Piscataway is the town between my home town and my workplace! Not only that, my company has an office in Ottawa. I'm on the phone with them every week and email them daily. And yes, winter is like a trip to the beach compared with the temperatures you have in Ottawa. I haven't been there yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I worked in Piscataway for a while. We argued over whether the nickname should be "Piss that-a-way" or "Piss the cat away". You should buy tires here if they're that expensive there. I bought my Nokians in Piscataway! They were about $90 each. -- Tom Reingold Noo Joizy
