Sugar Coated Winter Morning February 2011
Believe it or not, this wild and wooly scene is right in the heart of Elmira Heights. If you have a bike, you probably already know it.
Every summer, those of us who live on the edge of the city and the town look forward to a changeable display. Some years the seasonal storms pre-empt the show. So far, so good.It's just a little touch, really. But it's what makes local living so nice.
February 15, 2007. 7:50 AM Easter Daylight Time. -6 degrees F. -20 degrees C. Only 4 wheel drive plied the streets last night. The city is clogged with parked cars, including ours. The plows made impenetrable barriers of ice and snow in front of every driveway. Last night the city threatened to tow the cars, even as they made it impossible to park them properly.
A lovely restoration project is nearly completed. Some very concerned citizens began an ambitious project to bring a new carousel to Elmira. It's almost done. What's left is going slowly, as each animal is being "adopted" by individuals and/or groups interested in Eldridge Park.
