The team here at Noon is going a bit stir-crazy with all this snow and took their favorite grass, tree and tick costumes into the heart of the storm. Hope you enjoyed the snow as much as we did!!

Pictured below is the original Tiger Stadium built in 1912 in one of Detroit’s most desolate sections. It was torn down in 1999 and replaced by the new Tiger Stadium in Detroit’s downtown . Since then local landscapers and lawn care professionals have volunteered their time to maintain the upkeep of the original park. A pretty cool photo!
