General Discussion / Re: Roads Are Not Good I Guess
« on: December 17, 2014, 07:35:02 PM »
I live right down the road from where the accident occurred.  I was at the end of my driveway with my two daughters waiting for the bus and the roads around 7:25 Monday morning were icy.  One car saw the accident and put pressure on their brakes and they had a hard time stopping.  The same thing happened when the bus tried to stop at the end of my driveway.  He went to slow down and slid a good 5 - 8 feet before stopping.

General Discussion / Kittens
« on: May 04, 2014, 06:00:25 PM »
My brother-in-law mentioned to my wife and I that he would like to get his mom a kitten for mothers day.  Does any one know of anyone with a barn with a cat with kittens or anyone with a cat who just had a litter who need a good home?

Thanks

General Discussion / Corner of River Road and Fletcher Road
« on: May 02, 2014, 08:02:00 PM »
Just curious if anyone has ever been in an accident or close to being in an accident because someone ran the stop sign at the end of River Road?  A few weeks back, on my way home from work at roughly 7:30 AM, I was going up the small hill near the church and making the left hand turn onto Fletcher Road where I see a pickup truck flying down River Road, right through the stop sign.  I slammed on my breaks and he slammed on his breaks, missing my car by only a few feet.  The expression on his face and what he was doing with his hands and fingers made it seem like I was inconveniencing him...  I see this happen a lot, not only in the morning on my way home from work, but also in the evening on my way to work...  The Stop Sign is clearly noticeable, but  I rarely see anyone stopping at it.

General Discussion / Re: Are The Moles Getting To You This Year???
« on: May 02, 2014, 07:49:53 PM »
My cat(s) have been leaving at least one mole and one mouse on the back door step for the past 2 weeks.  Glad she is taking care of them, just wish she would find a better spot to leave them.

General Discussion / Phone Outage?
« on: July 24, 2013, 09:19:02 PM »
Anyone around the Fairfax / Fletcher border on Fairfax Road without home phone service through Fairpoint?  I noticed Monday night that I had no dial tone on my phone, which I assume something happened to the lines during the storm we had Friday night.  I called Fairpoint on Tuesday asking what was going on and they said they would send someone out by Friday to take a look.....

Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same problem.

Thanks.

I don't know if these are the same type of bombs, but a few weeks back, there was postings of Drano Bottle Bombs circulating on Facebook.  Like always, I checked snopes.com to see if it was a hoax and it turned out to be real.  There is also a video of one in action.

Heres the link - http://www.snopes.com/crime/warnings/bottlebomb.asp

Any idea on how far they are going to go with this project?  Where they left off 3 years ago all the way to Essex is awful....

General Discussion / Accident in Fairfax this morning?
« on: December 04, 2012, 09:21:05 AM »
My wife was telling me that on her way home from work this morning around 2:15, there were several state troopers just past Steeple Market.  She couldn't really see what happened because of all the blue lights, but she said when the police finally let her through, there were car parts in the road.  Does anyone have any information about this?

Anyone know what they are doing at the end of Westford Milton Rd where it meets Rt. 128?  It looks like they are making another road.... Just Curious.

General Discussion / Re: Comcast
« on: September 26, 2012, 08:41:41 PM »
When I moved 3 years ago, I was quoted ONLY $45,000 for 2 miles...  I love how the letter they sent me said ONLY.  Yup, let me just write you a check for that, but you can't cash it for another 100 years!

General Discussion / Comcast
« on: September 20, 2012, 05:02:32 AM »
I know there are several threads on this forum about Comcast, but since they are a few years old, I figured I would start another thread.

Does anyone know if Comcast plans on expanding service down Fletcher Road (if they even have service on Fletcher Road)?  You would think with all the new houses going up, they would want to expand their services.

Does anyone know where service ends?

General Discussion / Re: power out in Fletcher
« on: September 13, 2012, 09:48:52 PM »
I know it's a little late, but we lost power around 10:00 am Sunday morning.  It didn't make sense to me because it was sunny with a slight breeze.  I contacted Green Mountain Power and this is the response they gave me.  "Someone in your community cut down a tree, which fell and ripped down our lines. Crews are on the job.".

Power was back up around 3:00 PM that afternoon.

General Discussion / Plane flying low around Fletcher on Friday 08/17
« on: August 18, 2012, 04:55:52 AM »
Anyone else see the duel prop airplane flying around the Fletcher area on Friday afternoon?

I am right on the Fletcher / Fairfax boarder on Fairfax Rd and around 4:00 PM, this plane flew over my house (it wasn't too high either) and flew over again around 4:15.

Any ideas what this plane was doing?  Joy flying, looking for drugs, ect...

I've seen planes fly over before, but not this low to the ground before.
