It’s S..S..S..S..Snowing! And, Here are S..S..S..Some Things to Think About While It’s Coming Down.

So, we finally are getting some snow in Downtown. Cold to follow. Just brings to mind a few other things, all starting with the letter “S” that are at least as fun as watching Downtown turn into a frozen paradise. Station Lights.
