Lovely Time of Year on Earth and ...Mars


Following any snowfall in 42N country is the aftermath of frozen water cleanup. Included in the plowing is a brown colored snow formed from a combination of snow removal chemicals and who knows what from auto traffic. Here on Blairs Ferry Road in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is a glimpse of the recent five inch snow fall and lunch time traffic. Pretty appealing right? Well its not our best look for the year.

At the lower right in the photo is a sign for the El Kahir Shriner's building. That organization helps sick kids at hospitals through their money raising fez events within our community. I am told that El-Kahir is Arabic for... Mars. Hmm. Know that.
