Goodwater was clear last weekend, that general area you just mentioned was decent for travel, even up through mountThe weather was decent during the day (while i was working, naturally) but the downpours began shortly after I got home. Planning on doing a little exploring in the area of Batsto tower- washington tpk- penn swamp rd tomorrow. Hopefully the roads and trails aren't too squishy. Last time i tried to drive down goodwater road in that area, it was totally impassable due to downed trees, but that was over a month ago. Will report back on conditions if there's anything worth a mention.
I ran into one of these for the first time a couple weeks ago - right on the edge of my yard. All coiled up and it made a loud noise, but didn't really sound like the rattler I encountered many years ago. It looks like the noise is made by a "whipping" action. It was very aggressive... or at least stubborn. Would not run away when prodded by a stick. Glad that this has been discussed here or it might have fooled me... but I knew better.This was not happy at all we were there. It rattled it's tail just like a rattlesnake which did not scare us at all. We knew better.
Yep, we were going to head down to Millville for the races. Sunny & clear here right now. Having another cup of coffee instead. The new genset enclosure is getting some good water infiltration testing with these rain events.Wow, they have really ratcheted up the rain forecast for today and tonight!
