POD #14 Sunday, August 26th, 2007

I apologize in advance - this post is going to be a bit long, & more than 1 photo:)

Today, we went to my parents for the afternoon & had dinner there. On the way home, I had to stop at Walmart & then get gas (I wanted to fill up for my trip to school - it's a 1hr drive 1 way). Just as I finished at the gas station, got back in the car, put my belt on & started it, the fire whistle went off. One of the fire dept. in Kingston is right across from the gas station I use. So, this is my tribute to one of our local fire depts:)

(BTW, I posted about the bldgs from CT as updates:) I am also still working on my faves for the week - so unless they list US & "other countries" they are not complete:)


Here is the fire dept:

POD #13 Saturday, August 25th, 2007

Back up-to-date now;) Monday I start school, so there may be a few days I will do things like this. I know. I'm sorry, I will do my best to do 1 a day though, even if I add faves & details later;)

Anyhow, my post for today is a "steaming" building. This photo was also taken in Hartford on 8/18. What do you suppose it is??

This building is (we believe I can't remember for sure - and since I only got this part of the bldg - it's hard to say - I searched online & couldn't find it yet) a part of the Tilcon plant there - they are a cement plant type thing - my husband says he thinks this orange-thingy (LOL - my phrasing;) is one of the evaporators.
