The Nottingham Wawa -- the one across from Herr's -- will be closed from Aug. 1 through 26 for remodeling. The gas pumps will stay open, though. It looks as if they are going to be upgrading the store significantly. When we stopped in on Saturday evening, they had already started installing ornamental stonework around the columns of the gas pump kiosks. According to a sign, all the workers will be transferred to other Wawas during the shutdown and will return to Nottingham store when it's finished.
Note to those of you who think Tilda leads a glamorous life, flitting from one society event to the next: we were at the Wawa at 9 p.m. on Saturday night, in the pouring rain, to get something to drink and to buy Powerball tickets, after shopping at the Oxford Wal-Mart. There. I said it.
