SoCo prepares for Winter

The sidewalk traffic is extra light with far less people out for an evening stroll, these days.  Early nights, chilly weather and football games seem to be keeping most people at home after work.  Combined with the reality of our economic downturn, even the resilient town of Austin is feeling a hit now.  Especially as we head into winter.  Not that the weather is ever too cold to really complain about, but rather most Texans get spoiled on warm sunshine.

Seven oclock on SoCo, not much going on!

Now that fall is here, the lure of a warm home with television and internet connection is hard to pass up, for many Austinites.  Most of the streets and sidewalks drain after rush hour, only feeling a burst in traffic for the weekend.  The crowd is always fickle, and can be hard to predict.  Surely there are still a few solid days of business for SoCo left before the dead of Texas winter.
