I don’t know if a Hurricane comes to Upstate NY, I am not buying bottled water but extra beer. I mean, who really wants to be sober during a hurricane? I’d rather be sitting back, watching the rain come down while drinking a cold one or two.

Rain and sixty three degrees this morning as school gets underway for the rest of the youngens. The bus was running like 15 minutes, for a while I had thought I had missed the earlier bus but no, it just was the buses were delayed by school traffic and probably the wet weather to an extent. At least the rain is expected to clear out for the weekend, although certainly we aren’t in a drought after last Sunday. And who knows how wet we will get come Hurricane Irma. 

The sun will set at 7:20 pm with dusk around 7:48 pm, which is one minute and 45 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for rain and 60 degrees. The dew point will be 57 degrees. There will be a calm wind. Today will have 12 hours and 53 minutes of daytime, an decrease of 2 minutes and 49 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have showers likely, mainly before 4am. Cloudy, with a low of 54 degrees at 5am. One degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 57 at 7pm. Light northwest wind. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible. In 2016, we had partly cloudy skies. It was somewhat humid. It got down to 63 degrees. The record low of 36 occurred back in 1962.

Last night I returned a bunch of cans and bottles to Hannaford. I got like $4.05 in deposits back and emptied two thirds of one of those big trash barrels by my apartment. I guess I haven’t brought back cans back in a long time and drunk a few beers up at camp. Between returning the cans, burning the burnables at camp, I should be able to avoid going to the transfer station for a while. 

Looking ahead, there are 4 weeks until 6:30 PM Sunset when the sun will be setting at 6:30 pm with dusk at 6:58 pm. On that day in 2016, we had cloudy skies and temperatures between 69 and 53 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 65 degrees. We hit a record high of 86 back in 1891. The mercury drops quickly come autumn. I will probably head up to Moose River Plains that weekend but it depends on the weather. Fall foliage may be early this year due to the cool weather we’ve had over the past few weeks. 

Stay dry and hopefully the cool but sunny forecast for the weekend will remain true. 

Good morning! Suddenly, with playing of the Hollies’ Bus Stop Monday’s come back around again. Next Monday is Labor Day. Catching the local bus downtown. Mostly sunny and 54 degrees in Delmar. Calm wind. The dew point is 52 degrees. Feels a bit like an autumn morning, but gosh didn’t that weekend went too quickly. 

Right now, there is a lot of high clouds. Later, mostly sunny, with a high of 73 degrees at 3pm. Five degrees below normal. It seems like autumn comes too soon. Maximum dew point of 53 at 9am. Calm wind becoming southeast 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon. A year ago, we had mostly sunny skies. It was humid. The high last year was 88 degrees. The record high of 98 was set in 1948. 

The sun will set at 7:35 pm with dusk around 8:04 pm, which is one minute and 40 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for partly clear conditions and 67 degrees. The dew point will be 50 degrees. There will be a southeast breeze at 5 mph. Today will have 13 hours and 18 minutes of daytime, an increase of 2 minutes and 44 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have patchy fog after 4am. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low of 51 degrees at 5am. Seven degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 50 at 6pm. Southeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm after midnight. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It was humid. It got down to 63 degrees. The record low of 34 occurred back in 1982.

I have no idea where the weekend went so quickly. It was a cool weekend but it went by in a flash. Next weekend is Labor Day Weekend. I’m not sure what my plans are for the weekend but if it looks decent I may head up to Moose River Plains. I will decide later in the week based on the weather. 

This past weekend I was up Piseco-Powley Road. I didn’t bring my kayak and was too cold for swimming, so I went hiking. Saturday I hiked back to Spectacle Lake and Good Luck Cliffs. The later was more crowded than I would have liked. Sunday I hiked along the Edick Road Extension Trail from Piseco-Powley Road to Edick Road Campsite 1. It was a nice quiet weekend after the fast paced and crazy five days driving out to Erie, Penna for the eclipse. 

They finally are repaving NY 443 out to Clarksville whose rough condition had become the butt of jokes. It’s not perfect and being just a quick repavement it’s probably going to deteriorate quickly but it’s better than nothing. 

On this day in 1968, where the riots during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Wild times back then. Despite having a president who says a lot of controversial things and a debate about honoring our country’s history, we still live in a great time of peace and prosperity. It does suck for those people who are getting soaked from the hurricane. At least it’s Texas and with the rain the country boys will be able to have great bonfires with all of the storm debris. That’s great because a lot of Texas in recent months has been under burn bans. 

As previously noted, next Monday is Labor Day when the sun will be setting at 7:23 pm with dusk at 7:52 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 80 and 54 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 77 degrees. We hit a record high of 97 back in 1929.

