It's afternoon on Christmas day. The roads were incredibly quiet so I was compelled to ride. The temperature started off in the low 70's but the wind picked up a little and it felt like it was getting colder mid-ride. It was almost too quiet.
An almost car-free Montgomery Street heading north from I-30 to the Museum District.
There's lots of construction taking place at the Fort Worth Museum of Science.
Nice brightly colored sculpture on the lawn in front of the Kimbell Art Museum.
Me and my wife are originally from McAllen which is way down on the southern tip of Texas. Eating tamales for Christmas has always been a tradition for our families. Every year my wife's parents will spend Christmas with us and they bring 10-12 dozen tamales with them. We'll feast on these for days. My wife's parents couldn't make it this year so we ended up ordering a few dozen from La Familia. They were very good but not quite as good as my in-laws' tamales.
New business and construction is popping up everywhere in Fort Worth. I think Fort Worth is faring better than most places during this economic downturn.
Montgomery Plaza. This was the headquarters for Montgomery Wards. This building was vacant for many years but has been converted to business and office space on the street level with lofts on the upper floors.
This place was a madhouse yesterday. All quiet now.
