Downtown is looking festive for Winter Walk but something’s missing

Xmas decorations in Northfield at 68 degreesXmas lights on Bridge Square with no snow

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:

    It’s false advertising but I’ve changed the photo banners at the top of the side to the winter set. Maybe that will help.

  2. What’s up with slide no. 10, the First National Bank clock? Looks more like a price tag than the time of day.
