COVID-19 NH: Hardly Any Outdoor Dining In State Capital, Concord (N.H.)

by Anura Guruge

It was 11:30am, on a Sunny (but a tad mild (@60F)), Tuesday — 2nd day that New Hampshire restaurants were open for outdoor dining.

But, it was ALL empty or NOT set up.

We just saw two folks, a mother & daughter — & I drove up/down North & South Main St. as well as Loudon Road.

‘Red Arrow’ diner had picnic tables outside but was only doing takeout — and they were NOT busy.

I was sure (that my friend) Alex Ray’sCommon Man” would not only be all set-up, BUT BUSY. I was wrong. It was empty. Not set-up for outdoor dining. That makes no sense. They have a huge car park ideal for it.

So …

So?

What gives?

Just time?

This week, from what I see, will be kind in terms of weather. No heavy rain. Doesn’t look good.

Stopped by “Dominick’s“, in Chichester, on the way back. Another joint with a HUGE car park. EMPTY with a sign on the door that said “CLOSED”.

I was amused by her (and yes, it is a ‘her’) message on the sign.

Does SHE realize the coded message that was in THE SONG?

Help from my friends‘. HHHmmmm. SMILE.

I am sure. That would definitely help. SMILE.

There Will Be NO ‘Airport On Ice’ In Alton In February 2020 (Or Any Other Month).

The ice is too thin. It needs to be at least 12″ and they are concerned that we have sections where the ice isn’t that thick this year. I can believe that.

I have not seen any trucks on any of the local lakes this year. Yes, snowmobiles, but they are much lighter.

An abundance of caution, of course, but you can’t blame anyone for that. You really don’t want a plane going through the ice. That would be rather bad form. I couldn’t remember but it appears that we have had other years — even as recently as 2016 — when the airport was called off because of thin ice.

So, that is that. I will miss not being able to take my usual quota of pictures. Fingers crossed for next year; 2021.

Microlight (Ultralight) Over Lake Winnipesaukee, Alton Bay — August 20, 2019.

Being at the right place, at the right time. This, Alton Bay, at 6:40pm, Tuesday, August 20, 2019.

We were just idling along waiting 15-minutes for our Chinese takeout order to be prepared at J.P. China.

There were two of them, but I only managed to catch one. Heard them before I saw them. Quite the roar.

I have seen plenty of microlights over the Lake in my three-decades up here — but, to be fair, I hadn’t seen any in a long time till today. Neat. Made my day.

Teischan (13) was with me. She claims she can’t remember seen one before. So, I am glad she got to see two. Enjoy.

Went to the ‘Bay‘, which is about 10-minutes from our house, to listen to the band playing from the bandstand in the water. Beautiful evening, albeit a tad temperature-challenged for what was the first day of Summer 2019. The band had not thought about setting up some wireless speakers on shore. So, they didn’t sound great. But, a few nice boats cruising around and the light was good. So, I snapped a few. Wanted to share. Enjoy.
