I took a quick spin through Eastside Cemetery today. It’s not too far from my house and has some old tombstones in it. I loved the undisturbed snow on these benches.
And, as always when it snows in Hutchinson, people let their kids sled on the embankment of the overpass at K61 and Avenue A. This seems incredibly dangerous to me, but I guess it falls into the category of “my parents let me do it and I’m gonna let my kids do it.” In fact, it’s not a matter of “letting” the kids – the adults are driving the kids there. They park along the road (a somewhat major artery), then walk up the hill and hurl down it on plastic disks toward the traffic that is coming down the ramp and can’t see them. Like I said – it doesn’t seem like a great idea to me – but it seems to work.
And, I’ll admit… there’s a part of me that wants to do it!
