Photos of the New Melrose Clinic, Snowmen, and Downtown Sauk Centre

Wednesday, January 6, 2010. Maybe you're in this position, too: you've finally gotten a vehicle excavated from December's snowfall. Now you've heard that there's a winter weather advisory out, just west of here: more snow is on the way.

Before getting back to Sauk Centre: the clinic in Melrose has been in their new quarters for a while now.

Inside the new Melrose clinic: reception area. January 5, 2010.

I don't think a clinic waiting area can ever be really 'cozy' - but this is close. January 5, 2010.

Back to Sauk Centre.

Nice old-fashioned-looking streetlamps downtown - and a contrail. January 5, 2010.

Downtown Sauk Centre: I'm enjoying the holiday decorations while I can. They'll be down soon. January 5, 2010.

A foot-and-a-half of snow coming down in less than a week can be inconvenient, even awkward, to deal with. On the other hand, it provides the raw material for really big snowmen: and some folks in town took advantage of the situation.

That snowman's well over life-size. And, festively wearing a wreath. January 1,2010.

A snowman family. That's no trick of perspective: they really are tall. January 5, 2010.

A snow fort. Someone arranged to get a generous dollop of snow pushed up on their front yard. The kids must be having a great time. January 5, 2010.

I see in the paper that last summer Dunham Express moved into the industrial park building that Advanced Lighting had used. Durham Express is a Wisconsin-based courier service.

This week's article was mostly about a tax abatement Durham Express got. Can't say I'm sorry to see another business in town. Even if they don't employ a lot of folks, the people who work there - and pass through - will drink coffee downtown, or somewhere nearby, probably buy groceries and gasoline from time to time.
