Construction Work, Wind, and O'Reily Auto Parts

Wednesday, October 20, 2010. We're approaching that holiday marathon: Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years - followed by January and February, two months that could use a holiday to break the mid-winter routines. Maybe it's just as well that we've got a couple months to recover in, though.

Monday evening: It looked like a cover was being drawn across the sky. October 18, 2010.

I'm still negotiating with a cold. I want it out of my body, it isn't ready to move.

A weather report on the radio today called this a 'breezy' day. With gusts to around 40 miles an hour. That's a noticeable "breeze."

"Breeze" south of the McDonalds in Sauk Centre. October 20, 2010.

A tip of the hat to sabrinabeans, who said that the new place at South 12th and Fairlane Drive would most likely be an O'Reilly Auto Parts store. (September 26, 2010) They've got a sign up now, letting folks know what's coming. And it looks like they may be hiring.

The corner of South 12th and Fairlane Drive: O'Reilly Auto Parts. "Coming Soon," that is. October 20, 2010.

There's road work - or maybe bridge work - being done where County Road 186 goes over Interstate 94, southeast of town. I didn't get close enough to see which. Or, rather, it was hard to tell from underneath: I noticed activity there while driving back from Melrose on the Interstate.

Upgrade at the sewage treatment plant? October 20, 2010.

Something's happening at the sewage treatment plant, too. That's probably the
upgrade they were discussing at City Hall last October. (It's mentioned on pages 42 and 43 of the PDF file.) As my father used to say, "things take time."
