were everywhere. It ended up real close in Erie County. According to NY Times interactive map, Erie County : Hochul 50.1 % Zelden 49.9% with 92% of the votes reported. Almost all the other counties in Western New York went to Zeldin, so I'm glad enough of the other counties came through.

An asshole who lives a few houses down from me put 3 Zeldin signs in front of his house. One wasn't enough apparently. He also flies a Trump flag and a yellow Don't Tread on Me flag too. He will be bitchy tomorrow with the results. When Trump lost, he didn't remove his Trump signs for like 2 months.

we have crazy dumpers near us as well, one near where I walk has dump 2024 flags and never took any older ones down... it feels like being surrounded by nazis and fascists to me. Fortunately they are not really close and I don't even know them, but see it on my walking routes and I always say, here comes the humper house for that particular one, lol.

plus we don't know the congress yet... we just saw predictions of 4 house seats in trouble in NY. Still hoping for the best.
