We’ve had more than few in Maine on beaches, and they were closed to pedestrians, and dogs. To prevent disturbing nests.

 

I missed out on bad storms yesterday, no high winds mountains kept me safe. Admit the twister warnings in Manchester, NH kept me on my toes.

 

Today it’s 71* and sunny with possible downpours when temps spike to upper 80’s.

 

Saw the FL panthers piece re: there walking. Believe that a couple will need to be captured for study.

 

Unfortunately with T in WH, endangered species may face more extinction risk. I’d post link ordinarily but, not today.

 

This is my poke and prodding day, afternoon. Tonight with luck might find my Klamps and solder speaker connection, if I can voluntarily get down on knees.Not picking up speaker🤣.

 

I leave you with this last picture for the day, slightly staged.😇

Greetings,

Well, SandyHook is a buzz today.  The 🐦 that have made their home there over the summer for nesting, have new mouths to feed. Can someone please share pictures. These 🐦 are on the endangered list. 

Also, 3 fisherman caught a 500 lbs shark, off SandyHook. 

Not sure if anyone else saw on the news about the Panthers in Florida. They seem to be having trouble walking.  I hope someone finds out what is going on with them.

Just got in New Jersey. Storms later. Everyone take care of yourself and enjoy your day.

@catwoman500   Haha, I tease some of my friends who are mostly careful about using sugar that it is proof they are real southerners as they always have "sweet tea".  Would not consider it any other way.  I started drinking ice tea in Texas, where it is unusual to sweeten it. 

 

Looks like fall will come in on the schedule I ordered!    Much cooler night temps coming by September 1.  Of course nothing changes like the weather forecast.

@DaveMcK 

 

As long as the temps don’t hit 88-90*+, I’m golden. Above those temps I melt.

 

Rain ask me Wednesday, lightning same just checked the connection on my lightning rods, every year. 

 

Sweet tea like the Arizona brand is great, the stuff they used to serve in some chain restaurants in the south were good for gagging - too much sugar. Shoney’s maybe?

 

As for iced coffee here, cold brew only served in restaurants in town. The leftover hot coffee becomes ice cubes. Same as @n566192l .

 

Time to return to search for elusive 3,4, and 5amp AGC fuses, finally dragged the speakers into house, and my Amp needs fuses.

 

Or else the possible *-in-law will be wounded, for touching my 50 year old speakers. Have had them awhile and don’t want to re-cone or re-solder connections, ever🤣.

Good afternoon to everyone on the Front Porch on this Tuesday in August. Golf was a bit of a challenge for  our group of four today. The rough had not been mowed in several days and the fairway was wet form dew. Not the greatest of playing conditions to say the least and our score card reflected it.

The weather for the next several days is for a high of 80* and a low chance of rain. Hoping golfing is better Thursday morning. How are those of you doing on the  East  coast dealing with the possibility of heat, rain and wind today?

 

As for the iced tea vs iced coffee I like both. I buy unsweetened iced tea by the gallon bottled from the store and I use leftover coffee to make iced coffee.

Good afternoon, Porch Peeps,

After a trip to the post office and florist I am back inside safe from the heat humidity and possible pop-up weird weather things.

@MsStretch, @Frozenoem ...

Oh, the diners and cheap restaurants we went to in my youth always used to have iced coffee on the menu. Lucky Froze! I’m sure you can order it here, but it would probably be hot and melt all the ice right away and then be diluted. Like the idea of @n566192l 's coffee ice cubes for that.

I really don’t care for hot tea, but I will drink it if we go to a “tea” somewhere and there is no alternative. I love iced tea and usually brew it outside in the sun (we used to call it “sun tea”) with fresh mint…which reminds me I need to do that right after this post.

 

Oh, that sweet tea in the South! I never noticed it before until we went to Tennessee for my stepson’s wedding back in 1988. At the hotel where we stayed, there was always a pitcher and full glasses of sweet tea on the restaurant tables. I told the waiter we didn’t order that and he looked at me like I had 3 heads and said, “That’s your sweet tea!” My what now?  Cat LOL Guess we Yankees just aren’t “with it.” Then I noticed everywhere we went there was sweet tea served automatically. I sure don’t remember that from traveling in the South when I was a kid. I prefer to add my own amount of sweetener to my tea thank you very much. The way it was served, it was like tea flavored Kool-Aid! Cat Tongue

Hang in and stay cool! N.

I even put coffee in icecube trays. 

New Jersey has a heat wave up until this Wednesday.  I just hope people watch their pets and neighbors living alone. Be careful and safe everyone.

@catwoman500, @Frozenoem , I do remember iced coffee on menus, but not around here.  I guess Virginians prefer iced tea and lately, more places offer sweetened iced tea which is a southern thing.  Never did acquire a taste for tea, hot or iced.

 

Coffee is a must.  Caffeine headaches are a bee-yatch.

@catwoman500 

@MsStretch 

 

Iced coffee is still on local menus, for me it’s cold brew for high test at home.

 

I need caffeine - requirement of life.

71* presently humidity climbing, and storms rolling in for later with higher temps. 

 

Time to get moving.

Good morning to everyone on our Front Porch on Monday August 19th.  It is 64* now with a high of 81 with sunny skies today.  An early start today because of an early tee time today. Tomorrow I will have to get up earlier because  of an 8:00AM tee time.

Hoping everyone has a great week!
