I was in a workshop on March 27, 2015 on the 6th floor of SU’s Bird Library, and took photos from all of the windows I could find. Here they are:

Because of the continuous cold throughout the winter of 2014-2015, Letchworth State Park’s Genesee River and falls completely froze over, and the spring created a frozen volcano. Here’s some photos I took of the river and the volcano after they had already started melting on March 9th, 2015.
Here’s the middle falls:
Here’s a couple of views from high up of the river / falls and Portage Bridge:
Needless to say, we can’t wait for spring!

We went to the George Eastman House this past week to see The Dutch Connection:
After getting our eyeballs full of spring flowers, we saw a video on the North Organ, donated by Dr. Richard Zipf. Here’s a quick history of the Aeolian Pipe Organ at the Eastman House. I would love to hear organ music in the Eastman House!
We went to go into the Dawn of Technicolor exhibit, and somebody started feeling ill, I won’t mention any names, but I had to take Thursday off from work because I still wasn’t feeling well. Much better now, but I missed the exhibition!! However, there is a book. . .
This is the wall of bottles of dyes outside the Technocolor exhibition, it is SO cool!!

No fireworks on July 4th, because I always love the fireworks at Oswego’s Harborfest. But we did go to Oswego yesterday with the hope that it would clear, and it did, but it was windy all day, which made it nice and cool. They are dredging at the Port of Oswego:
Here’s a tugboat taking a barge of dredge out to dump in Lake Ontario: You can hear how windy it is in this video.
I didn’t go swimming because I didn’t feel like dealing with the rough water yesterday, even though the water was warm:

I mean, doesn’t it look like it?
Seriously, I went to Lake Ontario at Oswego last night, and this is what Lake Ontario looked like! Unbelievable! I’ve never seen this before.
See this scene:
Ahhhh, summertime. . .
I learned a new word last night: snowbergs. Yeah, I’d rather not have learned that word, ever. But you have to admit, this is pretty cool, now that we’re (supposedly) into springtime now.

Last night was a beautiful night and we decided to go the NYS Fair. I like going with a list of things to do so I don’t forget anything. First up, the OHA Onondaga Lake exhibit along with the other Onondaga Lake exhibits.
Then on to the sand sculpture – which was still being created. Hmmm, I was kind of disappointed that it wasn’t ready for the fair, but at least I got to see most of it.
Then to the Empire Theatre where we were hoping there was going to be organ music, but no, now it’s limited to Mon & Tues. So we skipped out of there and went to see the model train display.
Then eating at P-Z-O’s, which is only at the fair, which is too bad, because the red sauce is good. A family sat at the same picnic table next to us, and the kid spilled her water all over me. At least it was just water.
And the daily parade. Which I just realized this morning, while I was watching it, I was being televised, so I was on TV. If I find the clip, I’ll post it here!

I’ve been to Oswego Harborfest for four years now, and it *always* rains on this weekend! I drove through some wicked rain just to get to Oswego. No beautiful sunset tonight, and it rained the whole time, but I kept covered with a tarp.
I did film it with the camera under the tarp, so it’s a bit shaky. The fireworks were fantastic, as always!
