So I'm a roofer. And the other day I thought I would take some good pictures of the Niagara River and The Turbines that supply most of the east coast with power. And the building I worked almost hangs out above the river. And that's Canada across the river.

American Water Turbines

It's very cold and windy up on the roof. I'll take more pics of the roof I'm on. There is a low cover and you have to either squat-walk or bend to the front and walk. It gets annoying after awhile. I'll show you guys on Tuesday.

That's cool, I always thought being a roofer would be hard.

Nice pictures. I went to our country property today and took a few pictures of the Texas countryside. I might post a few later.

Cananda?! When did they sneak up on our border like that? Attack those surreptitious invaders!

Have any more high-rez ones? You know, you can change the upload settings in Photobucket, set it to 1mb max.

I'd have to say about 500 ft above the gorge.

I've always loved high places. There's an indefinable feeling of tranquility that such places impart to me.

You must have felt above it all Jeb, both literally and figuratively.
