David Owen, one of the regular Longfellow365 photographers, took a photo on Jan. 6 that included the -26 degree temperature shown on the TCF Bank sign. Just over 2 months later, the sign shows a temperature that’s 69 degrees warmer.

I headed down Minnehaha Avenue today with good intentions of capturing dried sunflowers in the snowy community garden, when I saw the flashing lights several blocks ahead. Minnehaha was blocked off, and our local firefighters were doing their jobs, putting out a blaze at the former gas station on the NW corner of Minnehaha and 34th Street. A one-time event, Wednesday, March 5, 2014, at 10:43 AM.

One of the workers said he felt like he was working on a fence like the one in the movie Jurassic Park. While this isn’t a massive electrified fence to contain dinosaurs, the modern look of this substation does bring a touch of science fiction to the greater Longfellow neighborhood. Workers were installing anodized aluminum panels up on the new Xcel substation near Hiawatha & 28th St.
