Where are we? Eh?

We are in North Country. So named because the rivers coming down off of the Northern Adirondacks flow north to the St. Lawrence River.

About Nicholville - it's a borough - it spans a few towns; it has it's own volunteer fire dept; it's own post office but no government; we actually will live in the town of Hopkinton. Confused? Good. Me to. eh?

I always thought that ending a sentence with the word "eh?" was a Canadian thang. Wrong - it's also a North Country thang. In fact many of the locals up here have what I would call a Canadian accent. The gal in the Nicholville phone company office accused me of having an accent (some kinda southern New England drawl). Did I slip Nicholville phone company past ya? Yep - Nicholville has it's own phone company - all 2,000 customers..... "eh?"
