CWEnder Nancy Johans snapped a photo of Art Hill this afternoon. “Lots of sledding action here,” she reported, “and quite a few brave people are walking the lake.”
On a somewhat related note, there was a comment today on a post I published in 2011 about the Nathan Frank Bandstand. You can read that post here, and Greg Gude’s comment follows:
“I have always loved the bandstand in Forest Park across from the Muny. It is an iconic St. Louis landmark! I’ve always referred to it as ‘The Temple on an Island’. This week, the week of Feb.14, 2021, celebrating the 257 birthday of St. Louis, with the lake or moat surrounding the bandstand frozen solid, it was possible to cross over and visit the bandstand, something obviously not generally possible. What a treat! Thanks to everyone involved for keeping this structure in great condition. May it always be preserved!”
Thanks to both of you for weighing in on what’s happening in Forest Park.

Sadie Dog and I spent some time at Art Hill on Saturday, too – a wonderful day with people enjoying that brilliant sun and some real sledding bravado! Many dogs were having a very good time, too. A welcome contrast to the Polar Vortex!
