Replacing fence

If I am replacing a fence, do I need a permit? It's going to be in the same place be old one is being removed from. Specifications are to code (height, etc). Thanks!

Local Window/Insulated Glass Unit Repair?

I want to get the Insulated Glass Units repaired in a couple of home windows (the seals are broken and they're fogging between the window panes). For various reasons, it's not practical to replace the windows or even to replace the existing IGUs. There are companies that come to your house and do such work, but I have been unable to locate one in the area. (Maybe Warren County Glass could do it, but they are retiring and closing up shop, very soon.) Has anyone had such work done and have a company to recommend?

Chinese Lanterns in Great Meadows

About an hour ago I happened to look up outside my house on Alphano Rd. and saw some Chinese paper lanterns floating through the sky. From what I see there were probably about 30 of them that went by one by one in a line.

Did anybody else happen to catch these in the sky? Anyone know if there was an event where they were launching these, or just an individual who decided to let them go?

I-80E / exit 26 on-ramp closed from Rte 46, 6/25 eve

Just a heads-up in case anyone else is heading East this evening... or trying to. 80E at 26 closed; 46E is now stop-and-go (at like 5mph), too. Suggest using Rte 517 and exit 19, and checking the traffic reports. This is truly awful. Going to be an hour late for dinner :-(

I hope no one was injured. They just spent a lot of money redecorating the place.
