Cellar hole down the street has acquired backfill and loam, with hay mulch to control erosion and keep the pigeons out of the birdseed.

Great blue heron preening on the grass near the cemetery pond. I deduce it had already speared breakfast. Same bird (?) in the water weeds hunting when I came back, plus a possible second in the far part of the pond.

One squashed and leaky raccoon about four miles into my ride, looked like a second-year critter. That's near a cafe, and I suspect the lure of a ripe dumpster was involved.

Not totally lethal out there, yet (82 F now), so I got out on the bike. Did not die.

Air temperature 72 F, west wind about 7 mph, clear/hazy. Need to get out on the bike before it gets worse.

First Canada thistle blooms (which tells you something about how New England views Canada), cotoneaster and evening primrose flowering in town, milkweed starting to form pods.

No roadkill, not even a flattened squirrel.

Roads got sorta-dry, still cloudy, got out on the bike. Thick air. Did not die.

Crunching the house down the street leaves two in the same area with orange "unfit for occupancy" placards from the city . . . .

Now they'll probably just delete any funding from the budget.

House down the street crunches under the insatiable maw of a crawler backhoe.

House down the street now has a large construction Dumpster in the driveway.  That usually implies partial rather than complete demolition.

Gray morning, air temperature 64 F and dew point the same, wind south about 5 mph. Touches of mist on the newspaper walk. Weather radar suggests that I won't get a bike ride in this morning.

Haven't been able to decide whether a house down the street is being demolished or rehabbed. I could ask, but that spoils the fun.

Air temperature 61 F, dew point 60, light south wind and scattered clouds for the newspaper walk. Minimalism endures.

I hear that something is bothering some privileged assholes who have cable TV.
