Take Me Out

Opening Day at the ballpark is always a sure sign of warmer weather on the way. This glass window in one of the concessions stands is frosted with the Miller Park logo.

Oh Hail!

A severe thunderstorm rolled through the area mid-day today, and it began to hail - a LOT. I pulled off the road into a parking ramp just in case it got worse. After things let up, I got back on the road to my destination, and there was about a half-inch of ice pellets, which were larger than peas, but smaller than marbles. Today's photo was taken in a parking lot, where the rain and hail mixed to make a slippery ride.

Early Open

This afternoon, the Brewers Rising Stars played an intrasquad game at Miller Park, giving the stadium a chance to make sure everything's up and running for the home opener this Monday. The Blue team beat the White team, 2-0, and the players will be headed to their minor league assignments for the regular season.

April Theme Day - Edges

The April Theme Day is Edges

After looking through the archives for something with hard, geometric edges, I realized that maybe I wasn't headed the right direction. I came across this one from a summer trip to the lakefront. I like the irregular edges of the flower, and the way the colors contrast.
