...this is how downtown looks in my fair city. Crews had an early start this year and, apparently, a surplus of strands. There are more twinklers on those trees than I can ever remember. My house, on the other hand, is still sans holiday decor. I just haven't mustered the mood, so far, to deck the halls. Maybe I'm short on cheer. Or, maybe I remember all-too well this horrifying scenario from years ago.
