excess parking

Happy Buy Nothing Day, everyone!

Our neighborhood shopping center has an enormous parking lot that sits mostly empty most of the time. Maybe they built it for holiday shopping? How did it look today for #blackfridayparking?

looks full but there are plenty of spots available

see, lots of parking

and this side is almost completely empty.

There’s even a Christmas tree lot taking up tens of parking spaces, and still no shortage of parking. At least it’s an acknowledgement of the excess parking.

Is this Christmas tree lot a good use of space? I suppose it could be. It sure would be nice if there were a farm stand there the other 11 months of the year.

Verdict: what a waste of money, space, and impermeable surface.
