This scene at the corner of Lawndale and Cornwalis Drive-- between Kirkwood and Irving Park neighborhoods-- shows a house with holiday spirit. Inflatables greet you from all directions. Santa Grande is looking toward downtown Greensboro. The polar bear and el pequeño Santa, on the left, are in front of one of Greensboro's famous Lustron homes (see, also, here and here). Our city seems very decorated for the season. In addition to the ubiquitous inflatables, the light balls of Sunset Hills have spread to many neighborhoods across the city.
Well, the region is anticipating inclement weather. Last night, most Greensboro-ians went to the grocery store and were huddled at home staying out of the 24 degree weather, checking the weather updates; that is except for families with teen daughters. They were out enjoying the Justin Bieber concert! Facebook updates from cell phones were rolling in by the minute ("We're here! He's great! We love you Justin Bieber."). As for us, we were at corporate headquarters trying to figure out what photos to bring your way, in the event we're iced in! Let's hope those four-story tall oak trees (like the one between Santa and Grinch) weather the storm!
