A week ago yesterday, it was 68 degrees when I took the photo on the left of the Rare Pair‘s winter-themed display window. This morning I noticed that the trees on Bridge Square are all dressed up with Xmas lights for Winter Walk 2012 next week, with nothing but brown grass underneath them. Highs this weekend are forecast to be close to 50 degrees, with possible thundershowers.
It’s good for my mountain biking, but I’d rather have downtown looking like it did two years ago just prior to Winter Walk 2010. See the large slideshow of 28 photos (recommended) or SLOW CLICK this small slideshow:
