Now that the winter weather from Wednesday and Thursday has moved out of the area, the digging out has begun.
Today, for the first time in almost a week the temperature was forecast to be above the freezing mark and I thought I would take a walk outside. Thanks to the snow removal people the sidewalks in the condo development are completely clear, but I forgot that not everything would be. Once I got outside of the development most of the sidewalks still had a deep layer of snow on them. The snow that had been removed from the driving lanes of the streets was piled up on the curbs. That meant that even walking along the edge would not be safe, so I reluctantly headed to the mall.
I guess everyone was feeling the same need to get out than I had. There were more people in the mall than normal, but it was still possible to keep a good social distance. With all the people, the background music was harder to hear than usual, but I caught snippets of a little ABBA, a little Bruno Mars, and some Lady Gaga. And then this.
I have never heard a children's song coming over the loudspeakers of any public place. Judging by the non-reactions of the people around me I don't think anyone else noticed. Were they not paying attention, or did they just not care?
