There were about 300 people in the Jan Hollock Recital Hall and more than 700 in the Leslie S. Wright Center Concert Hall next door.
Huckabee spoke to the smaller crowd while the larger, in the over flow section, listening. Then after the first speech, he went over to the Write Hall, spoke and then shook hands afterwards.

UPDATE: 8:06 p.m.; we’ve created the gallery – click here to view. We’re still welcoming photos too!

It’s a little cold outside right now and the real danger may be later today and tonight as the snow turns into ice. We’re hoping that folks will be careful and safe while they’re heading out to their destinations this evening.

If you’ve got any images from the snowfall, drop us a line at photos[at]bhamterminal.com and we’ll get ’em up here for you…

You want to help out the Library of Congress?

Yes, you read that headline right… THE Library of Congress (with a little help from Flickr that is). The partnership, called The Commons, began in June 2007 according to the project page, providing an opportunity for us, the public, to join in on the continuing conversation of history. It is a pilot program, one that will hopefully encourage other cultural institutions to share some of their archives with the world of web users.

Whether it’s a photograph from Birmingham, AL or Birmingham, MI, our help on this project is unmeasurable, so take a moment and browse through a few of these glimpses into our country’s past. It will do a great deal to help its future.
