Re: Two New Stars in New Brunswick, Canada (aka delmarva north)
- Now Don its not that bad......
Actully where iam at its quite nice. New Brunsiwck is a little
bigger then VA in land area but has only about 900,000 fora
population, hence much rural woodlot and wilderness. Hence the dark
Weather.....in June we only get abour 3 hours of of astronomical
darkness. In August when we have our star parties we its dark enough
to observe from 10pm till 4am. Daytime summer highs in NB are
usually in the upper 80's and mid 90's fora coupel weeks withteh
rest of summer being in the 80's. Quite comfy with nights going down
to the 50s and 60s. Mind you I have seen frost in June and near the
end of August. But OH THOSE SKIES are AMAZING!
PS. The twins are doing well. At 3 days Connor is feeding liek a
milk monster. Sister Miranda is a littel slow on the feeding yet but
coming around. OTherwise all are doing well.
Yes this makes # 3 and 4 for our children. By that way, a awarning
too all. Susan had her tubes tied after we had #2 Nathan 3 years ago!
Spayed and Nuter!!!! Need i say more.
