I had big plans. Big plans of great, NYE festive photos. You see, there has been a big event here in Ann Arbor the past few days, ending today with the Winter Classic Hockey game. All the streets downtown were blocked off to traffic last night and there was a huge New Year's Eve block party with a neon dropping puck. We had plans, really we did. A brisk evening walk followed by lots of pictures. Did I mention it got very cold? Did I mention it started snowing?
So, the next couple of pictures are from our local newspaper/blog….
Last night was spent wrapped up in a quilt, with cocoa watching the Red Wing/Maple Leaf Alumni game on TV. We still harbored plans of getting to the Winter Classic today. The prices of tickets on Stubhub are plunging - much like the temperature. But….. I don't think fresh croissants and hot coffee are readily available in the Big House.
Besides, here at home, I can work on my Mrs. Billings while I watch the game.
Still, Bill and Gibby played a little Winter Classic in the back yard this morning. Happy New Year from all of us at Minick and Simpson.
