Snowman Down

I haven’t written a lot about the weather on the blog.  Some blog readers live in a different hemisphere are enjoying summer temperatures and swimming.  I heard from K that it got up to 44, even if Florida.      Deb wrote that we’ve got ice on the rivers.

Storms, low temps, windchill? I know two people who had to get a new furnace.

Weather? You see it on the news.  The computer.  Experience it first hand. Shovel your driveway or your walks.  Listen for two hour delays or school closures.

Tying to not feel down like the snowman,  but hey, it’s WINTER!

Weatherman’s prediction is start at 4 AM and snow until 5 PM. Dress warmly.

My sister had 11 inches of snow in New York City.  What are you experiencing?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

A flag in tatters.   Montclair, New Jersey.  Corner of Claremont and Valley Road.  A revolutionary marker at the site commemorating George Washington’s Temporary Headquarters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parking on the wrong side of the street, going the opposite direction of traffic.  Some neighborhoods ticket for this offense.

No Cardboard (you may have seen this one before)

No Parking in New York City. Just over the line.

Looks like the light is red but perhaps it was flashing

 

 

 

 

Green Eggs.                                                                And other interpretations for this week’s photo challenge may be seen here

 

 

 

 

 


How Many Snowmen in this Collection?

When we got to the party Friday night I saw this display of snowmen in the front entrance hall.  Later, I asked if I could photograph it and blog it and was given permission but  I was told that the edict is, “No more snowmen!”

But the grouping is sweet. Turns out Tim never had a collection. And so the snowman collection began.  But then it had to stop!

Not sure which one was the first snowman in the collection.

Still thinking about a collection begins.

L. wrote and said she collects Creches. When is a collection complete?


Giant Cyclops in the Snow on Carson Street

Family, friends and neighbors suggest pictures for me to shoot.  Tess said, “Ruthie, you have to get a photo of the giant Snow Cyclops!”  But he was over on the South Side and for 9 days I wasn’t driving anywhere.

Thursday night I left the Art Institute downtown and headed for Book Club on Josephine Street, and there he was waiting for me. Not melted yet!   Deep and dirty piles of snow so nowhere to park. Pulled into the bus stop, pushed the flashers button.   Got out of the car completely, careful of traffic on Carson Street, and felt like photographer on assignment.  Self-imposed!   Thanks Tess. Kyklops Tattoo for all your tattoo needs!

The temperature rose today so I was lucky to catch him before he started to melt
