The smell hit me as I stepped out of the elevator and all at once I went from calmly waiting for spring to desperately pining for its arrival. The terrible lighting at the downtown flower show produced some surprisingly cool images. I hope that one day soon I can see flowers outside and not just in the 8th floor auditorium.

There is a river down the street from my house. A big river. Downstream about four miles is bustling downtown Minneapolis. Thousands of people drive right past this park everyday. This is an urban stretch of the river, yet it's quiet. ONe of the many things I love about my hometown.

The Mississippi is flooding and she's taking down Harriet Island with her. Rivers all over the state are breaking their banks. There will be a lot of water in my future.
Very early Sunday - A Saturday night birthday party went late into the night. Great band. Lots of fun was had.

I could see my grass. I could see the curbs. I considered packing away the long johns. I wore shoes first and kept the boots in the car. Brit's Pub put out the patio furniture. I saw the end in sight. It was spring. It really was.
With today's snow, we can claim the 5th snowiest winter on record. woohoo.
Another overnight shift. I started the night at 10:30, shooting the gigantic full moon from Loring Park.
And at 7am, I tried to capture the morning fog but had little success. I didn't get what I was hoping for, but I am glad that guy in the red walked over that bridge. Really helped me out.

My four year work-versary. I celebrated by playing on the roof at sunset. I wish there had been cake.
My typical dinner table. A couple signs of spring today. Not only was it above 50 degrees, but I found the peanut butter cup eggs at the gas station. So good.
Grey and rainy on Wednesday. Jannie and I went to the Institute of Arts to see the Titian exhibit. I tried a new coffee shop. It reminded me of a Portland coffee shop. Perhaps it was the weather. With my coffee in hand I stepped outside and for just a moment it felt like Oregon, but for the 3 feet of snow and lack of mountains.
I took a number of photos waiting for a 6 o'clock live shot. I had set my camera down, and then heard this plane. I got it just in time.

We got together to remember our friend. Miss you, Darcy. You'd have loved this story.
My mom's birthday. The whole family got together. The three grandkids ransacked the house and terrorized the dog. A ceramic bunny did not survive the evening intact. It is in intensive care and should pull through.
Baby Jude is already one month old and was baptized this morning. The Bakemans know how to throw a good baptism brunch. Delicious.
