    (Please forgive this "form letter" post to my friends. I'll be more personal next time; I promise.)

    Hope you are doing great and got some autumn color. I am sure we have no monopoly on beautiful trees, lol.

    We're still in North Carolina near the mountains. I have taken over 4,000 images, 3/4ths of which have been deleted: bracketed shots, etc. Objective is in the next few days to have a bunch posted here on Fotki. We plan to return home in January. I want some mountain snow, river bed snow, etc. We don't get much snow where we live; it's very rare if it doesn't melt on contact with the ground.

    The first Blue Ridge Mountain snow fell the last day of October or the day before. We were in Marion, North Carolina November 1, 2012 and a few of my images there reveal the distant snow on the mountain range, :-).

    I hope you and your family are all ok Boris.  Wherever you are and whatever is happening at this dramatic time may your God be with you.  Best wishes to you, from Pebs

      Thank you!
       No electricity until petrol to be had and most supermarkets closed or have empty shelves. I`m fine and can live on Macaroni and Cheese forever.In my 64 years I have never seen this kind of destruction. What I find amazing that the death toll is so low (about 100 died).....very fortunate.

        Glad you're ok Boris :-)  We are roughly the same age and probably both grew up with far fewer luxuries than the modern western world expects to have as a norm now, but we  still need our few necessities.  Such a dreadful thing to have happened.  I hope your home is ok.  In the UK we've seen some heartbroken folks on tv who have lost everything except their lives.  Stay as warm as you can, enjoy your macaroni cheese, and hey! go you! you're back to uploading photos!....  Take care... good to hear you're ok  :-)

    Thanks to whoever set up this website.  Luckily for me though, I have TONS of my own personal photos of Upsala from 1985 - 1989 and even of the last homecoming game!  Its was sad to see the condition of the school now but I am heartened by my own memories and my own personal store of pictures!  You have done a good thing here, I hope others will appreciate it!
