It’s Woodward Dream Cruise weekend for the fifteenth time, and Dave is here to
drag me out and go see it with me. Due to the recent well-documented problems in the auto industry, there are fewer corporate-sponsored events this year, so in a way the cruise is getting back to its roots. People have been out with their classic cars all week, already, so tonight and tomorrow will be car-azy.
It’s also the 100th anniversary of the paving of Woodward Avenue — or at least, the first mile of asphalt pavement, which was the first such pavement anywhere. We saw a news report on the festivities, which took place just north of Highland Park. Sadly, it was an underattended event, but there were Model T’s and the like, at least.
The downside this year is, the high temperatures are predicted to be around 90 degrees all weekend, with humidity building, and lots of sunshine. Of all the times for our cold summer to ease, it had to be this weekend, huh?
