St. Louis is getting pretty excited about the next Presidential debate being held here and we are right in the middle of it all here at Concordia Seminary. Wash U is right down the street from us so we're seeing all the preparations and getting notices of upcoming street closures. Washington University will be the host for the 3rd time and honestly, they know what they're doing. Last night Dale and I went over to that campus to see Brookings Hall, the administration building facing Skinker, which has been lighted in red, white and blue. Dale received his PhD from Wash U so he was enthralled by what we were seeing.
That tiny person in the arch is Dale who was heading up to look at the quad.
We got there just around sunset, so the first pictures showed sky and lighter colors. Here is how it looked when full dark.
Whatever color shields they used to do this, we'd sure like to get some for our buildings at Christmas.
Sometime Friday the Budweiser Clydesdales will be trotting down Forsyth from Skinker to the WU athletic complex on Big Bend. I hope to get over and see that too.
