About Town - February 14, 2021

This week's photos of Columbia

(Click/tap on pics to see larger, sharper images.) 

In observance of Valentine's Day, here's a photo titled "3 of Hearts" that was published on Columbia Spy a few years ago.

Is this robin the sign of an early spring?
Let's hope so!

Yep, it's cold out.

This helicopter was flying over the town on several days last week.

The river was as smooth as a mirror at one point.

Here are more scarves from Columbia Presbyterian.

Watching the ice "flow"

Several gulls were "reflecting" on the river.


This newspaper dispenser has become a trash depository.

Letters are needed at Joe's Steak Shop, and people need to stop stealing them.

This oversized load somehow got onto Walnut Street. It took up almost two lanes.

It was heading towards Columbia River Park.

On the way, it almost got stuck on the railroad tracks at the entrance to the park.

And stopped here temporarily . . .

. . . right in front of the Columbia Water Company.

The driver then began backing it onto Heritage Drive.

The turn was pretty sharp.

But thanks to some skillful driving, and direction by a helper . . .

. . . the driver actually made it.

The truck came to rest again on Heritage Drive.

This structure along Riverfront Drive appears to have been taken from the back half of the load. (The foundation was built the week before.}


A photo from Columbia Spy was published in the January/February 2021 edition of the Watch & Clock Bulletin, a publication of Columbia's National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors.

Here's the cover of the recent bulletin.

Here's the photo as published on the September 30, 2020 Columbia Spy HERE.
