11/03/18 - Built in a Hurry, now Gone in Less

Recent melting snowbanks revealed that a long standing building at the Gander Canadian Forces Base had been demolished. Originally the building was erected in wartime as a 150 bed American Military Hospital completed in December 1942. With the war over the Americans withdrew leaving their section of early Gander to be re-purposed. Over the last 30 years and probably longer it has housed the various CFS Officers Mess's. For 68 years it stood large on the Gander Airport landscape. A March 16, 2011 photo records the loss. (Larger Photo)

11/02/09 - Waiting on a Snow Day

While never really wishing for a big snow storm, there is a certain feel to having a snow day on a day off when the best thing to do is stay inside and watch the weather outside. The last two snow storms here in Central Newfoundland were predicted to dump vastly more amounts than what actually fell. They leave in their wake the anticipation of a real big blow that drops a lot of snow and enjoying the resulting snow day. (Larger Photo)
