I'll direct you all to http://spaghettimodels.com/ for all the weather charts you could possibly want. There are links at the top left corner of the page that will take you to the various models, and some will allow you to run your own simulations.

Hoping for the best, prepping for the worst.

Possibly the space station? I think it was visible about the same time last night. I didn't look for it (though I often do when it's visible in our area) but from what I remember of the sighting opportunities from last night it was visible for about two minutes looking south around 7pm.

The NASA app is great for ISS sightings. Tonight you can see it at 6:48pm for 2 minutes, starting at 21 degrees above SW going to 11 degrees above south. Then again at 7:29pm for 1 minutes, from 11 degrees above SW to 10 degrees above SSW. It looks like a very bright star moving at a steady pace. (It may be too cloudy tonight.)

Most ISS sightings recently have been very early in the morning. The past few days have given us some evening opportunities, through this Friday.

Happy stargazing!

Weather permitting of course. Around 6:45pm tonight. You can get the info from Gothamist below, but it looks like JC will have a pretty good viewing angle based on what I'm seeing:

This illegal parking in front of restaurants occurs in Paulus Hook at Liberty Prime on the corner of Montgomery and Warren as well. There is a bus stop out front, clearly marked with no parking signs and a yellow curb. There are usually cars parked there and they also use it as a valet parking stand. The buses simply stop in the middle of Montgomery and let passengers off 10 feet away from the curb. I complained (online service center request) and was told that the curb would be painted over. Yet it's still a bus stop.

"work order #111213a was issued black out the yellow curb"

You should park in the bus stop on the southwest corner of Montgomery and Warren sometime. The owners of that steakhouse there have figured out that no one tickets and they park there all the time. They even block off the entire bus stop in the late afternoons/evenings with cones and turn it into their valet parking area.

The bus stop is active. There are "no parking" signs. The curb is painted yellow. Go figure.

I dragged this thread out again two weeks ago because we stopped by for brunch. And I'll say it again, the brunch is absolutely worth a trip as it's delicious and priced right. I say that because I want them to continue serving brunch because I want to continue going there. So I admit it's purely for my own selfish reason I'm trying to promote them.

We've only eaten there one other time and that was when they first opened. While we thought the food was top quality we thought it was a little overpriced. Brunch is not! And it's delicious!

Did I mention how good the food is?

Crisp has actually opened a location in the food court at the mall in Newport. By far the best hummus in JC. It's not apparent when you walk up but they do sell the hummus by itself. And five packs of just the falafel. But all their food is YUM.

Seriously. The BEST hummus. Hope you enjoy!

This place is now serving brunch. We were walking by on the way to another place to eat and saw the sign. A great decision! The food was excellent, not overpriced, service was friendly and efficient. I didn't partake but they had a bloody mary table where you customize yours to your liking. There was all you can drink bloody marys and mimosas for 15 bucks. The brunch menu isn't small but it's not sprawling either. Omelets cooked perfectly not burned. The biscuits and gravy, while certainly not a traditional southern preparation, was outstanding. Hope you enjoy it if you check it out.

Taqueria Viva Mexico 133 Morris Street Jersey City, NJ 07302 201-433-3477
View Larger Map New place in Paulus Hook on Morris Street between Warren and Van Vorst. Near Amelia's Bistro. They opened last Saturday and I've eaten there twice already. Fantastic food. Super friendly. The decor is everything other restaurants will probably hate. They have (delicious!) guacamole. The food is all homemade. It's owned and run by people that are actually from Mexico. They are open all day long--early for egg sandwiches etc. for breakfast through late night dinner. Seating for about 30, plus takeout and free delivery. (201) 433-3477 They have a VERY full menu. I assume it is connected to the former Kitchen Cafe that was on the corner of Sussex and Greene where delicious Rumi Turkish Grill is now because they also have burgers and other dishes as well as a catering menu in addition to the amazing Mexican fare. I'm certainly looking forward to supporting them for many years

I was coming through the Grove Street area when this was happening. I was trying to figure out who it was so I could be sure to not vote for them. Who knew it was an election in another country! Stange.

It seemed pretty obnoxious. They were blocking traffic and hanging out of car windows so it seemed a bit dangerous too. And I definitely saw JCPD drive by, look over, and keep driving.

