Historic Midtown

This is one of the many renovated homes in historic midtown. Most of this area is run down and long since forgotten. In this area only a little over half of the historic homes have been renovated. This section of town is near Drury University and Cox South, a local hospital.

One Way

There are a few one way streets in Springfield. Most of the time they are in inconvenient areas. About 3 months ago they seriously discussed changing two of the major one-way streets into two lanes each way. It never happened because of the cost associated with changing it over, and the fact that the city council thought that some people may be confused and use it as a one-way anyway. In case you are wondering people in this area can be that dumb.

Mini Van

This is one of the ways that Missouri State University is being eco-friendly. I love that they are trying, even a little bit helps. They have a couple of these and some similar trucks with flat beds.

Storms Rolling In

The rain in this area has been a frequent picture post and I am sorry if you are tired of seeing this type of picture. I enjoy the rain and inclement weather so I love to see this coming in to town.

Press to Order

I have been sick lately so I would like to apologize for not posting for a couple of days. I have been holed up in my apartment. This is from a fast food restaurant that I ate at on my way to work. They usually have amazing BLT's.

Hammons Field

Hammons Field is home to the Springfield Cardinals. I always know when they win. I can see and hear the fireworks. I think they might be on a role. Go Cards!
