In a Norwich minute

Abandoned shopping cart numbers are surprisingly low at the moment. Not sure what’s going on – maybe they melted away with all the snow. Or maybe it’s like Groundhogs Day and “Silver Street Sam” the shopping cart saw his shadow, got scared and went back to P&C’s return rack to hide-out for six more weeks.

Speaking of melting snow…
The onset spring certainly tells a tail.
With the nice weather we’ve been having came a winter’s worth of preserved cigarette butts, dog poop and rotting garbage that’s been released from a prison of snow and ice. Aside from being a little symbols of persistence and survival, these spring lovelies are nice accent of the local culture.

Condolences to the family of Terry Periard.
