Springfield Gothic at Trinity Church

Through a grant from the Boston Foundation of Architecture, the Springfield Public Schools and Trinity cooperated on a program to teach city art students about Gothic architecture and stained glass. Their artwork is on display in the chapel this week.

Snow recap

I went out this morning planning on recreating the shots I published on January 27, but I was able to recreate only one of them. The driveway is wider here because it was plowed last week, but the snow across the street is even higher.

The current version of the shot of the path next to the garage would have been just a white pile of snow for the entire frame, so instead I took a picture of the garage, basically 180 degrees from the previous shot. The garage hasn't collapsed yet, and the snow's starting to melt a bit, so I guess it's safe. Mr. Toad hopes it is; he spends any time he isn't motoring in it.

Back from Pittsburgh

We returned from Pittsburgh yesterday. Here's Mr. Toad covered with salt and dirt from the trip, sitting in front of the fresh piles of snow in our driveway.

Angstrom and CL.

Super Bowl Sunday

Steelers fans lined up in front of the bar across the street from Jesse & Aurora's at 11:59 a.m. (they opened at noon).

Snow at Home; Angstrom in Pittsburgh

Our friend Mary Beth sent us this shot, calling it the abandoned house on Firglade Ave. We hope to get home on Monday and start attacking the snow and ice.

Here in Pittsburgh we have Angstrom with his mother
and in his Steelers hat in preparation for tomorrow night.

A Couple More Shots of Angstrom


This is the third color of solid food for Angstrom. Previously he tried white (rice cereal) and orange (sweet potatoes), and now he's moved on to green (avocado). That may be why he looks a little doubtful here.

Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion

The reason for our Pittsburgh visit is to see Angstrom (and his parents); the excuse for the trip was to go to a Sarah Lee and Johnny concert. Here are a few shots of them.
