The City of Alliance posted a photo of a local landmark today on Facebook:
When I went to the Sallows Military Museum for my Wednesday afternoon volunteer activity this week, we’d just had a springtime snowstorm. In the meantime, the Memorial Day preparations in the Central Park went on on schedule. Hence a fountain operating in a snowy scene!
That doesn’t come close to another anomalous moment further north. The city swimming pool is filled, in preparation for the first day of swimming, which most likely won’t be Memorial Day, the traditional first day of swimming.
The building in the back is the Jean R.A. Thomas Bathhouse, which was named for my mother, who taught Red Cross swimming in this town for 60 years.
The nickname for the pool is “Big Blue Bay”, perhaps more appropriately than ever this cold May!
