lucky us

This storm is sliding North of us and the worst is over. Portsmouth too is escaping the brunt of it. We had two significant lightning cracks here on Locust Ave right over head. One sparked the crown of  a  tree across the street briefly but  the rain took care of that.

Bailey is hoarse from answering the thunder.

I am posting this photo today as a reminder that the effort continues to secure this anchor for Downtown.

Why not try another  round of public fundraising?

I’m in.

Did you all hear about film? Movie theaters and drive-ins ( nope just us, no one in the trunk) will be out of business very soon, end of this year, unless they buy digital projectors. The Screening Room in Newburyport has a campaign underway to replace the reel projector. Films now will be circulated to theaters  in a hard drive format. Oh you could still show the Stooges, but first run films would be out.A theater the size of the IOKA might require a digital projection system costing upwards of 75K.

The leasing plans for equipment  currently available might not work out for a small venue.

It would be a very good thing for Downtown to have the theater back.

9:50pm Update  I neglected to pull down the radar image earlier, good luck to all  tonight!

Mike
