Snow Day

Hey, it’s Doug–writing to you from inside my warm house while I watch it snow outside.  It’s a rare occurrence here in Birmingham–maybe once a year–but last night an icy rain started following by big white flakes.  I ventured outside a while ago to take some photos of the neighborhood and thought I’d share…



My house, in the snow




The old stone steps down the street from my house look good covered in snow



This old 1920's apartment building is across the street from our shop in Mountain Brook. Isn't it handsome--especially with some snow on the roof?



Here's our Mountain Brook shop, Petticoat Lane is quiet today but hopefully we'll be back to work tomorrow!

  2. Ohh, if that was all the snow I saw in a winter my life in the world of construction would be so much better!! Enjoy it before it melts away. I am now off to take coffee & soup to our framers that are working in the -10F temps…I still don’t know how they do it. xo
