Skating on Carnegie Lake

Here's the website where the township provides up to date info on skating conditions at three locations in Princeton: http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=princetonrecreation. You may have to scroll down a ways.

For a "review" of the lake's two days of glorious skating, see www.princetonnaturenotes.blogspot.com.

Adopt a Sidewalk

One of the disadvantages of being tall is that you serve as a walking early warning system for tree limbs growing out over sidewalks. By default, you may find yourself taking on the role of "first responder", arriving on the scene with a pair of loppers to clear the pedestrian lane of pesky impediments. In this particular case, I must have ducked under this limb a hundred times before heeding the call to public service.

Have to say, though, that it makes for a great before and after shot. All our actions should lead to such clear improvements.
