The heat index in Des Moines was about 115 degrees today. Ice cream was no longer viewed as a treat, but as a means of survival!

Project365: Day 193 - Poolhouse Concert Series: Concession Stand

A look at the renovated concession stand at the pool house complex at Camp Dodge.

Day 193 - Poolhouse Concert Series: The Nadas

The last concert of the summer at the Camp Dodge Poolhouse complex featured The Nadas, a popular local band. Looming clouds and the threat of rain kept some people away, but the crowd was larger for this concert. Hopefully the National Guard at Camp Dodge will continue this concert series next summer as well!

Demolition of the old Tifereth Israel Synagogue on Polk Boulevard in Des Moines is almost complete. The main entry staircase and the original main entry towers were the only things left standing when I shot this photo. Sad to see another beautiful old building come down.

Car repairs were not the way I planned to spend a hot Saturday morning of Independence Day weekend, but my car is running great again. And it made for a pretty sweet photo-op.
