    I am now certain I picked the right city, because I just learned the Kansas City Royals have a "Christmas Eve in July" day:

    It's that day today! They just showed someone with a Santa hat in the stands!

    But I didn't go to the game. Not in the mood. Just watching it on TV.

      Several months ago I posted the Christmas Time in Kansas City video I made over the Holidays.

      I had so much fun making it I decided I'd also make one for spring, summer and fall. I just finished the spring one today (been working on it since March). Here it is! It's 19-1/2 minutes, so grab a cup of coffee before you watch this one. It's almost a mini-movie!

      First part (about 2-1/2 minutes) is an introductory and Easter segment
      Second part is a segment showing spring-y looking scenes in early April, a little over 2 minutes. Set to some music I sang waaay back in high school choir and which I remembered all these years.
      Third part is about five minutes - a visit to the zoo! The scene with the lions (this one particular lion, to be precise) is the best.
      Last part is almost 10 minutes long and is a tour of downtown Kansas City, set to Beethoven's "Spring" violin sonata.


















      Update! I have made 2 more videos, if anyone is bored and has some time to kill.

      In addition to the Christmas and spring videos above, I've made a summer and autumn one as well.

      • And BTW, my first two winters here have been disappointing snow-wise! So far this winter we've had 4 days of snow totaling 4 inches. I think my old home in Everett might even be doing better this winter.

        That said, it looks like my timing is just bad. KC gets snowfall totals of 20+ inches every few years, which basically NEVER happens around Seattle.

        • So you cursed them into getting little snow.

          • I can tell I've gotten acclimated to the summers here because I now consider highs in the low 80's to be cool weather.
