Hi Mark, I'm nobody, just an old grandma but I have a "burning" question for you or anyone else here that might know.
A few days ago, during some pretty bad visibility weather my sister and I were sitting at the end of South Jamesport Avenue (in Jamesport:) 40 56 02 42N and 72 34 35 02W (latitude and longitude).
Looking across and slightly to the west we saw what must have been a white water tower above the trees in the distance.
We've been going nuts since trying to figure out the location of the tower.
Google earth seems to place it as somewhere around East Quogue. IF that's human visibility possible. If not, it seems it would have to be in Flanders somewhere.
IF it was a little farther west it's also possible it might have been the one near the police facility impound yard on Drag street in Westhampton (off Old Country Road, around the RR tracks. That one is at least white but it doesn't appear big enough to be visible.
There's also one on Old Meeting House Road in Quiogue but that one's red and white.
We've not been able to locate any other in Flanders OR East Quogue although both seem to have been considered as cites for fire observation towers at some time. I don't know when, or if, that was ever done.
So....If you have any ideas and the time, we'd be grateful if you can help us get to the bottom of this mystery.
And yes, we both seem to have a little too much time on our hands but still....
My E-mail is email@example.com. If you do answer this query perhaps you might send me a private answer in case I get lost on my way back to this site and, in the mean time look out for a couple old bats searching for water towers. We'lll let YOU know if we find it:)
I while back we talked about different halligan took modifications. You mentioned that you had added a lock puller to one that you had. Do you think you could send me a picture of the modification you did? You can shoot it to my work email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks Lt. Like I said, I've gone back and forth on that one for a while now. Is it still that case in the FDNY that the officers are not supposed to carry "large" tools, hence the development of "officers tools"?
