I feel — and also know — that I am privileged. I get to spend hours surrounded by this. Wonderful when I am walking.

But, please remember, I pay the price. This is just compensation for 5-months of cold, snow, ice and winds! So, it is like the last hurrah prior to the misery of winter. SMILE. And this year, after my knee injury in February, I won’t even be able to shovel snow. That really was my only joy in winter. Shoveling snow. It is so satisfying.

I will try and make this a daily event. Sharing the local foliage with you. Not difficult — really. I can just step outside and snap a few pictures. 50% of these were within 100 yards of my front door!

New Hampshire 2019 Fall Foliage Is Way, Way Ahead Of Schedule.

In the last few days the colors have exploded, the brilliant reds, the vivid yellows and the appealing oranges. This is early. Maybe 2-weeks, possibly even 3. We are not in October yet, and these are the colors you would expect in mid-October.

Yes, I am lucky, very lucky. I live in the sticks and I am able to mindlessly amble across the wooded, rural landscape, on dirt roads, for at least 90-minutes a day. So, I get to see, observe and note the colors and the beauty around me. I do not take it for granted. I take time to smell the roses — though the wild roses are nearly all gone.

I would contend that 2019 New Hampshire foliage is in full-swing. I will have to take more pictures, so I can share with you.

Enjoy.

MetroCast Maintains 105 Mbps In Alton (N.H.) During Saturday Night.

by Anura Guruge


With any cable-based Internet access system the crucial question is whether they can maintain the promised bandwidth during peak usage on the cable — Saturday nights invariably considered the busiest time on cable.

Last year, when I first got 75 Mpbs from Metrocast, I was anxious to see how MetroCast would come the first Saturday night. They passed with flying colors.

Ditto this year with 105 Mbps. Typically, as is Metrocast wont, I would get 107 Mbps. But 105 Mbps at 11:30pm on a Saturday night is not bad at all since I am also sharing the bandwidth, as I write, with Deanna and Devanee both using the Internet. So MC is probably still delivering close to 107 Mbps. This is good. Very impressed with MetroCast. They have come a long way.
