I Can't Believe It's Only January

Several weeks ago the Department of Transportation started to put up a new materials building in Patton, PA. After the building was almost complete it was discovered that it was built to the wrong specs. So, of course, what goes up most come back down.

There was a lot of tongue wagging going on throughout the community as to the outcome of this fiasco.

The new shed is now complete at no cost to the taxpayers as the rebuild came out of the pocket of the builder.

A winter storm that seemed to cover the whole state hit last week giving kids across the state a day off from school.

This is a normal scene in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania at this time of the year.

Whether it's snow or corn this field always looks pretty no matter which time of the year it is.

Looking down 3rd Avenue towards Hastings. If you hit 20 miles an hour as you start down the hill, your foot off the gas pedal, you can possibly drift the whole way into Hastings, a distance of approximately 1.7 miles.

I shot these three pictures on Sunday around 1 in the afternoon from Kirkpatrick Street.

The town takes on a whole new look with the changing of the seasons.

A fire on Monday morning destroyed the gas station building at the Keystone Truck Stop off of Route 22 at the Mundy's Corner Exit.

Fire fighters from about 6 different volunteer fire companies fought the fire in single digit temperatures that caused the water to freeze as soon as it hit the pavement making for hazardous conditions.

After looking through the rubble of the fire, firemen discuss possible causes. The fire marshall was called in for a full investigation.

There was no way I would do the blog without having at least one picture of a bird.
