I looked over my back fence and saw this bizarre structure in the lot across the alley.

Even after 20 years, that blue sky looks very familiar, @FISH.  That last hijacked plane flew across Pennsylvania, though not sure if it flew over Philly.  Were you aware of it before it crashed?

The average Joe was NOT aware of the hijacked plane in PA. Our Mayor instructed for all buildings over 20 stories high to be evacuated immediately shortly after 10 AM. I was working in Center City Philadelphia. Seeing folks running out of tall building running to get home was like something out of a 1950's Sci-Fi movie.
There are 80.54 miles from New York City to Philadelphia PA.
There are 198.14 miles from Philadelphia to Shanksville PA.
At 9:28 a.m.: United 93 was hijacked.
9:57 a.m.: The passenger revolt begins.
10:01 a.m.: The hijackers decide to crash the plane
Jarrah again asked the other hijacker if he should crash the vehicle. This time, he was told, “Yes, put it in it, and pull it down.”
Jarrah pulled the control wheel hard to the left, causing the plane to fly upside down, and then to crash into the ground at a speed of 580 miles per hour.

It was 10:03 a.m.

Over the weekend, I took a visit to Langhorne PA.
People are still cleaning up after the visit from IDA.

I like your seed rack.

The promised famous stainless steel measuring spoon. It has proved perfect to scoop out tomato seeds for next year.

The measurement size imprinted on the handle says PINCH. I have had this little beauty since at least 1998. Somehow it has survived multiple moves and the re-outfitting of any given kitchen makeover.

Look, Chief, you can't go off half-cocked looking for
vengeance against a fish. That shark isn't evil. It's not
a murderer. It's just obeying its own instincts. Trying to
get retribution against a fish is crazy.

PINCH spoon. I never knew what to do about the pinch measurement.

A small sunflower plant that grew when a seed fell down from my bird feeder.

Some Hibiscus flowers.  Not mine.  I came across them during an EllGab Garden walk.

@Rikki Gins I am fond of Hibiscus flowers.
The September equinox 2021 is on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 (in 6 days).  :)
In my neighborhood, chrysanthemums are kings and queens of gardens at this time of year. What about your area?
There are nights where one can feel the season changing.

As the world watches--
"SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK – Sequoia National Park was closed and the giant trees bearing its namesake were potentially threatened on Tuesday as two wildfires ignited steep and dangerous terrain in California’s Sierra Nevada. Both fires were thought to be moving in the direction of the Giant Forest, which is home to more than 2,000 giant sequoias, including the General Sherman Tree, the largest tree on Earth by volume."

Not to worry, @FISH.  The giant trees will be alright.  The situation is being 'Monitored' and if need be, rain can be moved into the area.

I am please to learn that there is a plan. All my life I wanted to see these giant trees @Rikki Gins  :)

You will see them @FISH and it will be something that you will remember for the rest of your life.  I was in a redwood forest some ten years ago.  There was complete silence there, something we don't experience in a town or city.  If you click on the photos they will become enlarged plus slightly clearer.
