I don't know if this means anything, but yesterday while traveling through Buffalo, NY on my way to Niagara Falls, I passed a couple dozen or so military vehicles. Most appeared to be light utility vehicles and unarmored transports. Those traveling north/northeast on I-190 were flashing their desert colors while those headed more southbound wore traditional green camo. Nothing appeared nefarious so far as I could tell, and it's possible we simply had two groups of weekend warriors headed off to do maneuvers. However... It's been many years since I've seen any sort of military vehicle out on the highway, and I'm not too awfully far from a National Guard post. We know the military is moving all over this country, and I saw that for myself yesterday just a stone's throw from the Canadian border. Don't know if that's significant. Sorry for not having pics, but by the time I saw these guys they were already gone. Two days ago, a Blackhawk flew over the house headed east, and my son mentioned that he and some friends had seen several in formation a few days prior. I do live right along a commercial flight path, so planes, helicopters, and blimps are a frequent sight. The Blackhawks were a first, and do seem a bit unusual.
amy replied to a topic in News & Current Events ForumThank you, Storm. And thank you, Shep, for this site. There's none better.
amy replied to a topic in News & Current Events ForumI joined a month or so ago, and having always been more of a lurker than a participant (holds true for every forum) doubt I will ever make more than this one post. Sorry for that, as it seems to make joining anything pointless. I found you folks right around Christmas when you were all posting at DJ, and made it a nightly ritual to keep up with the day's happenings. You all post great stuff. My heart nearly broke when DJ went down, but within a week I'd found you again thanks to a link left at BiN. I've been lurking here daily ever since. Anyway, I'm Amy. Had always believed everything I was fed until one day I happened across a video about the Boston bombing that stopped me in my tracks. I don't remember what it was, but I spent the entire day reading everything I could; first about Boston, then Sandy Hook. I continued reading, watching videos, hanging in CT forums and learning that much of what I'd always thought true was nothing more than a well-scripted lie. Nothing's been the same ever since.
