Well it's that time of year folks. You know what I mean.
In celebration of that time of year I thought I'd do a special edition of a USA Sprawl Festival.
Not only will you get pictures of sprawl, you'll get pictures of sprawl in the snow!!
Well, mostly in the snow.
But before we show some snow we have to know that Spring Training is only 3 months away!
At least the Bengals are busy this time of year. Though not for this picture.
But before we get to the sprawl, I just couldn't resist this beauty . . .
And this one, too. This looks like "the hood."
we get on with the sprawl . . .
This one's for bgwah. Notice the trees planted in the middle of the cul-de-sac. Seattle and Detroit have company.
people can walk to their shopping.
Close-up of some typical houses.
There was a HUGE industrial park a ways north of the city. This was just a slice of it.
You can see the tracks of sleds on the school grounds.
Christmas shoppers busy at the mall.
And when the shoppers get home, it all goes here.
More industry and business.
Not many golfers in the snow, I would guess. Though ya never know.
Quaint. A railroad station, a little business district, a cute little church and some cute houses. Looks like a Thomas Kinkade painting!
I'm guessing that's a fake-old building in the middle, not a real one.
Another close-up of some houses.
Building new stuff in the snow.
Townhouses and apartments. The pool looks frozen.
Quaint church in a quaint neighborhood. Another Thomas Kinkade painting.
Let's go ice skating! Make sure the ice is thick-enough, first.
About as average as you can get.
An average shopping center in an average neighborhood.
I got bored of averageness and decided to stick in this non-sprawl beauty here.
I've been working on the railroad, all me live-long day . . .
Mmmmm . . . sprawl? Or not sprawl?
And yet another break from the spraw. Sorry I just couldn't resist these interludes.
Back to the sprawl again . . .
Lots of pretty snow.
I bet no one's playing tennis in those courts on the right.
A far-away view of some burbs in the (pretty) far north metro.
Winter Wonderland! With a quaint chuch in the corner.
Life in a cozy cul-de-sac. Sorry bgwah, no trees in the middle this time.
Some office campus, I think. Or maybe a community college?
. . .little pink houses for you and me . . .
Average suburban apartments.
Some folks don't have far to go for their Christmas shopping.
New stuff. With more on the way.
Another quaint church in a quaint (sort-of) neighborhood.
Ditto. Except this time the church is modern.
