Snow time

We had a bit of a snow storm last Thursday, and I decided to take my camera out on my walk the next morning to snap some photos of the aftermath. The accumulation wasn't that much, just a couple feet, but it did snow for 10 hours straight.

This is the parking lot of my building. See that black Audi in the middle? It's parking space is no where near there. I think they just managed to drive that far into the lot and then gave up on actually getting into their spot.

This is Memorial Hall at Harvard. It was built in the 1870s. The freshman dining hall is located in there, along with Sanders Theater. This is Littauer, the Economics Building. I spend a lot of time here. If I'm not home, I'm here.

This is Memorial Church. It was built in the 1930s to honor those who had died in WWI.

Happy Hanukah!

Tonight is the first night of Hanukah. You have no idea the lengths Mike went to to get candles. For some reason, none of the local grocery stores had them until we hit the Auburndale Shaws last night. CVS was also a bust. We were considering stopping at a Synagogue or at the Israel Bookstore, but that would have required going farther afield. Also, it isn't particularly helpful when the clerks direct you to the full-size tapers when you ask for Hanukah candles.

Meanwhile, I have been crocheting up a storm, busting out a few more of the cupcake pin cushions from this pattern. I'm using them has holiday gifts!
