@WedgeLIVE image description: skip traffic is the most important part of this photo obviously. skip's wearing cuffed black jeans and black shirtsleeves today for this formal occasion. practical black sneakers with white laces, because skip is a multimodal commuter.
Much bigger deal for Eau Claire. Fun festivities with food and goodie bags!
Like many American cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul had a streetcar system that served these “Twin Cities” from the late 1800s until the system was mothballed in 1954. Emily Shepard just posted an article about what it was like, through the lens of her grandmother’s memories & some historical photos: https://streets.mn/2022/12/01/living-in-a-streetcar-city/

This is also partly me trying out iOS (I have a backup phone that’s now iOS.)
DON’T FORGET: “Elon Musk admitted to his biographer that the reason the #Hyperloop was announced—even tho he had no intention of pursuing it—was to try to disrupt the California high-speed rail project to get in the way of that actually succeeding.” — @parismarx @Gizmodo
