Fremont in the Snow

By master · December 21st, 2008 · No Comments

Even though the Fremont Market shut down today due to the inclement weather, residents and visitors were still walking around downtown Fremont. The snow continued to fall this morning, adding a new layer of fluff over the icy crust that formed on the snow last night, and allowing a few folks to ski right past the Red Door.

Only a few businesses weren’t open- Flying Apron, El Camino, Blue C, and Yak’s; Many, were still operating, some with a skeleton crew, like Cold Stone Creamery which was only available for cake pickup, and Dad Watson’s, which was opening at bit later than usual at 1 p.m. Fremont Place Books was open, nearly all the coffee shops downtown were busy. Frame Up Studios, Willow and Bloom were also open, as were Silence-Heart-Nest and The Red Door. The PCC was bustling with customers stocking up on supplies and stopping in for a warm meal. Or, in one case, showing kids how to knock snow shelves down with snowballs:

Some cheerful artist had made smiley faces in the snow on a number of the cars parked along Fremont Ave., and a number of snowmen could be seen throughout downtown Fremont.

Last, but not least, a few Fremonsters braved the snow to sip their lattes down at Peet’s:
