Today's photo was taken at the 300 block of South Elm Street. The couple in the above photo is walking past Design Archives, across the street from Natty Greene's. They seem to be enjoying their leisurely stroll and taking advantage of the time between rain showers.
There is so much happening in Greensboro today for our city's 38th Fun Fourth celebration. Let's hope that all goes well for the events. Organizers are anticipating an attendance of 90,000; that's quite a crowd. For those who don't like the huge crowds, many of our neighborhoods, especially Kirkwood, have great gatherings. Whether you want a grand celebration or just a chance to walk hand-in-hand, like the couple above, we hope you have a happy and safe Fourth... a little reprieve from the daily rain would help, too.
Here's a little walk back in history.... According to Thomas Jefferson's weather log, on July 4th, 1776, the temperature in Philadelphia didn't get gotter than 76 degrees on the day the Declaration of Independence was being signed. Can you believe we have weather data from 237 years ago? What could we document today in Greensboro that would be of interest two centuries from now? Let us know and we'll try to get out and photograph it!
