Today, we're sharing the back side of Fidelity Bank's snowman. From his view in front of the bank, he sees the changing face of Battleground Avenue. Over the last year, several mattress and e-cigarette stores have popped up, and one of each is visible to Frosty. VAPOR is peeking out of the left edge of the photo. VAPOR is housed in what was formerly a Subway sandwich shop. Subway has relocated across the street, closer to Honeybaked Ham, on the lot which had been a Wagoneer's Christmas tree lot for years. SLEEPY'S Mattress is in a new stand alone building on a lot which, for a while housed Buffalo Wings. Buffalo's had moved from the metal-looking building up the street, which had formerly been a gas station and is now a pizza shop.
Are you confused yet? Indeed, it is a lot to keep up with and, if you haven't driven Battleground Avenue for a while, you just might not recognize where you are. The Battleground shuffle is dizzying. From the urban loop on the northern end to Cornwallis Drive, the Battleground construction boom is in full force. Frosty's hands are in the air as he contemplates the changes that will take place on this road between now and when he returns next winter.
As we say goodbye to February, we are confident that not many other than Frosty will be sorry to see the it end.
