Rotten to the core:
Our street wasn’t totally untouched :)!

I’ve just completed putting up a basic weather station at our new home. This time it’s a wireless system from Ambient (WS2080). There’s great free software, Cumulus, that I’m using to post the local detailed weather (http://weather.theweissguy.com). No wind data since it’s impossible to site it well without getting up on my too steep and many gabled roof. The Brewster station is now history as is our life there. So much going on here.

As a native Brooklynite this Boston Globe picture and caption caught my attention:
Which neighborhood? Hmm, I thought – I’ll check the NY Times for the full story. Nothing. Hmm, I thought, I’ll search on Google – nothing. Hmm, I thought – I’ll ask my sister-in-law who lives in Brooklyn – she neither knew nor had heard anything about it. Did this really happen? Can anyone explain?

Well, it was great while it lasted. My backyard short but fun bike trail has now been closed & posted “No Trespassing” by the owner. I was under the impression that it was on town property but apparently such is not the case. Alice tried to convince Mr. Bassett, the owner (by phone) to allow us walking and biking access to this .3 mile path.
No way – all he kept repeating despite various entreaties was “Why didn’t you know this is private property?”. He owns major tracts of land near us but lives in town near his ice delivery business. He’s a longtime multi-generational Cape Codder and and I guess we’re just some new wash a’shore’s. It was a good training run but I’ve found great riding in the nearby Punkhorn which is Brewster conservation land – horse trails make great single track biking.
