Here’s a video I took (sans tripod), Wednesday night. I had wondered what it would look like from my spot on the beach which is about twenty miles away from Cape Canaveral . It was probably a once in a lifetime experience for me. There are fewer “firsts” as we age. There was also a full moon out over the Atlantic. Thanks Marlene for the “launch alert.” It was something to see! There’s a still shot and then the video, see the blast light up the sky.
Here’s the video for the patient. It’s 3 + minutes long. It was remarkable to witness the launch.
Last time I visited the Children’s Museum was August 2019. Today I returned with grandsons Charlie and Roy. (And their Mom, Laura) stopping to see “the pipes” is a family tradition. Ned Kahn is the artist who created this living and breathing sculpture.
How it started- Groundhog’s Day first celebration in Punxsutawney was in 1886.
“If Candlemas Day be fair and bright, Winter will have another fight. If Candlemas Day brings cloud and rain, Winter will not come again.
A Scottish saying:
If Candlemas be fine and clear, There’ll be two winters in the year.”
Here’s a 2014 blog post about the movie Groundhog Day filmed in Woodstock, Illinois.
