It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

Has the cold weather gotten you into the Christmas spirit yet? The stores want you to be in the Christmas spirit. Strack and Van Til has Christmas trees for sale. Can't people wait until after Thanksgiving? Let's take one holiday at a time.
 The weather has been cold enough for Christmas. There is a fair amount of ice on the river downstream for the Talbert bridge.
Someone pointed out to me on Facebook that the reason the Detour signs had such a sort stay on SR 114 is that the CSX decided to postpone the work on the crossing until the spring. The cold weather apparently does not agree with the type of work they want to do.

There is a ribbon cutting at DeMotte Carpet tomorrow so I may get one more post done this week. It has been a while since the Chamber of Commerce has had a ribbon cutting.

I agree: one holiday at a time, please. Fresh cut tree from a local is better than non-fresh cut from ??
