The Ides Of December Shines Blue & Warm In Wichita Falls

After a couple days of windy wet freezing gray gloom, on this Ides of December Saturday, blue sky and relatively warm air has returned to my North Texas location on the planet.

And so I was able to take my handlebars on a roll around town.

Eventually I arrived at the somewhat abandoned MSU where, as you see here, the annual re-appearance of the Wichita Falls Public Mass Transit Trams has occurred, taking up parking positions on a lot at the north end of the campus.

These five trams wait til dark to do their transiting, loaded with sightseers seeking to see the Christmas light sights one sees in the Wichita Falls version of Beverly Hills neighborhood.

These lights are quite a spectacle.

The Wichita Falls Public Mass Transit Christmas Trams are open air, non-heated conveyances. One is allowed to bring a thermos warmed beverage onboard, of the hot chocolate or coffee sort. I assume one could also bring along a more adult warming type beverage if one felt the need, with such subtly secreted in a thermos type device.

Coats, hats, gloves and blankets are likely also a good idea...
