Over half the houses for two blocks have the same wrought-iron fence seen on the left. In the 1920's when many were built there was a iron foundry and fence company that everyone seemed to have used. Apparently sections of the fence and particularly the gates are used for decoration of some sort, because 12 or so years ago one morning people woke up to find their gates gone. Some turned up as far away as LA in antique shops.
The depressing part of the picture to me is that the next two months, March and April, are historically our snowiest months. It's been snowing now for the last 6 days, yesterday it only stopped for 2 hours before resuming.
On the upside, it's warmer than a couple weeks ago, a balmy 18f on the back porch.
