Thanks to @SuddsyMaggie for sharing this picture of the Black Hole Sun from Thursday afternoon in Volunteer Park. Our year is ending with clear — very cold — sunny days. More of the same is forecast into next week. We’ve seen crisp Januaries around here before — CHS is certain of it because it feels like it was January 2010 only yesterday. So, sunny or no, wear your hat, put on your mittens and grab a scarf. It’s a good time to put all those accessories to real, purposeful use.
Looking for something to do on the Hill New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day? Here’s our 2011 roster of NYE free/cheap/interesting happenings and some hangover-battling first-day-of-2011 fun, too.
