different atmosphere than the typical school dance where just a few kids get to feel good about going. At most middle school dances I chaperoned I spent most the night chasing the wallflowers out of the girls’ room.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        In junior high the nuns gave us dance cards. Prefilled. After you finished the last dance on the card the guys could them ask someone specific to dance. There was usually only time for a couple “open” dances at the end of the night. They did a pretty good job with the cards mixing in the more social with the wallflowers. My cousin and I were always tended to have a slightly larger proportion of short partners because we were the two shortest students in our class. We were still the two shortest when we graduated high school. And yep, the nuns lined us up by height then alphabetically in case of a tie. I always came second if it was single file as both my first and last name came after my cousins. If not we were the bobbsey twins always leading the way side by side.

  4. Mothy67 says:

    We used to have a formal Snow Ball. It was 9th thru 12 th. Was a much bigger thing than prom because everyone went. Someone complained that it was sexist and it stopped. I guess girls getting manicures didn’t sit well with somebody. A thing about a small school is that no one is ever denied anything because of cash. We have constant fundraisers. The juniors and seniors just got back from DC. It was close to 500 a kid. I paid because I was a Catholic school kid who was always selling things to family. Relatives feel like they have to buy a candle for 30 bucks. I hated the imposition. They are always selling things like candles and 20 dollar hoagies. Why not sell things like candy before Halloween. I’d spend an extra 10 to help out. The PTA sent home it’s Christmas catalogue. I would rather donate money directly than buy a 35 dollar key lime pie. Am I insane or are school fundraisers the worst? This year they are selling cookie dough. 30 dollars to make 3 dozen sugar cookies. It’s flour and sugar. Easiest recipe in the world. It is the spaghetti of the cookie world.30 dollars for 36 cookies that you can make in an Easy Bake Oven.

    • elliesmom says:

      I like it when schools sell wrapping paper. I can pick out paper, ribbon, and boxes that all coordinate and make wrapping easy. Last year I bought tin foil containers for food that came with a stack of cardboard covers decorated for different occasions. It’s more expensive than going to the dollar store, but it’s stuff I’ll use, and if I don’t, I can put it in the closet for next year. No one has knocked on my door this year, and I’m a bit disappointed,

  5. Locked-N-Loaded says:

    Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Bird Day for those who had turkey (or chicken, goose, duck, etc.)!!

    • John Denney says:

      All our family is distant, but friends invited us to their family dinner, which, including us, was 10 people.
      So I contributed mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, & stuffing for 10.
      Their youngest daughter, home from college, loves to bake.
      For 10 people, she made 10 pies.
      I brought home 1/4 pie each of apple, pumpkin, 4-berry, & cherry.
      Breakfast for days!

    • 1539days says:

      Pizza for me. I ended up having some turkey later that night, though.

    • Anthony says:

      Spent the day alone. Holiday cooking for one is very alien to me, but I got creative and indulged myself. Made my best potato soup with braised pork, 1 chop and 2 potatoes. Cleanup was a breeze and I actually managed to enjoy my own company. Oh! – and a chocolate chess pie, which should last a few days unless I get stoned later and wipe the motherf*cer out.

      • taw46 says:

        omg, I love chocolate chess pie. I haven’t made one in years, I think it is time!

      • mcnorman says:

        Sounds delicious.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        LOL
        I did Thanksgiving alone and went with shrimp and rice pilaf which worked well with the cranberries I had been cooking. Managed to talk myself around an invitation to cousins’ in-laws where the menu was the latest in [bizarre] vegan catering trends that lets just say do not sit well if you have a 40 mile drive home. Geez Louise just have a salad bar that even the kids could fine something to munch.

        At any rate, we do our own little family dinner Saturday after T’Day with a more kid friendly menu. I am in charge of the dessert and was asked to bring that “odd named pie” along with the peach-cherry and pumpkin. So yes, once again made Anthony’s Famous Chocolate Chess Pie to rave reviews. So Anthony thanks for posting that recipe a while back.

        • taw46 says:

          I didn’t know Anthony posted a recipe, I would like to see his. Mine is one someone gave me decades ago, very easy to make.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            This was better than the one I had used before. Noticed I even still have the link to the post at the bottom.! I tend to use hazelnuts unless I can’t find them.. I saved to right away in One Note which I used to keep all of mom/aunties/brothers medical notes and such so I could find it again.

            CHOCOLATE CHESS PIE
            INGREDIENTS:
            1 (9 inch) pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie (or if you’re brave, make your own, but substitute half the flour with hazelnut meal)
            1 1/2 cups raw sugar
            3 1/2 tablespoons cocoa
            1/2 cup butter, melted
            1/2 cup (4 ounces) heavy cream
            2 eggs, beaten
            1 teaspoon vanilla extract
            3/4 cup chopped hazelnuts*
            (*if you can’t find hazelnuts, use chopped pecans)
            DIRECTIONS:
            1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C)
            2) mix together all of the ingredients except for the eggs and hazelnuts over medium heat until sugar is melted and cocoa is incorporate.
            3) Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and while STILL beating, add about 1/2 cup slowly to the eggs to gradually increase the temperature. Then add the egg mixture back to the saucepan still stirring. Your mixture will thicken almost instantly, then you can add the hazelnuts and pour the mixture into the pie shell.
            4) Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 C) and bake for 30 minutes longer
            Let pie cool completely before serving.

