Massachusetts electricity customers could be facing a steep increase in their winter bills, National Grid warned on Wednesday.

Citing the high price of natural gas used in generating the power, the utility company said winter electricity rates taking effect on Nov. 1, will be sharply higher than they were last winter.

“In total, the monthly bill of a typical residential electric customer using 600 kWh (kilowatt-hours) will increase from $179 in the winter 2021-2022 season, to approximately $293 for the winter 2022-2023 season,” National Grid said.

That’s a 64% increase year-over-year.

Cable Ship, and Merganser Mania — pat morss

Exactly two weeks after Atlantic Merlin came by Eastern Point, clearing the path for the new fiber optic cable from Lynn, MA to the UK and France, Decisive worked worked her way through early this morning (Thurs) laying the cable. Meawhile on Niles Pond, after the ice melted, the Mergansers were out in force with Valentine’s Day thoughts. [And a twist at the end.]

Decisive progressing slowly at early dawn, closest to land.
At sunrise, the business end of the ship, towing the trench plow and uncoiling the cable.
Over on Niles Pond, a male Red-breasted Merganser enjoyed the calm water
Lack of ice improved fishing for these female Hooded Mergansers.
A budding romance? He has his hair slicked down.
Trouble brewing! Pretty young woman; his girlfriend in the background.
“If you keep staring at her, I’m outta here.”
A loud argument ensued. Young woman playing it cool.
“And don’t come back!”
I’ll swim alongside and see how she responds to me.
“I know I said she was gone. Ignore her.”
“This romance will go nowhere.” [Our ornithologist daughter says the young woman is a male.]

Is it live or…Hopper? Edward Hopper’s New York at the Whitney Museum is stunning

If you want to be thunderstruck by how much New York inspired Edward Hopper and how much Hopper influenced everything else, look no further than Renzo Piano’s spectacular design of the Whitney Museum flagship which opened on 99 Gansevoort in 2015. The building serves the art no matter the exhibit. Yet, I have not felt such an overwhelming Hopper vibe until this show.

This piece is part one of a review with installation images and photo journal inspired by visits to Edward Hopper’s New York at the Whitney Museum (October 19, 2022-March 5, 2023).
