Signs of the times, at CVS: The bad news …
… and the good:

It’s been (knock wood) a very snow-free winter.
That was not the case back in the day.
I’m not sure what year the photo above was taken. Carriages had already been replaced by automobiles. But on a day like that one, it was nice to have a horse on hand.
I don’t know the year of this one one either. But believe it or not, Greenberg’s was luckier this day than a few decades later.
In the 1960s, heavy snow collapsed the roof of the Main Street “department store.”
It never recovered, and closed shortly thereafter.

Today’s rain was not particularly heavy. The wind was not especially strong. But it was enough to cause these scenes down at Compo Beach.
