  •  We live just over a block from the Parade route. (3+ / 0-)

    Last night Karen Grube's Facebook page had 4500 likes.  This afternoon there are already at least 4500 people on our block with their folding chairs and their stepladders and their umbrellas, waiting for I think midnight when they are allowed to surge forward off the sidewalk to the Blue Line of Closeness to the actual parade.  

    The Goodyear blimp is lurking.  The Midwesterners have brought their giant motor homes and are trying to park them.  News helicopters are trying to avoid collisions with the blimp.  Cops are actually smiling, well mostly it's the rent-a-cops who are smiling.  The markets are all FULL of out-of-towners, some of whom have never seen a Trader Joe's before.

    In fact, it's exactly the way it is every year.
