But not for long (I hope!). We are prisoners in the Ticonderoga house for a few hours while they pave our road. This project has needed to be done for many years, and when we woke to lots of street activity and big trucks lining up, we were ecstatic...except for not being able to go boating, of course.

I talked to one of the truck drivers waiting in line and he said that the blacktop has to come all the way from Hudson Falls and Chestertown, and they have to make multiple trips during the day. I believe he said the trucks each carry 13 tons of material.

The side of the new road has a swale so the rainwater is diverted to the storm sewers and not down into everyone's yards and driveways.This has been a constant problem in the area too.

We have been promised that we will be able to get out of our driveway this afternoon, which is good because we are headed home and then out to the monthly Guptill's car show. There should be a record amount of vehicles there because the past two shows had rain. I'll post photos of that, along with photos of a Sashay outing on Lake George, and our Thousand Island getaway, so stay tuned for more blog posts!
