I love the way Mother Nature adorns everything. The snow and icicles are all the winter embelishments I need. However, the city of Maple Ridge feels other wise. Year after year, they bring out the same old decorations. They have been using them for so many years, it sure says something about recycling and re-using! Also these old decorations are now such a familiar winter display, that they have attatchd themselves to the Maple Ridge traditions. If there were to be a suggestion of new decorations, the town would probably be in an uproar! With all things 70's back in vouge, one might even say that Maple Ridge has RETRO decorations! Hey! What do you know.... We are soooo groovy! You may have seen these decorations in several movies. Several Christmas films have been shot along our main street (224th St.). Last summer, the decorations were up in July and fake snow was sprayed on everything!
Today it is snowing again. It is expected to fall thoughout the night but should warm up and may rain by Friday! Soon natures white blanket will turn to brown , slopppy, slush!
