There’s some beautiful old buildings in North Minneapolis. This is one of them.


Today’s Phenological Observation:

California Condors were seen over South Minneapolis yesterday, high in the sky, riding the thermals. A highly unusual sight, this time of year. Though, come to think of it, it was about -4 or so yesterday, with a -20 wind chill, so there probably weren’t really any thermals. Which makes this very unusual indeed! And what’s the opposite of a thermal? A chiller? Anyway, they were quite a sight, way up high in the bright winter sky, pretty much right in the sun, so it was really hard to get a good look at them. Condors are known for that. Very difficult to see them in Minnesota, this time of year. You pretty much have to be looking for them.
