Fortunately I’m remembering to turn the heat on each night. So no long underwear needed during the nights under the blankets.
Going out and about is a different story though. We’re seeing 30’s during the evenings, and if you’re looking to roam around after sunset you might find things a bit nippy.
Saturday evening Sadira and I planned to meet up downtown for the lighting of the courthouse. It’s a big event around here, and apparently Prescott is Arizona’s “Christmas City.” Ah, an official Christmas City eh? The lighting must be something to behold.
I finished up at the “tie over job” headed home and bundled up. Cold was on order for the evening! And it was extremely cold. What a way to celebrate leaving the old behind and starting up with the new!
My friends Caitlin and Tony also decided to pop down for the lighting. Unfortunately they missed the official lighting, but they did arrive shortly after. We walked the town, enjoyed the light display, and finally decided to dine over at the St. Michael’s Hotel (they have “Rich Safe” food there). A very pleasant evening, even if we all were a little chilled.
Tonight I’ll be breaking out the long underwear once more. See, there were way too many people on the square Saturday night. No way I could setup the tripod, try a few HDRs, etc. Now that the square is lit though I thought it would be really cool to try an HDR or two of Arizona’s Christmas City!
If you’re in the area and want to go shooting, pop down to the square around 9:15 tonight. That’s when I’ll be there. Make sure you bundle up though, it’s going to be cold again!
