Zamboni at Riverscape

Today I took a walk across the river to RiverScape where I got to see a Zamboni in action. If you want to watch too, click on the picture below:

Dayton’s in the midst of another winter.
I’m lucky and got to work from home today.
Normally I can see I-75 and Route 4 (aka “Malfunction Junction”) beyond the Greek Orthodox church, but not today.
My view of downtown Dayton’s skyline has been obliterated by snow.
This shot of the Masonic Temple, reflected in my sliding glass door, turned out nice.

A couple of cold photos from Englewood MetroPark this afternoon (click to embiggen):

Google Maps still refers to “Englewood Recreation Reservoir,” but as you can see from Five Rivers MetroParks’ sign about the “lake,” it’s reverting to a “rich floodplain habitat,” not that you can tell that when it’s covered by even a small amount of snow.

Sure, I can go months without posting anything, but give me some snow and a camera, and it gets me in the mood again.

We're having a pre-Christmas blizzard! I went out in it and took some pictures.

As you can see from the picture to the left (taken from the COM TA office on the fourth floor of Millett), it snowed a bunch today. Aren't the trees pretty?

I know that many of you had to work despite the snow today so you won't feel much sympathy for me when I complain that today should have been a snow day. All the local school districts were closed; even Wright-Patt was closed except for essential personnel. Wright State has done a little better at actually having snow days in the last year or so, but I think that only destruction of the campus itself would cause cancellation of classes during a finals week, which this week is. Never mind that there were cars on the side of the road on I-675 this morning, never mind that there were two cars stopped after an accident in the center lane just before the Fairfield Road exit, this is finals week and we're not canceling classes!

Actually, I'm kind of glad they did not cancel classes since canceling classes today would have meant they'd schedule makeup finals on Saturday.
