Just some leaves

I wish I knew what kind of tree this was. I don’t. I think it’s something ornamental, something you’d find in a garden. Thoughts?

Boat on a bridge

Boat on a bridge, a month after Sandy

This was taken on November 25, 2012, a month after Hurricane Sandy swept away east coast.

The boat is lying on a bridge in the Sea Bright-Rumson area… maybe the Shrewsbury River? I wasn’t the navigator, so I’m not entirely sure where this was.
Ed.: The navigator speaks!— this is the Navesink River, as seen from Middletown, NJ.

This represents the level of destruction in that area, I think… as long as the road was passable, a boat on a bridge didn’t fricking matter.

Sand, sea, and sunset

Eh. Just a beach.

Things change

New Providence, Grove Terrace abandoned greenhouse

Last February, on a Weird NJ message board, I saw a tip for some old abandoned greenhouse in New Providence. I don’t know if this is what they meant, but I eventually tracked down this abandoned structure on Grove Terrace and snapped a photo.

This February… well, they’ve been busy over the past year. This green house is built where the old shed used to be.

New Providence, Grove Terrace new construction

As you can see, it’s no longer an empty or abandoned lot. I dunno if anyone’s living in that green house yet, but it’s certainly more livable than it used to be (heh).

The grown-up in me says, “good! At least the land will be used properly now,” but the rebellious adolescent in me says “awwwww, I never got inside!”

Horseshoe Cove (back in the day)

Horseshoe Cove

This is an old photo— from 2007— and the fact that it’s only 56kb scares me a little— but I think it looks okay…? No major artifacting?


It’s Horseshoe Cove, on Sandy Hook (New Jersey)— which is all but inaccessible at the moment, and probably doesn’t look quite like this anymore. But it’s still a nice scene to think about.

Near Kearny Connection, 7:39AM

I don't even know what these things are called.

I don’t even know what those electrical thingies are called.

I didn’t like this photo so much when I initially took it, but it’s been growing on me.

Oh, and by the way: here’s the Wikipedia article about the Kearny Connection.

(“Rainbow Connection” has been going through my head while I’ve been pawing around the interwebs for info on the Kearny Connection. Arrrrgh.)

Braced for snow

Lady sitting in the snow, la de da

So apparently there’s some giant blizzard headed towards the northeast. (Weather Channel is calling it “Nemo.”)

New England is supposed to get the brunt of it, from what I can tell, but the New York/ north Jersey area is supposed to get 6-12 inches, and everyone is panicking. (Last night, after 9PM, I waited in line to get gas for about 15 minutes. [No gas crisis, but normally at that time of night, I’d roll right up to a pump, wham bam thank you ma’am.])

Being a seasoned northeasterner who lived through Sandy and doesn’t drive much, I’ve been sort of rolling my eyes about all the hubbub. Pshaw, we’re tough, we can handle a foot of snow!

…..but I should probably make sure all my electronics are charged anyway. Just in case.

I’ll keep you guys updated if anything interesting happens. (and assuming I have power!)


(By the way, this lady is the cousin of this kid, who lives behind the Library of the Chathams, and she was photographed over two years ago, so no, Nemo hasn’t saddled us with that much snow YET.)

Navesink River, 6:39AM

Navesink River, NJ

I dunno, clouds are pretty sometimes.
