Sharing is caring!

Yesterday was warmer, but a bit wet at times. Today will start with some heavy fog, be mostly sunny, with a high near 63 and southeast wind of 6 to 13 mph. Showers likely toward morning.

It seems that the area’s fall colors are still near their peak about now. Here’s a nice photo submitted by Dee Dave.  Thanks Dee.

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a FROG!  This is a real frog on the window glass the other day at the college in McHenry. While the photo gives the illusion of size and height (and its ability to leap tall buildings…) s/he is just a regular-size amphibian. To my knowledge, there are no giant mutant frogs invading the lake.  But, you never know… Be on the look-out!

Coming back down to earth: The Appalachian Laboratory is hosting a Lab After Hours- a Guided Tour as part of the Watershed Moments Community Learning Series on November 7th, They will be hosting guided tours of the Laboratory from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm that evening. During the tour, participants will be able to visit laboratories and learn about the research conducted there from the scientists and students who work in those facilities. Attendees under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The event is free, but registration is required. Register at or by calling 301.689.7102.

There’s a Young Artists Workshop this evening at the Ruth Enlow Library in Oakland. This looks like it is both informative and fun. Find out more here.  While society increasingly puts emphasis on STEM education, and for a lot of good reasons, I believe in STEAM education, adding arts makes for a well-rounded individual. Just a little editorial.

Finally, Sarah and I have been very busy preparing for our 2019 Deep Creek Times People’s Choice Challenge celebration party (and related program guide, etc.).  The celebration will be held on Wednesday, October 30th from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm in the GIEC on the Garrett College campus in McHenry.  We will announce all of the winners at that event, so if you were nominated, you definitely want to attend. Please help us spread the word.

Have a great Monday!
