Roundup: Main Street, Weather, Longshore, More

It started out as a white Christmas. By the end of the day, rain and 50-degree weather had washed most of the snow away.

All that remains are brown, crusty mounds like the ones below, at the Imperial Avenue parking lot.

The forecast is for temperatures in the high 40s today, 30s tomorrow and Wednesday, 40s and 50s the rest of the week and weekend.

Rain is predicted for New Year’s Eve. No big deal — you weren’t going out anyway, were you?

Was it a line for COVID testing — or the vaccine?

Perhaps PlayStation 5?

Nope, nope and nope.

This was the post-Christmas line outside Lululemon yesterday.

Jo Shields reports: “People waiting say it’s just social distancing, combined with shopping appointments and a limited number allowed in the store. Sounds like a really responsible company policy. Maybe even smart for sales.

“And although there were complaints about being cold, everyone was good natured and patient. And wearing masks.”

Pam Kesselman jokes: “Someone left a Big Bertha (large driver) in the 9th hole sand trap at Longshore. Please claim before it disappears.”

And finally … we catch up with one more recently deceased musician.

Chad Stuart died last week of pneumonia. He was 79.

One-half of Chad & Jeremy — often confused with the longer-lived, more successful, equally cute British duo, one of whom also wore glasses — Chad & Jeremy made a brief career out of summer-themed songs.

And there’s this tidbit from Stuart’s New York Times obituary: describing Stuart’s solo career after the pair broke up: “At one point he opened for the hard-rock band Mountain in a bowling alley in Hartford, Conn.” Yesterday’s Roundup paid tribute to Mountain founder Leslie West, who died just 3 days after Chad Stuart.

  1. If you look closely at the photo of the line on Main Street- the storefront window to the left is the “7 for All Mankind” store. Please notice the cool tree they fashioned out of bluejean scraps- another inside the store as well. They sell great jeans, etc. Nice, friendly shop with great service.
