Not as vividly red as it has been the last few days. That was the SMOKE from the fires out West.

Kind of a subdued sunset. Very peaceful. I enjoyed it. Hope you do too. Enjoy. SMILE.

Labor Day On September 7, Though ‘Late’, Is NOT Unusual.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


September 7 seems late. Yes, I invariably think of Labor Day as falling around September 3 or 4. BUT, it can fall from September 1 to September 7. It can’t be any earlier or later. First Monday of September. So, 1 to 7.

It fell on September 7 just 5-years ago. Yes, in 2015.

Also in 2009. So, this is the 3rd time since 2020.

The usual gap is 5- or 6-years. Then Leap Years kick in and throw it off for a 11-year gap. Those 11-year gaps are common in calendaring. It has to do with the 4-years between Leap Years & the 7 days in a week.

Anywho …

September 7 is not an anomaly. It happens quite often. 9 times in the last 56-years. That is an average of every 6.2-years.

OK? Cool? SMILE.

Tropical Storm ‘Isaias’ Was 80-Miles To The West, BUT Eversource Still Manage To Lose Power, in Alton (NH), For 8-Hours.

by Anura Guruge

Typical. Did NOT expect anything else from (bloody) Eversource.

We knew this was coming. Eversource is so predictable.

Yes, we had SOME blowing. Nothing major. NO TREES FELL AROUND HERE. We know! We drove around for an hour, at 10pm, looking for any fallen trees. A few small branches down.

Nothing to warrant an 8-hour power outage. Bloody Eversource.

Eversource only has about 160 customers in Alton. We are at the END of a line. No customers beyond us. The line ends with us, in Alton. So, more often than not, Eversource has no incentive or motivation to keep us going.

I am CONVINCED that somebody at an Eversource distribution center turns off our power during a storm so that the juice can be used somewhere else.

That power was restored at 3:14AM proves my point. There is NO WAY, no way in hell, that crews were out there at 3am moving downed trees & splicing power cables.

ONLY way power is restored at 3:14am is by somebody sitting at a station ‘pressing a button’.

Bloody Eversource.

Is There A ‘York Harbor’ In New Hampshire? I Saw This One At ‘York Harbor’, Maine.

Saw this in ‘York Harbor’, Maine. Made me smile.

I understand & appreciate the sentiment. Bravo. But, York is in Maine, NOT New Hampshire.

It is about 20-miles north of the border. I don’t think it was ever in New Hampshire. The river is a very clear marker.

I, the WALKER.

That is what I do. But, luckily, NOT EXCLUSIVELY. SMILE.

No. Nah. Just walking wouldn’t cut it. SMILE.

But, this is GOOD. I am PLEASED.

I Shot A Bald Eagle, In Maine (Timber Point) — Yesterday.

Where I shot it.


WHAT?

YOU thought I shot it with ANYTHING OTHER than my camera?

Oh, dear! You still don’t know me do YOU. SMILE.

Plus, as I am always saying: “I am NOT TOTALLY STUPID, just partially stupid”! I also know most of the U.S. Laws. SMILE.

This was a TREAT. I hadn’t seen an eagle, properly, in years. WOW. They are always so majestic.

Crazy thing. It was been HARRIED by two large seagulls.