Re: ELECTION DAY SHENANIGANS

YESTERDAY the polling place locator told me I was to vote at Metropolis Towers, as did my sample ballot, which is different than my old polling place but still in the same neighborhood. However, when I looked at the polling place locator TODAY it told me to go to my old polling place. Confused, I went to the new one on my sample ballot. Not realizing there are polling places in BOTH of those towers I went to the wrong one and was promptly turned away by an unhelpful challenger who didn't want to hear the word ' provisional' (my name was not in the book.) I then went to my old polling place and the helpful ladies said I should go to the OTHER tower, as that was where one of the ladies working at my old place had to go to vote. I went to the other tower and voted without incident as my name was on the book.

To summarize, the sample ballot tells me to vote at the new place, and I am on the books at my new place, but the online locator today says to go to my old place but yesterday told me to go to my new place.

Yes, someone is either stupid or corrupt, but probably both. (And if you can't follow my post please accept my apologies.)

But, I did vote!

Unless you install a barrier 3? deep completely around your planting of bamboo, you?ll encounter one of the most invasive plants ever.

It took us 1 year to remove two small clumps in Van Vorst Park that were planted inappropriately. Some of the original plant?s rhizomes were 30? from its base. You cut the main plant and any part of that 30? rhizome is capable of producing a new shoot, and their shoots do likewise.

It will survive our winters so plant at your own risk.

Parkman

Ps. there are some varieties that are not as aggressive but are rare.


For a great example of how destructive and invasive bamboo is, go take a look at the empty lot on the northeast corner of Sussex and Van Vorst in Paulus Hook. Not something you want in your yard unless it's done professionally.

On that note, there is a place in Morristown:

Bamboo Bob

For non-invasive bamboo you'd want the 'clumping' variety. However it's not going to be good for a screen as it looks basically like a bush of bamboo and only 4 feet tall. But it looks great as a regular plant in your garden and you won't have to worry about runners.

Back on the original topic, 14th Street always has good plants but can be pricey because of the location. Holland Tunnel Home Depot is fairly useless, unfortunately. However the Home Depot mentioned west of here off of 78 has a great selection and the best prices I've seen anywhere nearby. Plus their plants are guaranteed. It's about a 20 minute drive from here. 2445 Springfield Ave. in Union, NJ.

Another option fairly close is in Belleville, NJ. Alpine Nursery at 291 Main Street. Lots of variety, friendly staff, prices are good too.

Keep an eye on the weather though. Our 'last frost' date is around April 20. Looks like we have a chance to dip below freezing tomorrow and have some frost.

Enjoy the outdoors!

I personally like Sabra more than anything homemade, EXCEPT for Crisp. But if I want some homemade and don't feel like doing it myself I go to Rumi. It just depends on my mood and craving. I'll usually get a meal at Rumi, not just the hummus. But I'll always grab some Sabra when I go to the grocery. +1 on the roasted garlic!

I have not tried Gypsy Grill though I keep saying I'm going to.

Between Ibby's and Rumi Turkish Grill, I think Ibby's falafel is better but Rumi's hummus is the winner in that matchup.

(Two Aprons is pretty good too but I stopped going there after one-too-many times of not being able to buy a chicken because he was saving them for more regular customers.)

My favorite hummus and falafel though come from Crisp in the city. I hit that place up for lunch a couple times a week.

Could it be that they have simply not updated their message? I can't get anyone on the phone at the office on Central. I need visitor permits if it is NOT suspended today. But it seems they are closed. So that would mean that the rules are suspended, right? I mean the post offices are closed so I couldn't go next door to get the money order to pay for the things. And last year city hall and parking offices were closed and rules were suspended.

Ah ha! Jersey City Independent says the rules ARE suspended.

No, they don't. The back says "Subject to applicable rules, regulations and tariffs. This ticket cannot be resold. Do not copy." Applicable rules, however, may say that it is not transferable. Though I certainly can't find those rules on the NJ Transit site. (Shocking, I know.)

There are code numbers on the front of the ticket that say what date it was purchased (and probably where and when) and the stamp itself tells you at which station it was validated.
