Niagara Gazette — One thing led to another, including an e-chat with grandson, Doug, a regular at ASCE meetings near Pittsburgh. As it happens, one of the contest’s “Viewer’s Choices” is a weather-ruined covered bridge not far from his home town. Guess rotted boards don’t count as “failures of engineering.”
We doubt you’re going to find these calendars in Barnes & Noble (not that we’re going anywhere near the place, what with the Trader Joe’s mob scene) but the Society itself has them on sale at two for $20. While the website turned out harder to negotiate than the South Bridge on hockey night, you could call 703-205-6203 to get started.
Our very own bridge — beauty in the eye of the right beholder. Come visit. You can see it from our backyard, 12 months a year. Who needs Switzerland?Contact Polly and Doug at firstname.lastname@example.org.
