    The CBD is being decorated this week, the horse trough has been relocated to the Vicky Hase Mulch circle and the tree is in place...

    Wheaton had their wreaths on the CBD light posts last week. Today's snowfall makes it feel more like Christmas time.

    BTW-You can thank me for the snow. I had my car washed this morning, trusting what the weather folks said about the snow tracking south of I-80.

    Cliché, that photo is lovely - thank you for sharing. Wheaton had wreaths up on Fawell/22nd last week; with the snow it is pretty festive. I do feel that now we're hopping right from Halloween to Christmas more and more these days. Then again, I'm old enough to wonder when did people start decorating trees for Halloween LOL

    Well, that would be the footprint of, and now vacant hole of, the removed, Vicky Hase watering hole (some called it a fountain)...at the Civic Center entrance.

    Don't need one. This entire forum and its members are "The Vociferous Minority." I somehow remember the word "little" was in there too back in the time the phrase came up in a Village meeting.

    PSA: very nice weather today folks. Go unplug your lights if you don't have time to take them down.
