Google Maps: Area Codes In NY State

Today is the last day you can dial only seven digits to get a local number in the 518. Starting at midnight tonight, you will have to dial the 518 area code, even with making a local phone call. There aren't many parts of New York that don't have overlays, 10 digit dialing has become the norm in our state. This interactive map shows area codes in our state.

Data Sources: USGS Area Code Base Map (updated with new area codes). https://www.sciencebase.gov/catalog/item/4f4e4a19e4b07f02db605716 and Wikipedia: List of Area Codes. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/List_of_New_York_area_codes

As we head into the second half of August, average temperatures are dropping, with only one more week where the average temperature will be 80 or above. That said, we can still have very warm days — 100 degree weather in September is not unheard of — but is rare. September 9, 2016 was 89 degrees. Sunset times have already started to come much earlier, 33 minutes earlier then late June — and will only continue to get earlier.

Sixty eight degrees but with the dewpoint around 65 this morning, the fresh air feels nice on the express bus heading downtown. Didn’t quite leave my apartment by so called BOB time, aka 8:08 AM but I was to the express bus station in time. I’ve gotten good at crossing in crosswalks, you just stare down the motorists and step out into the crosswalk. Also, they’re done with the tacky McMansion that they built down the street, so no construction delays walking past that.

The sun will set at 7:54 pm with dusk around 8:24 pm, which is one minute and 29 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for mostly clear conditions and 75 degrees. The dew point will be 59 degrees. There will be a west-northwest breeze at 9 mph. Today will have 13 hours and 50 minutes of daytime, an decrease of 2 minutes and 33 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low of 55 degrees at 5am. Five degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 59 at 6pm. Northwest wind 3 to 8 mph. In 2016, we had partly cloudy skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It was somewhat humid. It got down to 66 degrees. The record low of 40 occurred back in 1979.

I think I’m pretty much done with going to the park after work now. I like to leave at dusk because around then they start to chase people out around then. And dusk is getting closer to eight which doesn’t leave much time by the time I got home from work and have dinner unless it’s a really quick dinner. I guess I can always go to the library and sit outside if I want to use the wireless internet.

I am hoping I get those eclipse glasses soon. I was told they were mailed first class a week ago from Idaho, but they were non-machinable, so they may have gotten held up from the post office. They weren’t expensive, but if I don’t get them, I won’t have them for the eclipse. I need them by Friday, so I can take them camping, if I plan to use them on Monday.

I am still undecided on where I will go from Saturday to Wednesday. If I don’t get the glasses, I may very well go up to the Adirondacks, because the increased eclipse in Finger Lakes or Pennsylvania is meaningless if I don’t glasses to view it. I spent a lot of time — abit rainy days — in the Finger Lakes this summer, so I’m not sure if I want to go there. I do like the pool in the hot sun, and I didn’t have much of that on vacation, but I’m not sure if I want to do that. But If I go to the Adirondacks, I am going to need to buy a kayak paddle. Hopefully the Adirondack Kayak Warehouse in Amsterdam would have a paddle that would fit my size. I am also considering the Allegheny National Forest and maybe Erie, PA but that is a very long drive for a relatively short week.

Today in 1916, the Migratory Bird Treaty between Canada and the United States signed. It was designed to save Migratory Birds by giving them international protection for the first time by placing limits on hunting and other means of taking.In 1989, a solar flare from the Sun creates a geomagnetic storm that affects micro chips, leading to a halt of all trading on Toronto’s stock market.

Also, in 1993, Debian Linux is announced, it would become the basis of many forms of Linux like Ubuntu Linux, which is currently what I run on my laptop.

And in 1966, the House Un-American Activities Committee begins investigations of Americans who have aided the Viet Cong. The committee intends to introduce legislation making these activities illegal. Anti-war demonstrators disrupt the meeting and 50 people are arrested.

As previously noted, next Wednesday is Last Day with Average High of 80 when the sun will be setting at 7:43 pm with dusk at 8:13 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 80 and 50 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 80 degrees. We hit a record high of 94 back in 1947.

Good morning! What day is it? Save the Pine Bush Dinner day, of course. Next Wednesday is Last Day with Average High of 80. Cloudy and 65 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a northwest breeze at 5 mph. The dew point is 62 degrees.

Today will have patchy fog before 8am. Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high of 81 degrees at 3pm. Typical for today. Maximum dew point of 63 at 10am. Northwest wind 5 to 9 mph. A year ago, we had mostly cloudy skies with some clearing in the afternoon. It became very sticky as the day progressed. The high last year was 83 degrees. The record high of 97 was set in 1936.

Good evening! Partly clear and 73 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a south-southwest breeze at 5 mph. The dew point is 68 degrees. We had a brief rain shower but now that’s done. The muggy weather ends tomorrow around 3 pm.

Went down to the park but after about 30 minutes I saw on the radar that a severe storm was heading my way, so I hurried home. A few raindrops fell and I got a bit wet but the severe weather stayed south of me. 

Tonight will have a slight chance of showers before 9pm. Patchy fog before 3am, then patchy fog after 5am. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low of 62 degrees at 5am. Two degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 68 at 8pm. Southwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 20%. In 2016, we had partly cloudy skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It became sticky as the night progressed. It got down to 68 degrees. The record low of 41 occurred back in 1972.

