#ALsnOMG11: The next day

A better perspective - #ALsnOMG11. acnatta/FlickrWe figured we’d share the view from just outside our window this morning. It may look beautiful, but it’s not something you’ll want to venture out in this morning if you don’t have to.

We’re currently hearing multiple reports of dangerous and impassible roads, layers of snow and ice blanketing the streets of metro Birmingham, AL and most area businesses (and government offices) are closed. While it’ll probably be nice to take a couple of pictures from right outside your door (we’ve set up a page with all of the ways you may do so & we’ll share any that come in), we’re hoping that folks for the most part stay inside today.

1,000 DVDs on sale tomorrow downtown

Apparently The Bottletree‘s Brian Teasley will have his entire DVD collection (estimated to be somewhere around 1,000) available for sale tomorrow at What’s on 2nd? at 2306 2nd Avenue North in downtown Birmingham. The sale starts at 11 a.m. with some of the titles available for as little as $5. According to the email that went out earlier this evening, it will be “a virtual horde of great classics, documentaries, tv series, rare British comedy, Criterion collection, and foreign films.”

Food bank collection campaign announced

Mayor Langford publicly thanked the city’s employees for the tons (literally) of food that were collected for Haiti recently during his weekly report to the City Council this morning. He then publicly challenged Birmingham’s citizens to do the same for people in their own communities, asking the City Council to declare November 5, 6 and 7 as the dates for a citywide food collection drive and then challenging them and the local business community to match a $10,000 donation from the mayor’s office for the area food banks. The council immediately stepped up to the place.

So after you’ve finished voting for your candidate on Election Day, start preparing to bring non-perishable food items to various locations once details are announced by the mayor’s office.
