The Day After

My hometown pulled off the huge event yesterday brilliantly and without incident.  All eyes were on Kingston and we done good!   Not everyone went downtown.   Many people had Hip parties.  I talked to a woman today who projected the concert on her garage wall and they all sat outside and had a barbeque and could sit in the comfort of their own lawn chairs instead of being packed like sardines in the square.

Here are a couple of photos that were on Facebook last night.

Aug. 20 Hip concert

I saw several drones flying around.   This was one of those.

The Hip-Standard.

This was the cover of the Whig Standard yesterday.  Nice one.

It rained today!   These are from the windows of Rideaucrest.  The rain came down in sheets, lashed by a howling wind.  I was supposed to work the market today, so I wish it could have waited until Monday, but at least it didn’t rain on the crowds last night.   By about 2, it stopped and the sun eventually showed up again.

Now for a few shots from last night, on my way to the square.

I’ve shown pictures of this house before, but they cleared off ALL the amazing vines that covered the place in a verdant riot in the summer.

I’ve shown this house before as well.   I’m not sure if those window trellises are new, but it looks great.
