Water running out the window

This is the armory. Today was a rainy day.  I wonder why water is running out of a pipe through the window?  I know Chester Creek runs UNDER the armory, but what is this water all about? A group of people want to perserver the armory which is located at 13 Avenue East and London Road.  Here is what the Historic Duluth Armory website has to say:

The Duluth Armory stands as one of Duluth’s most historic and influential buildings. Preserving and restoring the Duluth Armory represents an incredible opportunity for the people and organizations of Duluth to come together in a project that will serve as a model for the country.

I took this photo as I walked in the Skywalk at noon. There had been snow in the morning. When I woke up, I looked out my bedroom winter and saw snow over the Hillside. I should have taken a photo of the snow, but I was too depressed about our “sprinter” weather. Read Rick Lubbers’ column on sprinter here and here.

Coke truck unloads at Miller-Dwan Medical Center

As I sat eating my healthy lunch at Whole Foods Co-op I watched this Coke truck parked in front of the Miller-Dwan Medical Center. I thought it ironic that a truck carrying soda pop would be parked so long in front of a facility which is supposed to promote good health.  As far a Duluth weather goes, you can see that most of our snow has melted. There is a little pile of snow on the left had side of this photo, just left of the sign with two arrows on it. Lake Superior is just beyond the buildings.
