And there was much rejoicing!

It's official. The worst is behind us. We still have quite a bit of winter to endure, but the worst is definately behind us. As if to prove it, I heard birds chirping as I left the house and saw a hint of dawn's early light as I drove to work this morning. Yes my friends, the worst is behind us.

I was in Minneapolis when I took this photo, but since my heart was technically still in St. Paul, I thought it was ok to post this. It's the steeple of the Hamline University Methodist Church steeple on the Minneapolis campus.

Como Park Conservatory

Unfortunately, it was closed when I got there but I got some good photos of the outside. Maybe next time I'll actually get inside.

Winter Ritual

When the salt and white guck of winter get to be too much, it's time to head to the car wash.

The Ford Power Plant

Ford Motor Company has a factory in St. Paul. The factory produces Ford Ranger trucks. Ford built this power plant to supply power to the factory. The plant is one of only two vehicle plants in the world powered exclusively by non-carbon energy. The Ford factory gets its power from its own hydroelectric station below the plant on the Mississippi River, saving considerable electricity costs. It's not sexy, but there it is!

Snow: And All Is As It Should Be

Probably not the safest thing to shoot while driving but I made it home ok.

Hamline United Methodist Church

What I love about this image is the wispy white clouds in the air. They almost seem to mirror the slope of the roof.

The St. Paul Curling Club

This is the St. Paul Curling Club. Curling is a curious sport, similar to shuffleboard but on ice. Since the website for the Curling Club can tell you all about it, I'm just going to tell my curling story with pictures. Enjoy.

Artwork on the wall of the Chipotle at Grand and Victoria. Chipotle is a fast food burrito place. Pretty good artwork for a fast food joint. And this big guy appears to be enjoying a burrito made out of metal. Yum.

Garden of Sculpture, St. Paul. It was sunny, but only 8 degrees fahrinheit when these photos were taken.

The intersection of Grand and Victoria is a hub of activity.

Cafe Latte is a particular favorite of mine. Part coffee house, part wine bar, part bakery, part high end cafeteria. Always crowded. Always delicious.
