The city of Elkhart has it's mascot "Elk" painted and all over town. There are 30 painted Elk in total. They were painted and auctioned off to local businesses. I am suspicious about that claim because the one in the park is painted with grass and flowers. The one infront of the theatre has on a tuxedo and is wearing a flower on his lapel. On his side are tickets to the show.
Today was a beautiful day to walk to a local restaurant for lunch. I needed to take advantage of the good weather before the next round of snow came in. Lake effect snow is a real reality here. There is winter weather going through Minnesota that as it comes across the great lakes will strengthen and slow down. The snow is expected to begin late Thursday and not stop until Saturday morning.
