The Lights are up again

Well, Sunday went better than expected. Aside from being extremely tired, we managed to get the street decorations up across the city with the help of volunteers and the Parks department.

We started an hour earlier this year, and it did help avoid traffic for the most part. I was almost creamed by a gentleman in a Geo Metro. There were cones across the street and I was wearing a reflective vest. There was a solid 2 blocks of clear visibility between him and my position, but he still came halfway through the intersection. Once he stopped, he looked at me kind of confused, and made the turn to the cross street.

I was actually out of the way once he was bearing-down on me within 1/2 of a block. I sure wasn’t going to try to stop him, though one could argue anyone can stop those little tin cans. 🙂

35 degrees and all, it seemed to go faster than the previous years.
