Yesterday, I had an appointment in Ogdensburg, NY which is around 30 miles north of where I live. We go there at least once a month for shopping. They have a Walmart and there is less traffic than 30 miles south of us in Watertown.
So, that is how I happened to be alone on this trip and I took advantage of it and stopped to take a look at the St. Lawrence River. This is the day after Hurricane Sandy went through. I am on the US side. On the other side of the river is Canada. The St. Lawrence River runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes.
