Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

I live near Binghamton, NY, which has had record precipitation this year. This past winter, the area got more snowfall than Syracuse, the major city with the greatest average snowfall in the US. I posted pictures of a  snowfall. But the precipitation hasn't stopped in warm weather. We're on our way to setting a rainfall record as well. Last Tuesday, I happened to be in a spot where I could get a good long look at the…
