Can I just tell you that Savannah GA totally shuts down for St. Patrick's Day??? It is the crazinest thing I have ever heard of. When I say shuts down, I mean everywhere is a ghost town except downtown Savannah where the parade is. The schools are closed, every local business is closed, and the colleges are closed (where Willy works). Medical facilities are the only places not closed....which includes me. People still need physical therapy on St. Patty's Day. So, needless to say, Willy is downtown at the parade with all of our friends and I am at work. I'm not too fond of getting up at 6am to be downtown at 7am with thousands of people so I'm okay with being at work for a few hours. I will probably head down there after the parade is over around lunch time. Willy just called and said that his friends were down there at 5am and they have a great spot on one of the squares downtown. Wow! Now, thats dedication.
Here are a few pictures of the previous years in Savannah. Did I mention we dye the Savannah River Green and even our newspaper is GREEN. And, I mean the entire paper is green! It is all kind of fun!
Happy St. Patty's Day to everyone!
