Nature Will Get Us All in the End
Over on "Abandoned Berlin" - one of the blogs I follow, which you can find in the right hand column - there's a post today about a villa that was destroyed in WW2. It's located in Steglitz, a district that was Southwest from where I lived in Tempelhof. Fairly suburban, but the structure and decoration of the house looks beautiful.
It was destroyed in allied bombing one night in 1944, and in the style of that blog, the writer was able to gather quite a bit of interesting information about why it is still a shell. That reminds me of one of the houses on Vernon Street NW, where I lived in DC for a few years...in any case, a link to the post is at the end of this one.
Which brings me to the topic of today's post. It's been quite a hard winter, and before the snow that started last night, we had some high winds out at Hawksbill Cabin. It's taken its toll on the pool cabana, shown in the photo here.
While it's not war damage, there are a few small projects we're going to need to get underway - and to me, that is a welcome sign of spring.
Here's the link to that post about the villa in Berlin: http://tinyurl.com/jwylemf
