Snowy Pittsburgh

Sorry for the relatively light posting the last few days, but I've been busy!

We are getting our first story floors redone starting Thursday, which meant we spent much of the weekend moving furniture, boxes, etc. up or downstairs. Lots of carrying as well as general picking up.

Add to that a bunch of snow this weekend (as any who watched the Bears-Steelers game today will be able to attest too) which I spent time shoveling, a holiday party Friday night, Colin's basketball game yesterday and 2 research projects, one of which I'm starting the IRB (institutional review board) process with and the other in the midst of data collection and I haven't had time for much else, including blogging. Well, maybe for a snowball fight or two!

These pictures are views from the back of our house down into Oakland, which is the Pittsburgh neighborhood all the universities (University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie-Mellon) and hospitals are located.

The large tower is called the Cathedral of Learning and is the iconic image of Pitt, as the University of Pittsburgh is commonly known. It is the second tallest academic building in the world, after a tower at Moscow State University.

We are getting great sunrises this time of year (we face roughly south) and I'll try to post some photos of those as well

Hey andy,

two questions:

1) Are cold urticaria considered allergies? How can I prepare to swim in San Francisco Bay safely without anaphylaxing while swimming with the sharks?

2) Can you update my link in your blogroll?