            Maybe Anthony will see and correct anything that has not managed to make it through the multiple cut and pastes properly.

          • Anthony says:

            Mt.Laurel posted my version, which I stole from one of my little fluffs when he was in the shower. He was from the South and said it was his mother’s family recipe. Let me know how it differs from yours, and please share the recipe if it is. I’m at a point I can make it with my eyes closed now

        • Anthony says:

          So glad my recipe was a hit with you and your family! 🙂
          The recipe you posted was correct, no cut/paste drama

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            And no Interference from spammy and WordPress. They must have take the day off.

          • taw46 says:

            Anthony, yours is fancier, lol. Here’s mine, it makes 2 pies. Also Southern, it is so easy, I use to make it all the time. Haven’t in years.

            Chocolate Chess Pie – makes 2 pies

            4 eggs
            6 T. Cocoa
            3 T. Flour
            3 cups sugar
            1 cup milk
            1 stick butter (melted)
            1 tsp vanilla

            Combine cocoa, sugar, and flour. Add milk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla. Pour into unbaked pie shells and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

          • Anthony says:

            Almost identical I’m going to halve your recipe and give it a try. If I make 2 pies, I’ll regret it 😆

          • taw46 says:

            And thanks to Mt.Laurel for posting the recipe above. I will have to try it one day, it is fancy. Haha. Mine I posted is easy for us non cooks. 😁

          • taw46 says:

            Anthony, I could have halved it, but I was lazy. 😂

    It’s funny reading new Twitter where posts about mRNA side effects and Hunter Biden’s laptop actually show up.

  7. elliesmom says:

    I’m short, and I have a step ladder in my kitchen I use a lot, In the kitchen I designed myself, I had two of those library ladders that have a runner on the ceiling and wheels on the bottom. I could just run them along the floor on the two walls that had floor to ceiling cabinets. That wouldn’t work here so I drag my ladder around the kitchen. The other day I was standing at my counter filling dozens of cream horns and wishing I could sit on the top step of my ladder. I started thinking about buying a counter height stool for my kitchen. Do you remember those stools from the 50s that had steps in the bottom you could pull out and make the stool into a ladder? I’m wondering if I can find one of them. Then I could move my ladder downstairs where I can’t reach top shelves, too.

    • CalSteno says:

      Those kitchen chairs are from a company named Cosco. There are 50s/60s chairs on ebay and etsy plus new ones are sold from several stores.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yes, Amazon has them, I’ve had my eye on a red once for awhile 😀 I think it’s $110 because it has retro in the description 🙂

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Mom had one and it came in handy especially for when having to spend a lot of time doing prep work and at holiday time when all those items such as the punch bowl/cup set that were only used a few times a year were taken out. After she first came to live with me we made a couple trips to get a few more items and it was missing. No one would own up to having “borrowed” it permanently.

  8. Mothy67 says:

    Elliesmom did you as a teacher have to deal with PTA? I think those women are insane. There was a movie called Harper Valley PTA about 30 years ago with Barbara Eden. The busy body moms here are that gossipy bad. It is apparently news that I was seen walking into a liquor store after rehab. Someone took a picture. I bought my elderly neighbor wine for cooking.

    • elliesmom says:

      One year I fell on the ice outside the local Chinese restaurant, and a parent told the principal of my school I was seen falling down drunk outside their bar. My principal’s response was, “the last time I checked she was over 21.” But he knew I didn’t drink much so he called me to make sure I was OK and called the restaurant and chewed them out for not removing the ice. I don’t know which parent called him, but she probably would have fit in at Harper Valley.

      The high school where I taught was ginormous, and there was no PTA. There were parents’ groups that raised money for things like the band, the drama club, and sports. As a science teacher, I had no reason to interact with them. At the middle school there was a PTO, which was like the PTA, but with no state or national affiliation, The busybodies had run most sensible people off long before I became a teacher there and had left themselves with such a small group, they had no clout. There were parents who did things like run a school store for the kids, but they weren’t doing it as part of the PTO.

      While it’s nobody’s business but yours why you were in a liquor store, it is inconsiderate for someone to ask you to go there so soon after leaving detox. A true friend, even an elderly one, wouldn’t make recovery any harder than it needs to be. ❤

    I was watching Fox they were talking about Moscow, Idaho murders. Am I alone in thinking this feels like Sharon Tate. I cant imagine one person stabbing four people and leaving almost no trace. One person okay that is a crime of passion but 4 people? It seems impossible thatsomeone would have the energy to kill repeatedly. It would be exhausting. I read Child of Satan Child of God by Susan Atkins when I was 12. She was brutally honesthow they killed. I see parallels with idaho.

