We've got a total of about 20" here in Wellsville.

10:15am in Wellsville - at least a foot, possibly closer to foot and a half. My stepdad hasn't measured in a few hours.

Columbia stations are calling for at least 5" or more by the end of it all for where I am.

I live straight north of Hermann in the north part of Mont. County. *sigh* I am so not happy. I'm done with winter.

Hmmm. I wonder if they just haven't fully updated that calendar page yet; I did notice that November and December don't have the Old Time Christmas icons on the days, whereas the rest of the months of the season have their proper icons.

I'm gonna guess that pdf is probably the correct schedule and the webpage just hasn't been fully updated to reflect it.

Woah! I can't believe they have so many days closed in December! What's going on with that?

One of the YouTubers I follow did the Celebrity Car Museum (which is the one at Dick Clark's theater) a couple weeks ago... It looked interesting, but not really my thing; I'm just not much of a car person. But I think people who like cars, especially if they also like movies/TV, would find it rather fun.

Oh, I didn't even think about the Titanic... I should've maybe used a different word for what I was talking about. I view Ripleys, Wonderworks, and the NE "museums" as a different category than, say, Titanic or other places... Just not sure what word to use for them. Maybe "Interactive Eclectic Collections"? lol I dunno.

But, no, I actually do wanna check out the Titanic museum, and the Ralph Foster Museum, and the Toy Museum, and definitely the Harold Bell Wright museum. I just wasn't too clear on how I categorize the various places.

Of the "museums" that Branson has/will have, the only one that is of particular interest to me is Wonderworks; I've watched many walk-throughs of various Ripleys and Wonderworks locations, and I am really excited that Branson is getting a Wonderworks! Not at all interested in Ripleys (although their aquariums are pretty cool) and definitely not National Enquirer.

That image just came across my Tumblr dash last night, and I had to laugh! I knew *immediately* what that image was from.  ;D

I watched a video of Dolly introducing the new tree at Dollywood, and holy cow, am I ever jealous! It's SO beautiful! (I hope I get to experience it in person someday; I am ITCHING to go back to DW now that I've finally been there)

Honestly, as much as I like that Disney enforces full costume, I feel bad for those who can't wear more comfortable shoes, so I'm okay with SDC allowing it. I sympathize with them, as when I worked at Worlds of Fun, even though my booth was run by a different company, we still had to dress for WoF's employee dress code. With having to stand for a full 5-6 hours (we weren't allowed any stools/etc - "if you're sitting you don't look like you're working" even though as an airbrush artist, I'd pretty obviously be working even if I was sitting), it was frustrating that the dress code only allowed "shoes with laces", which meant I couldn't wear my Crocs, which are the only footwear I've been able to wear and not have aching feet and back after being on my feet for several hours.

So, yeah, if SDC allowing employees to wear sneakers means they don't have to deal with sore feet or back? I'm all for it.

Welp, I watched the preview video and wow, I am super excited for next year! Hopefully I'll actually get to go; haven't been to SDC since 2016. I do get to go to Dollywood on Halloween this year, so it'll be cool to see LumiNights and get a taste of what's coming to SDC next year.

Also, I wanna point out on their 2019 page that they mention an "expansion" at Grand Exposition with the "new Woodland Hike." I'm very curious to know what that means!

Actually, I quite like mosques. They feature some very gorgeous architecture. Heck, I even like a lot of the Mormon temple architecture, despite absolutely not being a fan of that particular church (I grew up in an off-shoot that thankfully has progressed with the times and never felt like a cult).

I've driven by several of these "giant crosses" at various times, such as the ones in Texas and New Mexico, and never stopped and had no desire to.  Other than something to see as you drove by, they seemed pointless to me. And there's plenty to see on 65 that it really didn't need this.

Actually, the cross in Groom, Texas, is more than just a cross. We visited back when I was a kid, and they have bronze statues with scriptures that walk you through the whole day of the crucifixion, and then at the back, they have an "empty tomb" and stuff. Even though I'm not religious any more, I do feel like I still appreciate the work that went into the Groom display.

But other than that, well... you and everyone else has pretty much said what I feel. This thing in Branson is really not necessary.
