I think everyone here thinks I'm against a downtown stadium. I'm not...exactly. I just think that this location is not the best place for it. It would be better placed on the West side of the MTS building built over the rail yards squeezed between MTS and the Hilton. Rerouting Harbor drive.

Anybody know what's being built between 4th and 5th just to the north of Washington?

Assuming an expansion to Scripps Mercy but I want to know how tall lol.

Also what's with that weird house in the middle of the construction site, guessing it's historical or something.

I survived the great power outage of '11!

tyleraf Sep 9, 2011 2:10 PM

That was so wierd. I went downtown and all there was on was the red lights on the buildings for the airport and a few lights on generators.

Lipani Sep 9, 2011 10:19 PM

Did anybody else notice a funky smell downtown today? It was like... fried puke.

Snapped this shot during the blackout.

Looking at that picture, I wouldn't have thought there was a blackout. :P



It's awesome how you can see the stars though!

HurricaneHugo Sep 11, 2011 1:27 AM

Can I steal this picture and post it on FB (properly credited of course!)?

Also where is that glow coming from?

Yeah I don't mind. The glow is coming from cars I guess. Street lights were out, but office buildings and some hotels were on backup gens.... condo towers were all dark, but every little red light (for FAA purposes I assume) was lit. INteresting night.

A few more shots
 
So sorry to overload everyone with pics. I have been taking a photography class and I have been taking more pictures than I usually do and I guess I am just eager to post some of the one's that I think people on here would enjoy.

Here you go...

By the way, this is my favorite tree in all of downtown - it's gigantic! Easily 50 to 65 feet taller than your average street tree. Cool stuff.
