David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.



After the Storm.

The power came back on at about 3:30 AM, which was good since the house was getting cold. I had moved out to the RV since it has a propane heater. Unfortunately, the power went out again at 10 AM. Once it was light out, I went out to survey the damage. Several more trees down, including my favorite Japanese Maple in the front yard. The remaining Birch trees were bent almost to the ground. Images to follow. The night before Halloween is known as “Mischief Night” in this region. Hope folks are not running around tonight with downed power lines. Right now PSE&G is saying power should be restored by midnight Halloween, or for some of the worst hit parts of the state on Wednesday. If it is going to be much longer, I will need to drain the water in the pipes before they freeze.

    Ours it projected to be out until Wednesday . The water heater, gas cooktop and fireplace are helping. And lots of blankets. They just cleared the power lines and trees off our street. I had to drive over them yesterday. Took me 4 alternate route tried to get to my house after I took the bus home from the city yesterday . Finally made it through on a (scary) closed road.

      Glad you got home OK. My power appears to have been restored at 1 PM today. We will see how long it lasts this time. Just cleaning up. Everything in the Fridge goes (it doesn’t smell good, even though I moved all my ice bottles into it to keep it cold). Nothing for the trick & treaters tonight. DJM
