    Stay Away from Logan Airspace ...

    Mother Swan now looking after her children alone!

    Unless you're in one of the airplanes.

    Massport often finds it necessary to kill birds that could fly into jet engines and cause malfunctions. Usually the casualties are starlings or seagulls. But on September 13, 2002, Massachusetts Port Authority officials that were trying to keep airspace clear for planes, shot a male swan.
    .
    The bird had lived in the waters near Winthrop for two years. For the second year in a row it was raising four cygnets with its mate. Many are upset about the incident and believe it wasn't necessary to do more than scare the swan away. In any case, it is sad that it had to happen at all.

    If you're on the beach or out on a boat and an electrical storm comes in, get out of the water and head for cover (not under a tree silly) as soon as you can.
    Can happen very quickly too!

    I'm standing on my porch when I took this picture.
    It's on the blurry side but I had to get it pretty quickly.
    Yup, that's a rainbow next to the lighting strike!
