A Whole Lotta Ice

Bright ice

Does anyone know what happened today at the old AAA building (wasn’t it someone’s campaign headquarters last week?) at 21st and Market? When I was driving home from class tonight, I noticed that the front of the building and most of the sidewalk is covered in ice. It looks like it might have come from an upper floor, because there are some serious icicles hanging from the eaves. If this chunk of the city is in your normal commute, please be careful tomorrow, that ice is treacherous.

I braved the cold tonight to go back out and take some pictures of the ice. Apparently my gloves are no match for 12 degree weather, because when I got back my fingers were bright red and hurt like crazy. I had to warm them up in cold tap water, and they are still a little puffy and stiff. Ah, the lengths I go to for the Metroblog. If you’d like to see the complete set, go here.

    That is a LOT of ice!

    Also, how long ago was it a AAA building? I am pretty sure I was in their offices just this summer. I guess they moved out?
