When is a Spot “Your Spot”? When it Snows! Of Course

Although we’ve covered this before, its worth saying it again:

A open parking space, is never your spot! Even if you have to walk UPHILL BOTH WAYS, against the wind, and in 12 feet of snow to get to your car. So, Get over it.

Christmas Lights in the Old Section

DSC_8906

The old section had overall less lights than the new section the light displays and decorations were great nonetheless.

The entire length on Noel avenue by far was the best, specifically close to the corner of Bartlett, just the shear number of decorations was amazing. Ira Ct was very interesting too for their dead end display.

Although I didn’t drive up and down I have no idea how people live with their cars bottoming out on blocks like abbey and frank. On top of that, the pooling of water and ice was absolutely horrendous which was inches thick everywhere.
