Good 53º cloudy morning.
Those thunder storms predicted for today and tomorrow.
If this was August 9th in 2010 the date would show as 8-9-10! :o)
Yesterday the gloom.. and it looked like it was raining on my mountain...
The temps stayed in the 60ºs until 11:45 when we hit 70º!
It felt so good outside in the morning... a breeze and 63º! Ahhhhh.... I was wearing a sweatshirt and so comfy. Then the wind started up and the clouds went away...
We topped at 86º.
Picture of the Day.... LOL.... saw this while shopping in Bar Harbor Maine. (BTW, locals pronounce the town "Baaa Habba"!)
Marie Curie conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. Her efforts, along with her husband Pierre Curie, led to the discovery of the radioactive elements polonium and radium, while working with the mineral pitchblende. After years of extensive research handling highly radioactive materials with no safeguards, Curie succumbed to aplastic anemia—a disorder of brought on by her exposure to radiation—at the age of 66. The artifacts found within her laboratory, including her numerous research notebooks, are still so radioactive as to require special storage and protective equipment to handle.
