O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

This tree is inside of the Clyde Iron Works Building. It is  a unique building which has been transformed from a steel foundry –once making the steel beam for the Empire State Building to an event center with a restaurant. It sat vacant for many years Just think how high the ceiling must be to fit this tree in there… 

Forecast, windy with whitecaps, blowing sand and gravel


I know technically the above photos isn’t the best photo, but I figured my fans would be disappointed if they didn’t get a look at the our beautiful usually deep blue Lake Superior now colored brown with the whitecaps. The wind blew the cap of my head once, after that I held onto my hat. A blizzard with heavy show is forecasted for Sunday. Minneapolis and South Dakota are getting a blizzard today. We’ll see if Duluth gets a blizzard, but for now, “bundle up and hold on to yer hat!”

Below is the photo that I originally figured I’d use in DDP. I snapped this  a little after 2 p.m. at the Clyde Iron Works Restaurant. It is an old factory, which had been rundown for many years. Now it repurposed as a restaurant and Event Center. Fun Fact: Duluth workers made the steel beams for the Empire State Building at this factory. Read more history here.
