When the Town is Closed

It's been pretty weird getting back here in the middle of spring break. Since the town is so heavily populated by college students (25,000 out of about 45,000 total) it's like a bizarre semi-ghost town. Court Street, the main center of activity on this side of town, is not only largely empty; it's actually mostly closed. That's right, the exodus for spring break is so big in this community that businesses actually shut down for the week. It just feels strange.
