Last night we traveled 20 miles south to the little town of Cottage Grove to visit an outdoor light display. It is sponsored by a golf resort and while the resort has always put up lights, this year they added a lot more and there were arguably 750,000 lights at the outdoor event.
We almost didn't go--it was pouring down rain at 4:30 and then it kind of let up at 4:45 when we planned to leave. However, driving south, it let up even more and we spent an hour walking through the lights without a drop of rain. And it started up again about five minutes after we started heading home.
It was very cool.
