New Jersey My Love

Due to the derecho last week, it took 30 hours to get to Newark, but it was worth it to see my family and to finally check out this place:

We also went to the Thomas Edison National Historic Park (aka: Where America Was Invented) in West Orange.

This is a where he took naps and pre-invented stuff like the movie camera and portable batteries:


And here are some snaps of his factory and office:

Bonus: On the way out to Newark we flew over a sweet sunset and then a lightening storm that lasted forever.  If you haven’t flown above a super active lightening storm at 30,000 feet then you really haven’t seen anything that spectacular.
