Despite a bit of snow now and then (our January 2016 Snowpocalypse delivered approximately four inches of fluffy, pristine beauty), it’s been a mostly sunny Pittsburgh winter this year.
This is Adam’s and my first winter in Pittsburgh, and we believe — based on reports from our PGH friends — that this winter is a bit more mild than usual (despite hitting record lows in January).
It is a solid fact, however, that a typical Pittsburgh winter fluctuates between freezes and thaws on a regular basis (hence the joy of Pittsburgh Potholes), so we live in a logic-based hope that Pittsburgh winters will continue to be less brutal than winters which may or may not take place further north of our current location.
With such a lovely winter, Adam and I have been trying to keep very active. As we live less than a mile from TechShop, Adam usually rides a Pittsburgh Healthy Ride bike to and from work, and I like to walk when I go to TechShop because I’m obsessed with learning more about the buildings in our neighborhood.
Here are some pictures of Bakery Square from my walk between Shadyside and TechShop around noon today.
This weekend, TechShop has been displaying the art from the Pittsburgh Fun-A-Day exhibition. Participants make a commitment to producing one piece of fun a day every day in January (for a total of 31 pieces of fun). The results are displayed at an exhibition, which this year is being held at TechShop.
It’s been a happy winter so far.
