Just a week or two ago, Greensboro was basking in the glory of sunny days. As a matter of fact, we were experiencing below average precipitation. We seem to have made up for it in the last week. It is not even as much an issue with the sogginess of everything as it is that people tend to stay inside during rain. Downtown loves its pedestrians!
The above photo is of Hamburger Square on the corner of South Elm Street and McGee Streets. It has been a happening part of town for a very long time. The nickname comes from the time when there were hamburger/hot dog establishments on all four corners. During World War 1, soldiers waited here for troop trains. We imagine they ate their share of hamburgers and hot dogs while waiting. Interestingly, there was a traffic circle here until the the 1960's.* The old buildings, featured above, are in better shape than ever. Our town is a great one for filming movies that evoke yesteryear. Happy Saturday. Stay dry and look on the bright side. Life is good, even when we are wet!
