Labor Day Weekend, 2012

Sunday, September 2, 2012: Labor Day weekend. It's the last (unofficial) summer weekend. Folks are visiting family, getting in a last weekend at 'the lake,' or - in my case - grilling burgers.

On a not-so-cheerful note, I've heard that a local grocery is having trouble getting some brands of apples: another result of this year's drought. Still, things could be worse. A lot worse.

Sauk Centre's talking traffic signal isn't new, but I hadn't heard it until yesterday. Street work on South 4th is progressing, and Sauk Hop is now Nic's Diner.

Pipes - culverts, I suppose they should be called - at the east end of South 4th. September 1, 2012.

Pieces waiting to be placed: the east end of South 4th, again. September 1, 2012.

An old Volkswagen 'bug,' with personality, on Sinclair Lewis Avenue, downtown. September 1, 2012.

Sinclair Lewis Avenue and Main: and Sauk Centre's talking traffic signal. September 1, 2012.

It told me to wait, and later to get going. September 1, 2012.

That countdown is a nice feature: and encourages promptness in crossing. September 1, 2012.

Nic's Diner: looks a great deal like the Sauk Hop. I'll want to learn more about the place. September 1, 2012.

So far, this Labor Day weekend has looked like a picture postcard: nearly-clear sky, with occasional artistically-placed cirrus clouds.
