Saturday, January 19, 2013

Sunny, blue sky with large clouds, wind gusting from the west. Paths wet. Hundreds of people on the ice near the band shell, some flying kites; food tables being taken down; PA system on the ice powered by generator, occasionally pumping out music and announcements. Line waiting for long wagon drawn by two large horses. Large red-and-white striped tent on the ice near the band shell vanishes and reappears pressed by the wind against trees along the eastern shore. Three fire trucks arrive near the band shell; another near the rose garden, where firemen pull the tent down from the trees. Temperature falling rapidly, about ten degrees per hour.