Tonight will have a Waning Crescent Moon with 26% illuminated. The moon will rise tonight at 1:33 am. The New Moon is on Monday night with mostly clear skies. The Harvest Moon is in 3 weeks. The sun will rise at 6:03 am with the first light at 5:33 am, which is one minute and 4 seconds later than yesterday. Tonight will have 10 hours and 8 minutes of darkness, an increase of 2 minutes and 33 seconds over last night.

Tomorrow will have patchy fog before 7am. Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high of 82 degrees at 3pm. One degree above normal. Maximum dew point of 62 at 8am. Northwest wind 5 to 9 mph. A year ago, we had mostly cloudy skies. It was somewhat humid. The high last year was 83 degrees. The record high of 97 was set in 1936.

Right now, a split verdict on the weekend. Saturday, a chance of showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 82. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Maximum dew point of 66 at 6am. Sunday, mostly sunny, with a high near 82. Maximum dew point of 65 at 7pm. Typical average high for the weekend is 80 degrees.

I am taking a long weekend through Wednesday for a road trip but where I am undecided. I still haven’t received my eclipse glasses, I’m worried that they might not arrive in time. I was originally planning on going back out to the Finger Lakes but I’m looking for a new adventure…. Maybe the Allegheny National Forest or even Erie Penna to see the eclipse better  but that’s a long trip. I’m off from Saturday through Wednesday, so I can pretty much go wherever I want to. Thinking unceasingly of taking NY 30 North and maybe paddling some lakes and checking out the St. Regis Canoe Area or Lows Lake. I also haven’t seen much of the Green Mountains in recent years so that might be another fun option. I’ll have to decide by Saturday. 

Lost my credit card and had to close out the account. After a week and a half I finally got a replacement card. It’s been a pain not having a credit card. Sure I have a debit card but it doesn’t always work everywhere and I like having a backup as I don’t carry a lot of cash typically. 

In four weeks on September 12 the sun will be setting at 7:09 pm, which is 46 minutes and 40 seconds earlier then tonight. In 2016 on that day, we had patches of fog, mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 77 and 49 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 74 and 53 degrees. The record high of 94 degrees was set back in 1947.

Looking ahead, Friday the 13th (October) is in 7 weeks, Average High is 60 is in 2 months, Election Day 2017 is in 12 weeks, Average High is 40 is in 13 weeks, Election Day 2018 is in 64 weeks and Election Day 2020 is in 168 weeks.

Some rain on Friday but other than that it looks like we have a nice week ahead, sunny and warm come early next week.

In 1969, the Woodstock Music Festival Opens on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm in Bethel, much to the distaste of his neighbors and fellow community members. Also, on this day in 1971, President Richard Nixon completes the break from the gold standard by ending convertibility of the United States dollar into gold by foreign investors.

Good evening! Mostly cloudy with some drops of rain and thunderstorms and 67 degrees in Delmar, NY. Enough rain to chase me back in. Calm wind. The dew point is 64 degrees. Sticky with the air so saturated, a low fog around. The skies will clear around midnight. 

It was the final night with a sunset after 8pm for the year with days only getting shorter as winter approaches. A thunderstorm meant we couldn’t see the sunset but it will be clear tomorrow, a bit with a pre-7pm sunset. 

Quiet day for the most part. I went to the maul to return the kayak paddle and bought one last shirt from Sears at their going out of business sale. I have enough dress shirts, including many unboxed for a while so I hopefully make it through next year without having to find alternative place for comfortable, long lasting dress shirts. Also bought some groceries and clear recycling bags which Walmart seemed to no longer stock. I like them not just for bottles and cans but also for storing and keeping stuff dry while camping. Easier than trying to guess with the white or black garbage bags. 

Made a good choice for staying in town this weekend. Both nights have been fairly stormy and we only had limited sunshine today and for a while it was quite humid. Sure I like camping but not in the rain. I do want to get up to Piseco-Powley Road again before it gets too cold to enjoy the Potholers. 

It was fine staying home, working on some new code and graphs for the blog. I imported some new moon and sunlight data into the blog so I can use it for many new things. 

Tonight will have scattered showers and thunderstorms before midnight, then a slight chance of showers. Patchy fog after 2am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a low of 63 degrees at 6am.

Tonight will have a Waning Gibbous Moon. The Last Quarter Moon is on Monday night with mostly clear skies. The Harvest Moon is on Tuesday, September 5th. The sun will rise at 6:00 am with the first light at 5:29 am, which is one minute and 4 seconds later than yesterday. Tonight will have 10 hours of darkness, an increase of 2 minutes and 29 seconds over last night.

Tomorrow will have patchy fog before 7am. Otherwise, mostly sunny, with a high of 79 degrees at 3pm. Two degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 63 at 6am. Northwest wind 8 to 11 mph. A year ago, we had partly cloudy skies. It was very sticky. The high last year was 92 degrees. The record high of 98 was set in 1947.

It looks like tomorrow is going to be a nice day. I’ll try to do something fun without going too far away like Thacher Park. Already next weekend is sliding down hill but maybe that will change. I don’t know. I’ll keep an eye on that. 

In four weeks on September 9 the sun will be setting at 7:14 pm, which is 45 minutes and 44 seconds earlier then tonight. Autumn is approaching. In 2016 on that day, we had rain, partly cloudy skies and temperatures between 87 and 69 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 75 and 54 degrees.
