Welcome to Rochester, New York!

Have arrived in Rochester, New York, just in time to experience the budding of the lilacs. Each year Rochester has an amazing lilac festival, and this year I have arrived in time for their 125th anniversary. The Festival is May 12-21st in Highland Park, and here is the website for the event..


Left at 6 a.m. for my trek to the “Flower City,” arriving at 7:30 a.m. Found the hospital where I will reside for the next 13 weeks, and more importantly a charging station in their hospital garage. Sadly, after 3 1/2 hours the charge has only increased 23% from 48% to 71%, which is awful, but, giving it another 2 hours to see if arrival at the magic 100% mark occurs.

I sure am earning my $7500. tax credit – believe it should be $15,000 by now with all the aggravation!

In checking web sites there are no fast chargers in the Rochester area so am exploring the purchase of an electronic bike or moped – will keep you posted.

Short term housing is another aggravation for all travel nurses. Housing that I thought was a fit was too inner city for me. Rochester has a very high rate of car thievery, so one must be careful where they live though Kia Souls and Hyundais are the main cars stolen. And while I am told Rochester P.D. are exceptionally good at finding the thieves, would prefer not to have to go through the process.

Of course if they stole an EV am sure they’d ditch it in a pinch. Too much aggravation.

So that’s it for today. Need to start searching for a place to live.
