Happy St. Patrick’s Day, but I won’t parade around this year

Syracuse’s version.

Today’s the day to celebrate all things Irish. And green.

They got together for the annual St. Patrick’s Parade in downtown Syracuse last Saturday.

My dear wife Karen and I did not attend this year.

Our explanation.

Too cold.

Our local ABC affiliate, WSYR-9, broadcast three hours of the parade, as per custom. They started at noon with a weather shot from outside their East Syracuse studio.

Looking crisp.

The hardy folks marching up and lined along South Salina Street looked … cold. Very.

Police, too.

At least they appeared dressed for success in battling the 15ºF real temperature and zero wind-chill.

I felt right at home watching on the living room flat screen.
