It's funny, as time passes we see less and less of the actual disaster site and what's happening there. I was wondering how the cleanup is going and what stage are you fellas at now? And just where does all this material from the disaster site go? Somehow, I always manage to think of that event almost every day and it'll be a long time I'm sure till people forget about it. Keep up the good work.

Hey Big Fred and Cowboy Joe ... from Alberta Mike    Posted 11-18-2001 at 20:27:45       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Big Fred, I'm about an hour west of Two Hills, a buddy of mine used to teach school there and still lives in the area. Yes, it is a nice part of the country. And Cowboy Joe, I always envision that same thing, mountains, prairies, etc. but it's just not there for me out my back door. Now, how come Cowboy Joe lives in downtown New York? Isn't that an oxymorism or something like that?

Actually, I live in the Morningside Heights section of upper Manhattan, far away from Ground Zero. 200 years we had cows and sheep in this area. Now - subways, concrete and Zabars.

Although I live only a few miles from Ground Zero, and pass near it via the IRT subway every day to work in downtown Brooklyn, I have not set foot directly in the area. From my office window in Brooklyn Heights I used to have a clear line-of-sight view of the WTC. I had the day off that fateful day, so I had no view of the destruction, except live TV footage as events unfolded. However, on 09-12-01 I returned to work, and I viewed the thick black smoke. You probably have as much info on what is being done to restore the area as I do. How are things up in your pristine neck of the woods?

Well, I wouldn't exactly call it pristine, at least not anymore. Traffic is terrible and we get our share of pollution, etc. up here too. I live in a small town just east of Edmonton and we must have more cars and fast food franchise places per capita than Los Angeles I think. If I had any money, I'd get myself some property and move out in the country but things are expensive (like everywhere else I guess).

Are you anywhere near Two Hills? My wife's grandparents farmed near there. I never got up there before her Grandma Pearl died and there really isn't much reason for us to go up there now, but my wife thought it was a pretty nice place.

Alberta Mike - Some how I pictured you living on some ranch with a pristine view of the Rockies or prairie.
