ODDBALLS INSIDE – FEBRUARY SNOW EDITION

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: February 12, 2017


It started snowing four or five days ago and hasn’t paused since. From what I can see of the forecast, it is going to snow, pretty much continuously, for at least a week. Maybe longer.

And it’s very cold. Which means nothing will melt between storms. Not that there’s much time between storms. One moves out, another moves in. We had about an hour of sun this morning before it started to snow again. Garry was outside shoveling. Now he’s out there shooting pictures. What a guy!

With Garry doing outdoor landscapes of ice and snow, I’ve been taking oddballs inside. You’d think the dogs would be outside hanging with Garry and the shovel, but nope. They are inside, catching 40 winks, the occasional biscuit, and staying where it’s warm and dry. I threw them out a while ago, but all they did was bark twice and make a u-turn back through the doggy door.

Clearly roughing it isn’t part of their current playbook.

BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS

The hospital is actually two hospitals that have become one — the Deaconess Hospital, built in 1896,  and Beth-Israel, originally constructed in 1916. The original buildings are part of the newer buildings. This is true of most hospitals in Boston where the old buildings are a part of new ones.