China says it won’t take any more foreign garbage

"China notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) on Tuesday that it would stop accepting shipments of rubbish such as waste plastic and paper as part of a campaign against "foreign garbage"."
"The import ban, which will enter into force by the end of 2017, will also cover slag from steelmaking, and many kinds of waste wool, ash, cotton and yarn."
"We found that large amounts of dirty wastes or even hazardous wastes are mixed in the solid waste that can be used as raw materials. This polluted China's environment seriously," China's WTO filing said."
"To protect China's environmental interests and people's health, we urgently adjust the imported solid wastes list, and forbid the import of solid wastes that are highly polluted."
"China is a major importer of waste. Last year it imported 7.3 million tonnes of waste plastics, valued at $3.7 billion, accounting for 56 percent of world imports."

The Misguided Attacks on ACLU for Defending Neo-Nazis’ Free Speech Rights in Charlottesville

"Last week, the ACLU sparked controversy when it announced that it was defending the free speech rights of “alt-right” activist Milo Yiannopoulos after the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority refused to allow ads for his book to be displayed on public transit. Lost in the debate was that other groups the ACLU was defending along with Yiannopoulos were also censored under the same rule: Carafem, which helps women access birth control and medical abortion; the animal rights group PETA; and the ACLU itself."

"For representing Yiannopoulos, the civil liberties group was widely accused of defending and enabling fascism. But the ACLU wasn’t “defending Yiannopoulos” as much as it was opposing a rule that allows state censorship of any controversial political messages the state wishes to suppress: a rule that is often applied to groups which are supported by many who attacked the ACLU here."

"The same formula was applied yesterday when people learned that the ACLU of Virginia had represented the white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville after city officials tried to ban the group from gathering in Emancipation Park where a statue of Robert E. Lee was to be removed (city officials tried to move the march to an isolated location one mile away)."

"One board member of the ACLU of Virginia, Waldo Jaquith, waited until the violence erupted to announce on Twitter that he was resigning in protest of the ACLU’s representation of the protesters — as though he was unaware when he joined the board that the ACLU has been representing the free speech rights of neo-Nazis and other white supremacist groups (along with communists, Muslims, war protesters, and the full spectrum of marginalized minorities and leftists) for many decades."

Fifty years after the Plymouth Mail Robbery

"Historians don’t have all the answers about the Plymouth Mail Robbery that took place Tuesday, Aug. 14, 1962, a robbery that permanently relieved several Cape Cod banks of $1.5 million in cash. Fifty years ago, it made the news as the biggest cash heist ever – even more than the infamous Brinks Robbery of 1950."

"Six men are believed to have been involved in the Plymouth Mail Robbery, as well as several cars and machine guns. Masquerading as highway workers, the criminals waited near Exit 3, Clark Road, on Route 3 to see the mail truck appear on the horizon, bound for the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. They waited for a signal from two other thieves, scoping out the highway from the Clark Road overpass. When signaled, the bogus highway workers let the truck pass, then flew into action, erecting a barricade of pilfered sawhorses across Route 3, forcing traffic off the highway at Exit 3 onto Clark Road. Meanwhile, up ahead, on a stretch of roadway completely obscured from south-bound traffic by a screen of trees, two cars blocked the highway and a cohort dressed as a police officer waved the mail truck over. When the truck came to a halt, the “officer” and other accomplices raced to the vehicle, machine guns in hand, disarmed the postal workers and forced them to open the truck."

Sixty five degrees this morning with some high haze that is expected to burn off and the mercury is expected to climb to 81 degrees by mid afternoon with relatively low humidity. The era of pre-eight o’clock sunsets is back, three weeks out from Labor Day Weekend. The Altamont fair starts tomorrow. 

The sun will set at 7:57 pm with dusk around 8:28 pm, which is one minute and 27 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for partly cloudy conditions and 74 degrees. The dew point will be 60 degrees. There will be a south breeze at 6 mph. Today will have 13 hours and 54 minutes of daytime, an increase of 2 minutes and 31 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have a slight chance of showers after 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low of 61 degrees at 5am. One degree above normal. Maximum dew point of 60 at 7pm. South wind around 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. In 2016, we had mostly cloudy skies. It was humid. It got down to 66 degrees. The record low of 48 occurred back in 1964.

Back in 1962, two gunmen hijacked a mail truck in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and made off with $1.5 million in small denomination bills that were never recovered. The highly organized hijacking involved a fake road crew, a heavy truck to block traffic, and six theives armed with machine guns. That was a lot of money back in the day, now a days it would be hard to retire on. 

I am going to check the weather one more time for the Finger Lakes and will decide if I extend my weekend a few more days, so I can enjoy the eclipse down there. I would leave before dawn on Saturday and return late Wednesday. But my plans are still subject to change. 

As previously noted, there are 3 weeks until Labor Day when the sun will be setting at 7:23 pm with dusk at 7:52 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 80 and 54 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 77 degrees. We hit a record high of 97 back in 1929.
