Despite the cold and snow -- which is getting a little old for most of those who actually live here -- I've had a great time. I'm visiting my Mom, spent a weekend with my brother and sister-in-law, and was able to get my son to his Grandma's as well.
Jim is with the rig at Tucson's Davis Monthan Air Force Base, and I'll be in Ohio another week.
|Part of the Cleveland skyline on a day that was frigid but not sunny. Actually, it didn't feel that bad. The skyscraper on the right is the 708-foot-high Terminal Tower, the fourth-tallest building in the world when it was dedicated in 1930. It originally was an office building atop a new railroad station. Now it's atop a casino, shopping mall, and hotel.|
