The Sky Before A Video

The sun is setting, has set. The sky and the weather diagnosis promise some needed rain is headed our way, then possibly more snow by the weekend.

A silly video is slowly loading, I think, on this stinking Hughes satellite internet. Didn't Obama promise us high speed wireless internet beamed all over the country with the intent mostly to serve the under served rural areas? I sure hope he did.

Until then, enjoy the view.

Beautiful photos. I take it is not living up to the ad claims? I'm in a rural area, too, and I have a need for speed.

Hi Christopher! Beautiful views as always. I never tire of your beautiful photos.

I'm not sure what the cost of Hughes satellite service is, but have you compared that price with the price of getting an air card from Verizon? That is what we use up there and it is fast and reliable.

Stay warm.

What I love about the sky is that everyday it is a new painting.

When it is time for me to hook up the cozy cabin I will check into what other internet services may be avaiable then. I have a Verizon cell phone that works up here on occasion if I stand out on the deck in a certain spot and warn people the call is likely to be dropped. One bar mostly.

Siria I think you are just closer to the city and to the signals. Sandy Mush Bald blocks us I think. No cable lines, no high speed on the phone line yet? That leaves Dish maybe, they were working on it, and Hughes.

Lovely pictures as usual Christopher. It's a bummer when you can't get signals. Hopefully you will get it worked out.

I watched a storm front pass overhead from my window at work last week. All day it was dark gray and wet out, then suddenly just an hour before dusk, there was light over the ocean. The lighted area expanded and grew and there was a crisp line separating the light from the gray. The gray part continued continued east very quickly, and then it was totally gone, leaving only dusky light. It was like watching a video. The whole thing happened so fast.

Such beautiful views. I think I would never be able to do anything else but look with views like that.
