Duquesne Incline Still in Service

Public transportation still running in the city.

Photographed Tuesday morning from the Duquesne Incline Platform. No one else was there

I’d seen the fog over city as I crossed Liberty Bridge. It had lifted when I arrived after my drive.

I’d gotten the call that my iPad was ready for pick up after being repaired. It’s been there for weeks.  To get it or not was the question.  I paid over the phone and only Shannon was there working as they Tastar Data Systems opened Tuesday morning at 9. I debated whether I should drive over to Library Road or not but decided to have the iPad at home in my possession again. Face timing family and friends.

Sheltering in place makes you appreciate what one took for granted before. Running errands.

 Our three rivers.

Allegheny River and the Monongahela River meet at the Point to form the Ohio River.

Not Spring Yet

Yesterday I was remarking how I’d heard birds and there was sunlight on my living room floor  and it was staying light so much longer.

There’s a muddy feel in the air, impending Spring. A scent. A feel. Signs of the changing season – oops. The supposed rain shower today wasn’t rain at all but blustery icy sleety snow, blowing around wildly and the thermometer said NO WAY but yes, it was wintry white and howling and my optimism the winter coming to a close, vanished. Just like that!

Spring’s coming though   It always does. I know it. You wish it would hurry.

Cloudy cold with blowing sleety snow.

Happy Groundhog Day

We’re in Gainesville, Florida tonight.

My sister brought a Groundhog postcard of Punxsutawney Phil with her in her bag.

I photographed the card by a friends swimming pool.

So what will it be? Six more weeks of Winter or an early Spring?

Here’s my Square Light Challenge response today. Bridge Lights reflected in the foggy Allegheny River and lights along the River Walk.
