It’s been so cold that the snow hasn’t melted off the door or even the outside light. Meanwhile, the snow plow got stuck on Thursday and no one has come back to plow or treat my street. Like the snow on the door, I am stuck.

I started this blog eleven years ago today. Who knew overnight construction (still going on) and overwork (lessening somewhat) would get in the way of this blog? I didn’t, but life goes round and round. I hope to post every now and then.

Imagine my neighbors’ surprise when they found out their house was lined with paper and duct tape. One of many surprises.

I’m a big fan of environmental art and appreciated the person who took the time to build this for all to see.

No way to get in or out, no plumbing or electricity. Apparently it has something to do with a lawsuit.

The old smokestack, photographed earlier when the work of dismantling began, is now just a pile of bricks behind a fence. Apparently the bricks are such an old style that they will all be ground up. Too bad as they are interesting looking.

In the weeks ahead they will be dismantling this old smokestack that has been a landmark around here. I’m going to miss it.

Ah, the first day of spring welcomed in by pigeons on a copper ledge. Soon there will be something interesting on ground level.
