Where'd Everyone GO?!

Is it just me, or have you noticed this void of commerce around you too?

This used to be the area's K-Mart.  This parking lot was usually filled with cars, and people would be coming and going at all hours.

Now? Not so much.  In fact, not at all.


This is the Mongolian Grill restaurant in our town.  It's our favorite local restaurant and we go there often -- though less often lately, both due to my injury and to the economy.  It's not unusual to have to wait for a table, even on a weeknight.  

But last night at 7:30, the place was a ghost town:  IMG_1215

How has the changing economy affected things in your town?

Oh yes. The mall was a ghost town tonight. I actually had my choice of a number of great parking spots. Macy's was a ghost town too...on the employee side.

there's a lot of talk about crisis, there's a lot of news reports of big companies going to lay off a lot of people...

but personally I have not noticed the crisis yet.

Restaurants that we go to here are always packed, so I don't know! But it is affecting so many people I know--from job layoffs to slow downs.
