Last year at about this time of April, I wrote in a blog post “I noticed yesterday that dozens of new trees had been planted along South Highway 3…” and included 4 photos like the one on the left above. This morning we woke up to 6 inches of wet cement. It’s been one of the coldest and snowiest Aprils on record. Good thing we’re tough.

Many Northfield area well-wishers and maybe a few of the occasionally arrested turned out for Northfield Police Sergeant Mark Murphy‘s retirement party at Northfield City Hall Council Chambers yesterday afternoon.

I went to the premiere of Genesis: The Art of Creation at Carleton College’s Weitz Cinema last night.
‘Genesis’ is a
Paul Krause documentary about Northfield artist Fred Somers and the creation of the largest painting of his career. I blogged about it earlier this week.
If you missed it, you’ll have another chance on April 11, 7 pm at St. Olaf’s Viking Theater in

The warm, snowless night didn’t seem to deter crowds from descending on downtown Northfield last night for Winter Walk 2012.
Despite the warmth, fire pits were popular.

Northfield’s Winter Walk has been near and dear to my Northfield-related blogging, photography and podcasting for ten years (this year is the 14th Annual Winter Walk):
A year ago, I
blogged two of my favorite Winter Walk photos. I’ve included another favorite with this blog post: Council members Rhonda Pownell and Betsey Buckheit with Mayor Mary Rossing in the Winter Walk 2008 parade with the NDDC’s cow, Patty Cash.
See y’all downtown on Thursday.
I’ve been neglecting my Northfield-oriented photography hobby lately but yesterday, after getting my hair cut by Lana Huberg at Salon Synergy (her third Wigley customer of the week), I noticed that the fall colors along Riverwalk were particularly stunning, even though we’re technically way past peak color. With the low gray cloud cover and light wind, it made for good photography conditions.

A few of the regulars from the Northfield Community Band have formed the Bridge Square Band and made their debut at the Taste of Northfield last week.
Trumpet player Dan Bergeson introduced the band to the crowd and they got a few numbers in before the storm hit.
