What an AMAZING Fall this has been in Central New Hampshire. The most vivid color in a many a year and I did use the singular there since this was a Fall dominated by red, red & more reds — all glorious. All these pictures were taken on Sunday, October 22, 2017 within 2-miles of our our house. Some of them are Locke Lake in Barnstead. The others are off a private property that I now have access to in terms of taking pictures. The owners called me at 9am to tell me to get up there are take some pictures! That was very kind of them. I didn’t need to be asked twice. The rain we will have this week will, alas, knock down most of the foliage. So, this could be close to the last hurrah, but rest assured, I will keep on snapping away. Enjoy.

Last weekend we went apple picking at ‘Appleview Orchard‘, in Pittsfield, New Hampshire — per what has now become an annual custom. Appleview is a commercial apple farm, with the trees pruned and sprayed for easy picking.

This was a at a ‘local’ blueberry farm. We were helping out the owners. They just hadn’t had time to get around to picking these apples. So, I volunteered to pick them for them. It was fun. Reminder me of ‘Cider House Rules‘. This farm, on 42-acres, is, in my opinion, the most beautiful farm in this area. I love being there. So, that was a bonus. They let me take pictures. That makes me even happier.

“North American Power” 9.29cent/kWh Rate For 2-Years, In New Hampshire.

The 8.59¢/kWh rate I was lucky enough to get in October 2016, i.e., a year ago, ALAS, came to an end.

9.29¢/kWh was the best that I could get, as of October 2017 — BUT I managed to get it for 2 years, i.e., until October 2019.

I think I am cool with that. That is exactly the rate I signed-up for in 2015. So, I am not a stranger to it. Obviously better than any of the other rates offered by North American Power. So that is good.

I did some research. I am happy with that rate (I think). {Smile}

All of these were taken on Friday, October 20 & Saturday, October 21 in Alton — albeit at the two ends, some in East Alton and others in West Alton. We haven’t had much rain to knock the leaves off. So the show continues in all its splendid glory. Enjoy.