    • taw46 says:

      I still don’t understand how at least 2 other people were in the house and heard nothing. I guess they were drunk and passed out. And why weren’t they murdered? The whole situation is strange, everything the authorities say about it.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I think there had to be more than one person. The pictures of the girls look healthy. I have a 16 year old that is an athlete she would have no time for a boy that was obsessive. The stuff coming from Fox news makes no sense. One person stabbing four people. No. I might be wrong but I see, feel echoes of Manson.

        • taw46 says:

          None of it makes any sense, at least not the way law enforcement is reporting it.

          • lateblum says:

            I read something earlier this morning that indicated there are details the police are keeping hidden. Perhaps that’s why it doesn’t seem to make sense.

          • Somebody says:

            Leslie is correct, sometimes police hold back certain things. Signature or trademark kind of things, that they think will help them zero in on the perpetrator.

            The Gainesville murderer had such a signature, but it was never reported on the news. I assume the police didn’t want to tip their hand or perhaps they were worried about copy cats.

            I only know because FDLE was sitting in my driveway one morning after I took my kids to school. They asked me a lot of details about a man that did bad things to me and fully intended to kill me but fate intervened. He went to the nut house instead of the jail house. I presume he got out, hence their questioning. There was something very specific that put that horrible man and me on their radar.

            Gainesville, the state of Florida and the nation were frustrated and fearful back then, but behind the scenes the authorities were leaving no stone unturned. They poured through case files and followed who knows how many leads.

            I’m sure the authorities in Idaho are doing the same now. The FBI for all their faults is damn good at profiling murderers, as well as forensics. I don’t know, but given the high profile nature of this case there may be seasoned detectives on loan from other police departments. They will most likely find their man, and it was a man. It will take time though. He doesn’t want to be caught, it’s not like he signed his name in blood. From what I understand whoever it was, was very careful.

        • elliesmom says:

          You have Fox Nstion, I bet Nancy Grace will have as many details as there are out there. She tends to cover sensational crimes. If you like true crime, check out the murder of the nurses in Chicago by Richard Speck in 1966. No one believed just one man could have committed that crime,

          • Mothy67 says:

            I don’t like true crime. I try to avoid sensational stories. I have no power over that stuff. The story about that young woman who killed her baby violates me. I think her name was Casey Anderson. Nancy Grace and Greta Van Sustern were obsessed with it. I could not watch. I got hired a few years ago to do some research on Dean Corl. Netflix got incredible audience for Dahmer flick I got a call about what I had done. I said no I burnt everything I wrote about Dean. He used a nail gun to staple boys to plywood. He tortured young men to death. I never want to be a part of telling that story. A hundred million dollars could not make me tell what I interviewed with his conspirators. I met both. I wanted to die. I threw up. They raped and tortured young boys for 20 bucks.
            Funny thing though I was in rehab there were fewbooks but one was The Thorn Birds. I was a lonely gay kid who had lots of broken bones that parents provided. I had no idea how to live. My mom had Doubleday book club. The Thorn Birds arrived I read it and it changed me. I found a way to dream because I read an epic love story. I was inspired. I had been 12 fantasizing about suicide. A book made me dream.

            One of the nurses murdered by Speck was a high school classmate of mine. It was a small girls’ school so we were all friendly with one another. She was a sweet girl and as all good Catholic girls, she was taught to be submissive and respectful of others. I was in college hundreds of miles south of Chicago at the time. Our parents back home were terrified that he had fled to the southern part of the state. My roommates and I were just as scared as our parents because we lived off campus and had little protection where we were.

            The nurses were murdered the same day my grandmother died. I was 15. I remember everyone talking about it when friends came to sit with my mother.

    I was away for 11 days. There is no tv in rehab. I just found out Jeff Bezos gave Dolly Parton 100 million to give to charity as she sees fit. I have “always” loved Dolly since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I don’t even know what being knee high to a grasshopper means but I have loved Dolly since I first read Coat of Many Colors. ” Back to the seasons of my youth” I melted. She is now getting universal love. Judas Priest sang Jolene with her at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    I was out walking Ellie, and I just met some new neighbors. Their last name is Altos, and they have three black Ellies whose names are Tony, Paulie, and Silvio. They appreciated that I got the joke. They had a lovefest with my girl so they will be a nice addition to the dog walkers. 🙂

    I wish I had taken a second on Thursday to have said thank you. This place has meant a lot to me for years. Little things which helped me be a better guide for Shayla. I know I am flawed but all I want is to steer her in the right direction. I at this point have frequent flyer miles to rehab. I never had legal or financial issues. I checked myself into places because I owe baby girl integrity. I do feel like I have grown by coming here. Very decent folks. Dolly wrote I hope I see you down the road you meant more than I knew. I have been blessed coming here. Shay has been touched.

    Found out what all the sirens and helicopters were for a little bit ago that had the cats all on edge. Evidently we have a small plane caught up in the wires and around a pole a few miles from me in Montgomery County. Took power out for a large chuck of homes and businesses. Have had to take more off line while they try and cut the pilot and passengers out. One a better note than many of the stories this weekend, appears to be an accident with no deaths and everyone on board is in decent shape and no one on the ground/no home hit. Looks like they managed to stay outside the more restricted air space.
