We skirted the edge of the snowstorm by getting out early and followed a pretty clear path over the Hot Metal and along the river to where the Eagle Has Landed in Hays - and actually saw him or her take off over our heads. We were pretty sure we made out the nest, though a hazy reality was trumped by the much clearer photo on Pam's phone. By the time we reached our cars, everyone's hair was frosted. Back at Commonplace Coffee we settled into the warm interior as the snow swirled outside - talked books, arts, wildlife, travel - how civilized is that?
- Alice Hoffman's book Museum of Extraordinary Things - which inspired Pam to call our attention to (I think) the Center for PostNatural History in Garfield, featuring things like "atomic age rodents."
- Pittsburgh Ballet Theater's Ketubah
- Jet lag treatments: Ambien, melatonin, sour cherries (will report on the latter next week.)
