Here's a look at the backside of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception from Congress Street. There's not this much snow around here anymore. As a matter of fact, Portland's WinteRush, the city's winter festival this weekend is on the verge of being canceled because of get this-- lack of snow! They say if we don't get significant snow by today; it will be canceled or at least postponed. Vancouver can ship in snow for Olympic events, but we can't? Oh well, this year it's not a problem for me. I visited my cardiologist yesterday, and all the signs continue to point towards a recovery that is steadily, moving ahead, on course.
