    This could have been me shot!

    I grew up 1/2 mile from here and if I'd stayed the VFD was something people like me just did in upstate NY.  

    I'd have been really good at it too..

    dam, crazy poor dam idjit.

    Picture above shows Irondequoit Bay to the south, Lake Ontario above, north, Rochester is west to the left, and West Webster is behind and to the right, east.

    I knew those houses and shoreline very well, these used to be cheap summer homes built on the beach sand in the 20's, 30's and 40's and were kind of a rough neighborhood. The people there were more oriented with the city and Irondequoit to the west, later the bridge on the Irondequoit Bay outlet was removed and the neighborhood was isolated and Lake Road now dead ended just to the left, west in the picture.

    This is very sad indeed.

    My horrified condolences to the families and my classmates and neighbors.

    This machine kills Fascists.
