Wow! [In reply to] Can't Post

Those elevations flummox me Kim! The tallest point on Long Island is 122 feet. The average height above sea level is *I think* a whopping 17 feet, or something ridiculous like that.

Adding: And Congrats on Rivendell!!!!! Take it easy on the cordials at first though, its strong stuff.

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

sorry you are experiencing such alarming weather [In reply to] Can't Post

 
we on the east coast may especially empathize, as almost this time last year we were hit with sandy.

rather scary when the weather is powerful enough to make a serious mark. i have a friend who lives in colorado, and she says it's quite bad.

glad you're safe. : )


cheers --

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

Thanks Maciliel [In reply to] Can't Post

I was actually just visiting family, and left for home (Seattle) just before the weather broke. Luckily, they're all ok, but it sure is scary.

Sorry to see the news about the New Jersey boardwalk fire - heartbreaking it happened just after being rebuilt and opening up again.

Oh, wow. I'm glad you got out. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have friends in Estes who posted on facebook that while they're fine, they can't get out, and may not be able to for a long time to come.

Me too [In reply to] Can't Post

Especially now that I've experienced the drive over View Ridge Road - a little nerve-wracking even in good weather. Wow, that's just incredible that they may not be able to get out for a long time.

Well, I was wrong. [In reply to] Can't Post

I just heard on the news that they've opened the Peak to Peak Highway from Estes Park south, and they can get to Boulder from there, which surprises the heck out of me. Only people from Estes are being allowed to go that way, though.

Lodge is on riverside drive [In reply to] Can't Post

Now I remember it, we stayed nearby...saw an elk and baby next to the road...that whole road was flooded, saw YouTube vids posted by residents...crazy, I feel for the people...I loved visiting and want to go back. Rocky Mt. National park. Hiking to Dream Lake and Emerald Lake felt very middle earthy!
