17 years and your uncle still pulls off the sweatshirt and plaid flannel combo

Yeah that happened around 2006-09. They were planning a new geothermal power plant that uses heat from the earth to run a steam turbine. It turned out that the optimal place to build it was already occupied by those buildings. They talked about knocking them down, but people freaked because it would screw up the historic Cleveland skyline. The compromise was just shifting everything over a few blocks. There's some really cool before and after photos out there. Just Google "Cleveland steamer pics"

edit:

Comfort..... comfort never changes

Some of those building have moved.

Seems like you have a great family and life ahead of you.

I've been scrolling through these pics for the last half hour. These are fascinating thanks for the suggestion!
