Eclipsing America

The last time a total eclipse was seen in the US of A was during Woodrow Wilson’s time in the Oval Office back in 1918.
It was the late 1280s when a total eclipse of the sun traversed the Americas the way today’s eclipse traveled.
Next time will be April of 2024, a scant seven years from now.
Question is:
Will President Donald Trump eclipse the headlines about the sun and the moon when he addresses the nation tonight at 9 o’clock with his Southern Asian Plan and what to do about Afghanistan?
The US continues to be bogged down in its longest war in the Graveyard of Empires.

Eclipse Day, The Rochester C_J_L Bureau

Good afternoon to the Chief at headquarters in Indiana, Heyseed at the Missouri Bureau, and Mike here with me at the Rochester Bureau.
These two pictures were taken back to back at 2:10 p.m. ET.
Picture 1 is facing east from the Bureau.
Picture 2 is facing west from the Bureau.


This morning I visited one of my best friends homes. Had coffee with him, his wife and daughter. A beautiful family.
At the entrance to his home is this bench at the beginning of the private drive. I’ve always liked it because it is shaded. I’m not a great fan of a lot of sun. To me this is a perfect, peaceful setting.

Flooding in Rochester

Recently our CEO/Editor Mr. Mark Ivy told me to monitor the flooding problems here at the Rochester bureau.
As many of you I’m sure have heard, a lot of damage has been done to waterfront homes. The erosion of land, homes flooded out, etc. has now got to the point that Governor Andrew Cuomo has enlisted multiple agencies to assist and federal funding is on board.
See WHECNews10 link enclosed.
Yesterday I took a tour and shot a few pictures. As I walked the beach front, I can clearly see the banks, land being eaten away.

The Weather from Rochester!

Right now in Rochester it’s 56, with a high today of 74. A bit of a cool down as I like. Humidity has lessened. Here’s a look at the upcoming week.
