The Cold Returns

There's a bumper sticker made by Daffy Dan that says "Cleveland - You've got to be tough", and it's true. While we may not be Buffalo, we still get snow and nasty winter weather. I dread the cold weather and the snow, but when it's at it's worst, I can't help but get to work. Coffee in one hand, camera in the other, I ventured out to take some photos of the first snowfall of the season and do a little bit of exploring. Traffic was a mess so I didn't want to go far and lucky for me I don't have to.

After taking this shot I heard someone walking behind me. I turned around and saw a man about my age. This is a common spot for the homeless but I don't think this guy was one of them. I actually think he was a drug dealer there to pray on the homeless. We made small talk about the weather for a few minutes and then I headed on my way.

I love the train tracks in the snow.

An old favorite.

I'm not quite ready for another Cleveland winter, but like it or not I'll be out in the weather doing what I always do.
