Shoveling Central Square For Richardson

Bill Richardson will be in town today, speaking in the town square, which is a small park area in the middle of town on a large rotary.

Normally the square can accommodate hundreds of people -- it's the place where bands play during the summer. If you want to go hear a concert on the square you get a blanket, bring a lunch and sit or stand right there on the grass.

Problem is it's January 6, and there's a foot and a half of snow on the square. So I got curious as to how they were going to pull this off.

The answer is that they came, they dug, and they conquered. It's pretty inspiring. Check it out in the video below.

Incidentally, I've known Jamie Judd (the first person interviewed) since she worked for Molly Kelly in 2006. She's a hell of a field director -- just the kind that can get 15+ volunteers to shovel out the town square on a Saturday night. Props to her.
