DH and I were on the road yesterday, traveling to Minneapolis for the annual meeting of the International Association of Jazz Record Collectors. He is president again this year and wanted me by his side. Fortunately, my schedule is flexible enough right now that I could do that.
I love taking photos of rusty signs, old buildings and dilapidated bridges. Not sure what will happen to them, but for now it's fun to watch for them and stop occasionally in my quest for the perfect tree.
The sky was blue and almost cloudless when we left, but we encountered a rain storm in Wisconsin. We were fortunate; the Minneapolis area was hit with six tornadoes and severe storms. One touched down, damaging the convention center downtown. I don't think anyone was injured, but we were thankful to arrive at the hotel in the suburbs where the IAJRC meeting is being held and to see friends and associates had arrived safely.
