Get your ducks in a row with Huntsville weather

Huntsville

Huntsville, Alabama – home of NASA, Rocket Scientist Werner Von Braun, The US Space & Rocket Center, Redstone Arsenal and King Cotton – provides many stories that are locally inspired but that are often of national interest as well. Topics include current Mayor Tommy Battle, The Historic Huntsville Depot, and picturesque Big Spring Park.

Sweet Home Alabama – Lynard Skynard

After I pulled up the photo of Jeff Cook of the Alabama band last week, I took a second look at the photo set I have of Lynard Skynard hoping to find a shot suitable for a future TOCC TV cover. Alas, the band is worthy but my photography is not. Well, reall it is, but putting a horizontal aspect ratio onto a verticle cover just isn’t going to fit.

Jeff Cook Of Alabama Signs Off

I don’t really think that Jeff Cook has been hanging out on the square in downtown Huntsville for 107 years. The photo above was taken in 2005 when the fiddler guitarist of legendary country/pop band Alabama stopped over in Huntsville to sign autographs at the historic Harrison Brother’s Hardware store in downtown Huntsville. The band was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

Snowy Big Spring

Remember the olden days when we used to build web pages with lots of tricks like this? In honor of the white stuff on the ground this weekend, I decided to… stay indoors and drag out this shot, actually nine shots stitched together from the great snow of 2011. I took a bunch of photos in the snow back then that I really like, mostly because I don’t have to go out and get them now.

The Ground Hogs Have Arrived!

Again, I would have to go back inside for the camera. But, before I did, all three lined up right next to each other, one looking left, one looking right, and the one in the middle looking straight at me. It would have been the perfect shot. When I got back with the camera, they would have none of it, and summarily refused to cooperate for their group shot. I swear, it was if they were goading me before I went to get to the camera!
