Windy wet day.

So far we’ve enjoyed the very mild fall weather. Nothing
out of the ordinary. A few frosty mornings & rain showers early October but,
other than that, nice and sunny weather with 65-75F. Great for fall foliage
picture hunting :)
Today it’s a different story with a big weather-front
going through New England. Rain, rain, rain & wind, wind, wind. (where’s my
windsurf board!?) Unfortunately the wind is so strong (25-50 mph) that many
trees have lost a substantial amount of their beautiful coats … but, I cross
my fingers I’ll still be able to capture more of nature’s fall beauty.

Reflections

Early this morning, while the fog was still lifting in
surrounding areas, I went on a short hike along a nearby small river trail. Of
the pictures I snapped along the way, I particularly like the reflection of

Happy Columbus Day weekend


The weather up North should be excellent during this extended weekend and
we will be taking advantage of that to go leaf-peeping, as they call it. While
in our area foliage color change is around 30-50%, we are getting reports that
W-NW of here towards the mountains & New Hampshire it’s near or at peak, so
that’s where we’re heading. I for one can NOT wait to see what breathtaking
views we’ll encounter. I was eager to head NW last weekend already but the rain
& fact that it was reported at 75% kept us inside. Crossing my fingers for
some awesome photos.

First post

It’s a pretty exciting evening:

Welcome to
our “blog” * :)

While I still have some integration work to do
& need to fix a few details, I decided to bring this new part of the
homepage online. Offline I was pleased with the test results, and now I can see
if there’ll be more blog challenges ahead or if it’ll be a smooth ride.

Anyway, this was the first online post
:)

to worry about the coding part).
