The road goes on forever
Our friend Annie said let's go see Christmas lights in Alta Loma. No adjective could have described what was waiting for us. Traffic slowed for no perceptible reason. Eventually we noticed families with kids parking on side streets and walking in the same direction we were driving. Houses along the street were lit up with larger and larger displays. The police barricading the street and directing traffic was the give-a-way. Glancing down side streets I saw a wonderland of lights. Every neighbor seemed to try to out-do the guy next to him. It was sensory overload. There must have been 5000 or more people walking, taking pictures, talking and taking pictures for each other. It was a wonderful time. Pat and I even got our picture taken with the Grinch.
