I can make the 15th and also have never been up the Smith Tower. I guess being a Smith I should go.

Also, you can bring tripods up to the Smith Tower, so bring your zoom and wide angle for interior shots. Parking will be free on Sunday, but the tower is $7.00 paid after the ride up.

Yeah, we Smith's own the place JB ;)

Still not sure if work will keep me from going, but if I can go either day works just as well for me.

Smith's Tower was featured on the news tonight, it will be sold by Auction in March as it was foreclosed, I believe. The building is 70% vacant, wow! So that means we definitely are able to get in?

Any suggestion on where to park?
01/13/2012 12:50:45 AM · #58
in a safe place? :-)

Will check that out, as I haven't been to that area much.

Besides, the weather is looking a bit iffy that day, with rain/snow showers. Don't think that is going to stop me...might have to invest in a rain sleeve for the camera.

Let's hope it is an unlikely chance of snow showers...you know how the weather forecast is often wrong here!

Well, I hafta work this weekend. :-( Woulda liked to meet a bunch of you on Sunday. I hope the weather cooperates, since it now calls for snow starting Saturday evening (at least north of Seattle).

So, I must change my status from Definitely Maybe But Probably If Possible (DMBPIP) to Wish I Could But I Can't So I Won't (WICBICSIW)

What happened to Sofia? What's the update, unless she isn't going to be there?
01/14/2012 07:40:20 PM · #68
Sorry to be a spoil sport but I have to bag out. I committed to doing a photo class at the senior center this week and thought I would have the prep work all done by now. Did not finish it today and have an engagement tonight so that leaves Sunday ... darn.

Have fun without me and just drop my name for entry into the Tower.

She dropped out about a dozen or so posts ago.

So we meet on the observation deck or in the lobby downstairs?
01/15/2012 02:48:04 AM · #73
Observation deck I think ... will give folks time to arrive ...
01/15/2012 02:49:22 AM · #74
Let's meet in the lobby. Mrs. Roflmao will be tagging along with me as well.
01/15/2012 11:04:05 AM · #75
Just in case I am running late, due to 520 being closed and myself being in an unfamiliar area, I'll wait in the lobby. We have snow around our neighbourhood, there is one hill that can be slippery, it's often undriveable when we do have these snow episodes...but I aim to allow enough time to get there.
