Took a pic the other day of this snowman.. it's the only kind we have here now and he is pretty lonely. There is a promise of some light snow over the next few days, but nothing that would make a nice partner for him.
Those greens are real. The city provides real garland every year. It's the city that has our county buildings so they have money there to use for decoration. This cold weather will make the garland stick around for quite awhile. It takes them a long time to get the whole city decorated no wonder they wait until middle of January to take them all down.
