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.

Some Progress on Power Grid Repairs, but a Nor’easter is Comming.

It is hard to believe that it was just a year ago that we had an early winter Nor’easter for halloween. This year we get another early winter storm before all of the repairs post Hurricane Sandy are completed. The following images show that progress is being made. The last image shows that the light rain was converting to snow. My furnace and hot water heater were repaired, and I got a delivery of oil before the storm hit. Power went out again during the night. I was not sure if this was due to the power company switching over circuits to the newly repaired lines, or due to snow covered branches taking down new lines.
