As Windstorm Jr. rolled through town last night, sending more power lines sprawling into the streets and killing electricity for almost 40,000 people, it tried to pick on our very own Museum Plaza. The fierce wind gusts tore loose one of the colorful Museum Plaza banners on Main Street, but the building isn’t going anywhere. The yellow sheet was quickly reattached today with few people the wiser, except for Broken Sidewalk readers, of course.
This is near the same spot that the banner mishap happened last December. Could Windstorm Jr. be trying to send us a message, perhaps? That Museum Plaza must weather the “storm” but will be around on fairer days? At least the Museum Plaza folks care enough about the project to continue to bury power lines and keep the banners tidy. If only a few on Metro Council could be more optimistic.
