December 21st At Cedar Park

There always has been something, somewhat ominous about the 21st of December. If not the mysterious pagan celebration of the winter solstice at Stonehedge, it is the shortest, or darkest day of the year. Notable heavies, including Joseph Stalin. were born on this day. If all that isn't enough, this year was anticipated as the Mayan Apocalypse. Although we appear to have dodged the doomsday bullet, Allentown's Cedar Park experienced significant flooding.

Great shot. I'm sure you saw that on the other side of the Ott Street bridge, flooding was even more intense. You would be up to your spandex in no time if you tried to ride a bike on the pathways that day! I guess scuba diving would have been the sport for that day in the park.

Great photography, MM! The Bushkill Creek was a raging torrent here in NC, but I neglected to get a shot.

Wish I could have been standing right behind you when you snapped this photo, Mike, although that could have ended up being somewhat ominous too.

Park Attendee, i wish the school administrators had read Lehigh Valley Somebody blog before they agreed to listen to angie villa's thoughts on education. ironic, because that same week they had someone from the attorney general's office give a workshop on cyberbullying. hopefully, the attorney general will someday catch up with Somebody.

Lehigh Valley Somebody is a blog operated by Bill and Angie Villa. Angie links to her Art and Education Blog from Somebody, but doesn't link back to Somebody from the education blog. Somebody contains endless rants, insults and threats against various local lawyers, judges, ministers, professors, deans, and so on. here is a recent comment from their current post, bragging about their cyberstalking.
