Nine Facts about Nut Ridge

Nut Ridge is a small community on Cayuga Lake in upstate New York. My family has had two cottages there for four generations.  Over those 70-some years, nine facts have always rung true:
  1. There are no mosquitos.
  2. The water was always warmer last week.
  3. 2 bid = 3 trump and no bower.
  4. It never rains.
  5. It will blow off the dock and into the water.
  6. Voices carry farther than you think.
  7. Wind out of the north blows for 3 days.
  8. Everything tastes better over a driftwood fire.
  9. There's never been a more beautiful sunset.
There is no debating this. It is the word of Pratt.
