A few determined Christmas shoppers have been walking around downtown today with bags from Ulman’s Jewelry and the few other retail shops that are open. Many of the restaurants are open. One of them, University Cafe, was the site of an impromptu dance party out in William Street last night when local band Elby Brass decided to go play in the snow (see the video here).
But there are also plenty of winter sports going on downtown today. Cross-country skiiers have been seen on William Street, and a pickup truck towed a snowboarder down Winchester Street.
Other recreational pursuits are also in high gear. Local resident Andrew H. Deci (who took the photo below) found a very picked-through beer shelf when he went out for groceries at Wegman’s.
