It may get clogged, but a hell of a lot nicer to look at. Center divider often is grass and beautiful old trees, not concrete. No trucks, and not constantly UC like 95 makes this almost always the best alternate.

Virginia doesn't really belong in the NE/Mid-Atlantic forum. There's no room for you. We'd have to slice off Maine and send it to the Canadian Maritimes.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask so sorry if i'm in the wrong section. I am looking for an affordable hotel in Boston from the 26th of january untill the 28th (two person room). The budget is around 160 dollars for two nights. Sorry again to bother you but I couldn't find any affordable place in Boston myself. Thanks!

Actually in Boston? Near the airport is probably your best bet. You can also get a cheap hotel hear an Interstate or major highway, especially if you don't care if you're not in the city limits.

Try kayak.com, hotels.com, or orbitz.com for hotel deals, as well.

11 strangest abandoned places in Pennsylvania.

Some of these are pretty lame, but most are pretty cool.

HI guys!
Just to share the news on a Gourmet Food Business we opened in Bethlehem, PA.
We import gourmet coffee from Colombia, Premium Chocolate from Brazil and ašai, guava and banana sauces from Brazil too.
We are also looking for independent sales reps in the region.
I have been an active member of the forum for 13 years. I just wanted to share the news and the only area for "non-development" news/comments in our region was this space.
www.lehighproducts.com

Thank you!

Interesting. My sister is going to school in that area. I'll have to look into that. The guava sauce sounds pretty good!

I gave this thread a new name to give it some new life. Imagine yourself sitting in a booth at your local diner, like so many across the Northeast, shooting the breeze!

Which is better: Wawa or Sheetz? The age-old question was answered in this article:

We had a 4.1 earthquake here in Delaware today, epicentered near Dover. I noticed it here; the HVAC and pipes rattled a little bit.

That's pretty strong for the East Coast I think.

I've never felt an earthquake here, but there are some in the rural areas and in the Southern Tier/Cattaraugus County, that my dad felt in the past.

The 5.1 earthquake in Virginia was felt into Upstate New York, so some people in Buffalo may have felt it. Earthquakes on the East Coast tend to be shallow, which means they ripple out easier.


By the way, this woman is right.
