Br. Jay Hochberg and Flooding In Northern New Jersey

Brother Jay Hochberg over at The Magpie Mason blog is reporting a major flood at the Scottish Rite Valley of Northern New Jersey in Lincoln Park. Friday when Jay took this photo, the water was two to three feet deep, but the river was expected to crest at five feet, and the Valley's building was already flooded.

Jay is a part of the team that creates the Journal of the Masonic Society, a regular poster on the MasonicLight Yahoo group, and a tireless reporter of Masonic activities in the Northeast US. He reports that he is okay, but that he is using a neighbor's computer to check his email. Take a moment to keep Jay and the folks in this part of the country in your thoughts and prayers.


PLEASE sign or otherwise identify yourself in your comment posts. I have been FLOODED for months with spam comments, and I've been forced to laboriously screen every post now. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
