On this day in history: October 30, 1938 - CBS radio announces that glistening, black-eyed Martians have landed at Grover's Mill, New Jersey. Luckily for the extraterrestrials, the news is announced during a Mercury Theatre program and later discounted as a work of fiction. Needless to say, the event causes widespread panic before the government manages to clamp a lid on it.

Born on this day in history: October 30, 1797 - John Adams - Born in Braintree (now Quincy), Massachusetts, second president (1797–1801) John Adams was a Massachusetts delegate to the First (1774) and Second (1775–7) Continental Congresses. He helped edit Jefferson's Declaration of Independence. As president, Adams antagonized supporters and was defeated for re-election by Jefferson (1800).

Harvest Festival Tomorrow evening, Harvest Christian Center will host the annual Harvest Festival. The weather reports indicate the possibility of rain. The event is scheduled to take place regardless of the weather. Rain would, however, considerably reduce my enthusiasm with regard to photographing the event. While my Nikon D3 is "highly weatherproof," I have no desire whatever to personally determine to what extent this feature addresses rain! Yikes! I shall, therefore, pray that it does not rain until the following day.
