Portsmouth, NH -
The blue skies suddenly darkened into a thick, hard gray and the humidity of the warm summer day bubbled up in great steamy wafts from the streets and sidewalks as the sidewalk revelers rushed to clear their plates, pick up their newspapers and grab cover. Within minutes the sky opened up with watery vengeance for what must have been some terrible, terrible wrong done to it. Such was the case just before 4PM here in Portsmouth, causing me to wait out the storm from Breaking New Ground. If there is a coffeehouse in all of New Hampshire that I have to wait out a storm in, it may as well be this one. I initially resisted it's move across Congress Street into a bigger space a few years back, but I have grown to appreciate the new digs.
Anyway, it looks like I won't be able to hit the Seacoast double of Biden at 5 and Mike Huckabee's live performance with Capitol Offense at 6 in Dover. The photo in the link, by the way, shows pre-diet Huckabee. Fat Huckabee. Back with more in a few hours.
