After looking the other day, we had 2.75 inches. When it rains, it pours.

I have to check mine. I know there was a lot the last day or so. The Eastern Shore has gotten spots of it.

Hey Cap!! Things on the eastern shore are a bit interesting as well. I am still working at the same place I left town for. Nightlight is doing fine, although she has had to do a bit of travel back and forth to Carroll County for family reasons for the last eight or nine months. I was in Littlestown to meet up with friends at the Firehouse early on a Saturday morning a couple months back. I did a little tour of the ole' stomping grounds and saw the changes. I also was caught up on a couple notable folks who left town or passed that made me a bit melancholy. They were good folk who I thought highly of and worked with during my stay in the borough. I go past the old house to see that the family who purchased it is continuing to promote family love that the place needed after I left and made it a rental. We wanted long standing memories to be generated for the children that are growing up there. I even stopped up at Kennie's hoping I might run into you, but it didn't work out that day. :) I saw one of my former soccer players who works there to see that she is doing great and is still the wonderful person she was when she played soccer for me. Hope all is well with you and the family. Hope you are still involved with the horseshoe tourney. I love to throw shoes, but have yet to build a pit for myself.

We just moved to a new place outside of town that is on an acre lot, so things are looking up for a pit to throw. Best to you and everyone back in Littlestown. I continue to lurk, but seldom comment as I have been gone long enough to have a voice other than the occasional hello to friends still posting. Stay cool this summer. I am sure we'll run into each other in upcoming visits I have scheduled.

Nice to hear from you lekolight. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. New stores popping up and closing around here. Sometimes feels like I'm in a time warp.

Sorry to hear of this Mar. It appears that the "originals" from the previous board are being replaced by the next generation who seem to have found their way to this spot so they could join in on the town gossip, banter, or opinionated quips of their wisdom. We are getting down to the final few whether they be residents or lurkers from afar. The site has lost much of its humor and playful sarcasm about the "burro" since the heady days when Princess, Nite Owl, Shinto, Ben_Ricci, Capricorn, cookiemonster and Car_Nut used to roost and keep us up at night. Hope all is well with you Mar! I'll send you a note when Nightlight and I will be heading into the area in July. Best to you and the wife.

Went out to the Esso station to get my tank for grille filled and they have closed. Looks like the house next door is also vacated. What is happening there.

Yes he went in to hibernation in middle of May. But ol Snow Bird got to him
and he came out rather briefly. I believe in his previous life time he tried
to intimidate people. But he could not intimidate ol Snow bird.

I enjoyed some of his post's, although it was very difficult for him to post with out being critical of some one else. That is why I bestowed the name of professor on him.

He also earned the name of smoky the bear, from me. because I believe he was in law enforcement in his previous life time, where he could bully you.

I have the greatest respect for all people of law enforcement. He had it in for me as soon as he understood I enjoyed 2 residence's. I don't think he could get over it, because he had to flee this area because I believe he could not afford or chose not to afford the high cost of living here. The cost of living here is much less than my other residence.

I believe he will come shortly, as it is much early to bed down for winter.

Come on out smoky, we will try not to be to hard on you.

Stoners Farm Earthmoving Regarding Sediment Basin

The Stoners Farm Subdivision has an NPDES permit for the earthmoving that is on-going on the site. This site has had a NPDES permit for many years and the site has been gradually being built out. The developer Is now mass grading the remaining phases out at Stoners Farm Subdivision and filling in the larger sediment basin to a smaller size, since the Post-Construction Stormwater Management pond that will remain is smaller than the sediment basin that has been there for years, therefore, the reason that it is being filled in. This basin has been acting as a sediment basin for all those years even though it did look like a regular pond. The Adams County Conservation District is aware of the work that is going on to reduce the size of the sediment basin. I did have some conversations with the contractor doing the excavating and they told me that they had the PA Fish and Boat out as they were drawing down the water and they were removing the fish from the pond and relocating the fish.

Refer to your post 16438 on May the 15th. You promised you would not respond
any more. I guess it goe's along with your job you had, tell some one thing and do another. No wonder so many people don't trust them.

What was it that brought you out from your den? Was it the chicken poop thing, maybe some one passed by with some fresh made donut's, or did it just get stinky in the den.

How about that's folk's, the dummy got to the anointed one, the professor!

This is the one who could not afford the high cost of living in Littlestown, and packed up and went to the wild and so called wonderful state.

Get a life man!

Much like your attitude, it stinks.

Let's work on your punctuation now.

Mar, sound's like it could be a benefit, and perhap's fun, how ever in my case it probably would turn out to be a job, and I sure don't want a job.

How ever I would like to send the smell of fresh chicken or duck poop to one of my neighbor's. Perhap's even down to W Va.

How is my grammar now?

Snow Bird, I seen this today why you should have chickens in your back yard.
TIPS FOR STEERING CLEAR OF LYME DISEASE Ways to tick proof your property: Keep the grass cropped short. Create natural barriers from wood chips and gravel that ticks don’t like to cross. Consider raising backyard chickens—they love to snack on ticks and you’ll have fresh eggs every morning.

To Littlestown Borough Water Customers:

I am writing to explain the loss in pressure to our water system last night (5/31/2017). The Borough is in the process of rehabbing our two town water tanks. As you are well aware one is located on Cemetery street which has been completed and the other located behind Alpha Fire company is scheduled to be done starting next week. In order to complete the work it is necessary to drain the tank completely in order to refinish the inside of the tank. This process is completed by isolating each tank so one tank can be drained without effecting the other. During this process one of the valves failed causing us to lose levels in both tanks enough to drop our pressure. The problem was corrected last night and the water level in the tanks are increasing thus increasing the water pressure supplied to your service. As of 10:30 am today 6-1-2017 most residents are reporting normal pressures and the system has returned to normal operation. Over the next three weeks we will be operating on one tank however we do not expect any interruptions in service to our customers. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused but it was a situation beyond our control.

Will our water pressure be bad until the job is complete?

/m16453 - Water Tanks. The last time they were drained, cleaned, and painted was in 2006. I was on council then and on the I & I committee that recommended that they get serviced ASAP. We had pictures of the insides and it was in desperate need of help then. I think they took out about a 4'x4'x6' amount of sludge and debris out of the tank behind the firehouse. Mt. Olive was in a little better shape, but needed several repairs. Several of the ladders inside and out needed to be welded to strengthen them. Several of the mounts for the transmitters were also found to be faulty.

Cap, I think it is to be done every 10 years
Cap and Charlene you know I'm almost on top of it and more noise for 2 weeks. Then sometime in the future the worst will come when they take the fire house down.
