The weather was very cooperative today. The forecast for the next seven days is snow flurries, snow showers and colder temperatures. Today was cloudy with a large mass of dark clouds to the East. But no rain or snow. The temperature was dropping as we stood there. It was not breezy when we started at 4:30 p.m., and about 44 degrees. By 5:30 p.m., it was down to 35 degrees and a fresh wind off the lake.
We had six people show up and stand on the corner. One older gentleman, Al, who had started with us way back last january, came by today. I hadn't seen him in a while. He reported that he had a mild stroke and was recovering. He wasn't aware that we were still doing the Peace Vigil.
Many horn honks and waves. Peace signs were flashed and thumbs up signs were seen. No one saw anyone give us the finger or thumbs down. But then again, it was nearly dark when we started the vigil, and dark as night when we finished. I will work on some sort of lighting. I'm thinking of the battery powered peace sign necklaces. Those will go nicely with the decorated holiday tree that the Post Office has set up on the corner, right behind us.
I haven't had anyone comment in a while here. I guess I know that I have support for our efforts. Must not be any new readers.
Peace to All.
