Island in the Sky

909 Walnut, also known as the Fidelity Building, is an iconic Kansas City landmark. This 1931 Art Deco/Greek Revival building has been a bank, Federal offices, including a Federal weather station, and, currently, a residential tower block. It is also a landmark on my commute.

But like Maine, the peaceful nature of these storms, the dampened sound and gentle snowfall, makes this a pleasant way to spend a weekend. Click on the image for a larger view.
