PADUCAH, KY –  The first snowfall in Paducah happened on January 12, 2018. There was a layer of ice covered with snow so everyone was being extra cautious driving nice and slow.

The city did a great job keeping the roads clear downtown as you can see in the photos. Even though, many businesses were closed and some opened but closed early that day. The 24-hour McDonald’s on Hinkleville Road was closed when I drove by it around 5:30 pm as well.

The good news was that Dry Ground Brewery announced earlier that day that they would not be closing since people still drink beer when it snows. That one put a smile of my face. Loved it!

The photos below were taken on January 12, 2018 around 5:15 PM in downtown Paducah with a temp around 19 degrees.

PADUCAH, KY – The Paducah City Commission voted 4-1 passing a Fairness Ordinance on Jan. 9, 2018 that will focus on age, gender identity and sexual orientation complaints. The complaints will be handled by Paducah’s Human Rights Commission that was already in place.

it was standing room only at City Hall with people out in the hallways either waiting to be called to voice their thoughts at the podium or to hear the outcome of the historic vote.

Mayor Brandi Harless was at the helm of this Fairness Ordinance and worked overtime to help pass this amendment. She is a trailblazer – to say the least – and has done a remarkable job since voted in by the people of Paducah in November 2016.  And with this historic endeavor we can add another A+ to her already impressive 5.0 GPA as Mayor.

The new amendment represents fairness, equality and nondiscrimination. Paducah is a wonderful town but got a little better on that particular night. Read details from source at paducahky.gov.

TUNICA, MS – Tunica Main Street was beautifully decorated with Christmas lights again this year in the Historic Downtown section of Tunica, MS.

While setting up I met a nice gentleman on the sidewalk that reminded me of my late cousin Charlie that we all love so dearly. That was my special moment of the night along with visiting the memorial.

Tunica was founded in 1884. According to a chart on Google, in 2016 there was 968 people living in Tunica.

It’s a wonderful small town with all the eateries, markets and services that big cities provide. But this one adds a splash of good ol’ Southern Hospitality that may keep you coming back for more.

Tunica is known for its many Casino Hotels that you can book for sometimes under $50. If you are ever in the area and like small towns, you may want to add this little gem to your bucket list.

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Christmas lights wrapped around palm trees and light posts help brighten Canal Street even more during the holiday season in the the heart of downtown New Orleans.

There are over 1 million lights that glow all night long on Canal Street that run from the Mississippi River to Elk Place.

Canal Street is the widest street in downtown New Orleans. Its straight and runs the length of the city with streetcars running in the middle. The streetcars are popular and used by 1000s of people daily to get around the city.

And William, it was wonderful meeting you briefly and talking camera-shop. It’s always exciting to meet other photographers on the streets of New Orleans. People come from all over the world to photograph this wonderful city. And like New York, it never sleeps.
