Aug2,and 6 in NW skies
Think linked article had it visible at 80 minutes before sunrise and 80 after sundown. Could be wrong on the 80 minutes when.
Only definite is the dates. That should give everyone a chance of viewing with eye, binoculars , telescopes or lenses and cameras.
If using non digital cameras like film shutter speed of B , would keep shutter open longest time.
Digital might use scene>night landscape. Course I’ve yet to see one setting on all digital cameras.
So, ai’m charging all now😇.
Happy Friday, Porch Peeps,
We are enjoying (?) the effects of tropical storm Fay at the moment and all day apparently. Looks like it is raining sideways right now. Very tropical looking out there…all we need is palm trees.
The only good thing is that the temps are staying in the 70’s. The bad thing is that I can’t open the windows to enjoy the lower temps. Mother Nature giveth and then taketh away. Just glad I don’t have to venture out today.
My follow-up appt. with the periodontist yesterday was good. I can now drink with a straw, brush my teeth normally in the area of the implant, and start using Listerine again. Celebrated by stopping at…you guessed it, Starbucks, for an iced mocha on my way home.
The bad thing is that I still have to keep chewing on the left side of my mouth for 3 more months.
@LaDolceVita ...wow, that must have been a real mess at the mailbox! Be careful out there!
@Frozenoem ...when is the comet?...not standing out in the rain if it's tonight! LOL
All stay safe!
Friday afternoon all, oppressive heat, dew points in sweltering land. Stepped on porch and hit with wave of heat and instant drip factor.
Topical storm remnants will be gone by weekend, I’m hoping not used to this type moisture.
Hope everyone tries for their Neowise Comet pictures. 5-10 seconds or longer shutter speed and tripod, work best for using available light.
Another mail box related update. I realized that the flashing lights I saw on July 3rd in my driveway at 2 AM was a tow truck. I looked out after protracted barking and thought it looked like a tow vehicle but did not relate it to mailbox until days later. DUH!! There are also missing pieces from a phone pole nearby, skid marks all over the place. Maybe more than 1 car involved and no police report. I consider checking mail box a dangerous thing to do now.
The weather I like to complain about is here, looks like it will stay. The countdown to September begins. We usually get a whiff of fall by then even if it warms up again.
@DaveMcK I bet they are saying the same about the rain in China! About it going away and staying away I mean 😊.
Good evening to everyone on the Front Porch on this very rainy Saturday morning in July 9th, 2020! The word for the evening is rain, rain go away and stay away. A lot of thunder and lightnig with high gusts of wind as I'm writing.
I'm hoping everyone has a restful evening tonight.
79* sunny and time to finish mowing- yeah. Rain is coming again.
And now, I need to print a bumper sticker I saw and liked.Or iron-on t-shirt decisions, decisions and boredom.
Beginning to think it’s AARP gremlins in the machinery or tech’s at work on web site.
My font color changed to white, on white background, without my selecting color change. Reason my sig changed to blue type.
EZ enough to do on computer but, on phone I’ve never done it.
Thought I'd give it a stab on my computer and was freaked out when I got all the way to post!
Can't believe I got here! 😺
Now let's see if I can post a photo...
How about that....it worked. Hope to see you all on the computer tomorrow!
If you ever get around to posting a little more on your computer, might manage to get it working for you.
You might start with running a deep scan with antivirus program of entire hard drive and a drink.😎 Might take awhile.
I'm still shut out of the community forums on my computer. Was back for a day, and then nothing.
We are having the H&H days so typical of our summers.
Hope you all are doing well.
@Frozenoem ...love the COVID image.
Monday afternoon all, 79* and sunny.
After a solid week of thunderstorms it seems to be time to hay /mow the yard.
Think my expectations in 2020 are a little different than previous years. Never thought barber for haircut, radio shack for contact cleaner, or WalMart could be a highlight of the year.
It was SMH🤣. Waiting for electronics to dry out, cleaned my stereos. Reason for contact cleaner (not for lenses) but, for 1960-70 vintage stereos it cleans the volume, balance, treble or bass dials. And blowing out case with air, to remove dust bunnies.😷😷 Need mask for that.
It’s about as exciting and necessary as cleaning desktop pc’s for dust in heat sinks and cooling fans with air and alcohol pads. Same for laptops just smaller. How to keep them running.😎
