Civil twilight

Q: What is civil twilight, and why should I care?

A: You’ve probably always known about civil twilight; it’s just that you didn’t know that it had an “official” name. As a boater or outdoors person, you’ve always known that there’s a time before the sun comes up and after it goes down that you can see well enough to do things outside.



Stinging Nettles

Q: What can you do about stinging nettles?

A: Go to Maine, or upper Chesapeake Bay where the water is fresh, such as in the Sassafras River. Or go anywhere else where they aren’t. But that’s easy to say. What if you can’t go to any of those places?
