    No I am over in the Northeast Kingdom in a small town of about 700 people. Burlington is a little over an hour and a half away but it is an easy drive so we get over there fairly regularly.

    Very nice. The typical shot you see of my community involves police tape and mug shots, usually accompanied by text about a meth bust.

    That is spectacular. I've seen almost that identical view from different spots around Vermont and upstate New York (the real upstate). I love being on Lake Champlain, with the Adirondacks to the West and the Green Mountains to the East. I love the Lake Placid area, Au Sable Chasm, the Market St festivities in Burlington, etc. I miss the whole area.

    That's surprising. Mars might be kind of rough, but I always assumed it would be pretty quiet once you get past it.

    Wait, you mean Poughkeepsie is not the real Upstate New York???????

    It's funny - when I was growing up we got the Daily News and the New York Post (my mom loves rags apparently) and in the movie listings it always had our movie theaters listed under "Upstate New York" listings. Until I went to college in Syracuse I thought Potown was Upstate New York

    Oh, and it is 75 today here in Panama City Beach, Florida. But tomorrow I might have to wear a long sleeve shirt.

    I always got a chuckle over this topic when I lived there. It seems that people in the NYC area almost consider anything north of the boroughs to be "upstate". For me, I think of upstate being the area between Albany and the St Lawrence Seaway, and from Rouses Point over to Watertown or so. I'm sure you could ask 100 New Yorkers to define "upstate" and you'd get 100 different answers.
