Lovin' the Snow

So, TJ and I went dowtown to look at a couple of shops and I wanted to see if the bay was frozen. Well, we didn't go walk on the ice (now, that would just be dumb), but here are a couple of pictures of Sturgeon BAY.

The top picture is looking up into Sturgeon Bay. You can see the shipyard (TJ's second home) on the right with the Lakers (the HUGEMONGOUS ships in the yards). Some of these babies are over 1000 feet. It's not a great place to be when the wind chill is below zero.

This second picture is one of the little boat harbors close to town (actually town is in the background. You can see the little steel bridge on the right. That is one of the two bridges in town. Someone on the city council or something thinks we need another bridge. Um, well, we only have 9,500 people here. I'm thinkin' 2 bridges are plenty. Oh well. Gotta spend those tax dollars on SOMETHING! I wish they'd put in a skateboard park or a skating rink for the kids. Now, THAT would be worthwhile. Oh well.

I love these photos. But I'm glad we don't have snow.

How cool that there's snow on the water. That's water on the boat docks, right? Or is it like Detroit Lake on a hot Oregon summer with no water and boats docked on the dry lake bed?

TWO bridges and they want another? I too vote for a skating rink. Or better... a Quilting Center of some sort! NOW THAT would be well spent tax dollars!
