No, I didn’t take any Winter Walk photos. However, others did.

Alas, by the time I finished dinner with friends at Mandarin Garden and got my annual allotment of wool socks at Rare Pair, Winter Walk 2010 was nearly over.  So I bailed on taking photos. Luckily, others did:

A gorgeous snowfall, just in time for Winter Walk

Northfield seemed to be in the middle of the heaviest snow band from this latest storm. I’m guessing we got 10 inches of the fluffy variety.  Anyone have an accurate total?

It’ll make parking downtown challenging today for holiday shoppers, as to-the-curb removal won’t happen till tonight.  I took these photos shortly after 6 am: Division St. outside GBM and Oolala.

The forecast calls for high temps to be in the teens through next week, perfect for keeping the snow in good condition for Winter Walk 2010 next Thursday, Dec. 9.

Maybe tonight’s big meeting at City Hall with the community event organizers will resolve who has to pay to remove Santa’s house.  Those pesky Winter Walk folks?
