by Doug Robinson Everybody has been affected by the recent heat wave. While the heat registers on our thermometers at temperatures above 90 degrees, we have been seeking cooler shelters, such as sitting in front of our fans, shopping in air-conditioned buildings, or swimming in local ponds, rivers, or pools. Children have been seen running through lawn sprinklers, and pool parties have cropped up in many neighborhoods as people attempt to “beat the heat.” The heat also affects animals alike and they seek out alternatives to cool themselves down, as they do not have the benefit of pool parties, running through sprinklers, or visiting local businesses in an attempt to “beat the heat.” Recently, a gaggle of geese was seen crossing the oppressive hot asphalt road in front of the Nashua Telegraph, which is located on Executive Drive in

Hudson. As the gaggle of geese crossed the road, traffic was forced to stop. Parents and children looked, wide-eyed, at the crossing geese within their stopped vehicles. One by one, the gaggle of geese traveled, step by step, in perfect procession as they crossed the road. The goal of the geese was very simple: all they had to do was to reach the opposite side of the road, travel up the embankment, and continue on to the pond located directly across the street from the Nashua Telegraph. The walk would be a very short walk for those who stand upright. But for the geese, walking only two inches between each step, their trip to the pond must have seemed endless. As the older, much taller geese led the younger and much smaller geese, they, too, sought a cooler area to spend their day. And the scene was simple: Parents teaching their children to endure. As the teaching life cycle continued, the younger geese were being taught that to become cooler
involved risking the crossing of the busy street so that they could benefit from the cooling effects of the large pond. The day was not so hot that birds could
not be heard chirping, nor could the sounds of frogs be heard croaking. Lawns were browning and those working outside could be seen holding bottles of water in their hands. Automobiles lined the sides of roadways with overheated engines, and the old analogy of “you could fry an egg on the pavement” comes to mind. Yet, the gaggle of geese knew what to do.
Boldly, they lined up, tallest to smallest, and marched directly across the extremely hot road. Heads held high, feet flattering forward, and focused to purpose, the gaggle of geese interrupted traffic, formed a processional line, and crossed the street. Having successfully crossed Executive
Drive, they waddled the embankment one by one, traveling up and over the ridge, continuing another 75 years to reach their goal: the pond. The geese entered the water and then began to immediately spray themselves with water that had accumulated on their wings. They seemed to know that the local pond could cool them off. Seeing the geese crossing the very hot
pavement brings to mind that animals, too, are very much affected by the heat.
Flowers for Hudson
Hudson highway workers Bibba Daigle (kneeling) and Scott Klement

Kevin Burns the the road agent mentioned that the new planting was a suggestion from the workers and he “knows that the guys will made this happen for the town”
Run for Zach
by Doug Robinson Registrations are still being accepted for the Zach Attack 5K Fun Run/Walk, which will be held on August 27. Beginning at Alvirne High School, the run will kick off at 6:30 p.m. Over 25 volunteers have already donated their time to assist in the event. Water stations will be set up along the running route, which will start at Alvirne High School, and then proceed on Derry Road, Old Derry Road, Melba Drive, Gabrielle Drive, Greeley Street, Sousa Boulevard, Pinehurst Street, Marsh Road, Evergreen Drive, and circle back to Alvirne High School. All proceeds generated from the 5K (3.1-mile) race will be used to support the ongoing efforts of the Zachary M. Tompkins Memorial Fund.
