Stacy Innerst is the artist. You are the caption writer.

CapCon 229 drew clever caption-writers like moths to a flame (click on second image to view), and three of the more experienced entrants finished in the winners circle. Everyone's frustration with this winter's weather should bring a wealth of good candidates to capture the devastating imagery of Mr. Innerst's CapCon 230 illustration.

Send up to three entries to or mail to: Caption Contest/Portfolio, Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd. of the Allies, Pittsburgh PA 15222. Please include name and address and identify your municipality or Pittsburgh city neighborhood. Deadline: Feb. 24. Winners receive a PG umbrella, great for rain, snow, sleet and ice -- or, in short, for a typical Pittsburgh day this year.
