    Winter weather forecast

    I have not seen that particular doc but I have seen almost all of this guy's videos, documenting life as a logistics team member at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station and at McMurdo. He has overwintered on the South Pole base several times, when there is 24 hour darkness, gale force winds...

    Winter weather forecast

    Surprised no chat about it here; going to get some very cold temps this evening. Similar to that Arctic blast around Christmas Eve. Air temp around 8, wind chill -8.

    Finding an Old Book

    I just read through some old threads from about that time on here, that's very nice. It's a shame that some of the older front-page articles are no longer accessible and a lot of old images are gone. I would have loved to have met Henry Beck's daughter. That George Vail obituary is pretty...

    Finding an Old Book

    This is still not Sign Posts, but I have also now added the complete Martha Furnace diary to the collection, with Bisbee's signature. This was a rare find.

    I'll Never Tire Of This Spot

    Gorgeous shots, thank you for sharing. I remember that storm well. It lifted heavy metal furniture off the deck and smashed it into the sliding glass doors. We were without power for a few days as well. I still have a picture of the power outage map. Here's a gigantic old tree it uprooted in...

    DEP ANNOUNCES VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING TO LAUNCH WHARTON STATE FOREST VISITOR AND VEHICLE USE SURVEY

    From what I've seen, seems like you just plant a pole, and hey, you're fishing.

    Looking For A Vehicle And Exploring In Lebanon

    You could use some tough leather gloves or something when walking through thick brush. The briars will really cut you up good.

    Sonic Booms

    https://www.nj.com/news/2023/01/mystery-shaking-rumbling-felt-along-jersey-shore-again-no-earthquakes-reported.html Did you hear/feel it? There were a couple of deep booms a few seconds apart here around 11AM yesterday. It shook the house a little bit. This is pretty far inland.

    Jackson State Forest

    Weirdly, it's Mississippi-shaped. And the capital of Mississippi is...Jackson. Odd coincidence.

    Military Fox Hole

    That's just the path that the little green men took after emerging from their craft ;)

    Military Fox Hole

    Looking at some great past threads on geology on here, but a lot of old images are missing. It'd be great if Spung-Man weighed in on this one. I've seen ironstone/sandstone plenty of times but the silvery gray color is unusual.

    High Spots Today

    So what's your impression of what this was? Indeed part of a very old bog? The channels are interesting.

    Blind Boat And A Blind

    The first image in this thread reminded me how awesome Bird's Eye View (45 degree oblique low-altitude aerial photography) was in Live/Bing Maps, more than a decade ago. It looks like the feature is still in the product, but the coverage has been dramatically reduced. Is there anywhere in or...

    DEP ANNOUNCES VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING TO LAUNCH WHARTON STATE FOREST VISITOR AND VEHICLE USE SURVEY

    I will certainly support demarcating and/or barricading ponds, spungs, fields, wetlands...anything that is plainly not part of any road. Those areas are no place for vehicles. Step up enforcement and bring heavy penalties on those who continue to ignore such barricades.

    Military Fox Hole

    What's that mean, exactly - they're natural features?

    Military Fox Hole

    Wondering about these as well, a little bit to the east.

    The rectangular thing

    Maybe they floated the lumber down the creek and built it onsite? You're right though, it's really remote for seemingly no reason.
