McColl Siding
Title:  McColl Siding
Description:  Within the city limit of McAllen; there once were packing sheds for citrus. Later more modern cold storage warehouses moved north to be closer to Hwy 281 for trucks. The last active shipper was loading scrap paper to recycling plants in Mexico. UP was not very thrilled with routing it to San Antonio back through Laredo. So UP added additional tariffs to kill it. Here RVSC passes the remains of the packing house.

Description:  Crossing Cage Blvd; I tried to be artsy-fartsy on this one. Later, I wondered why I didn't try to include the Bougainvilleas more often and I had forgotten about the Dec 2004 snow that wiped out a lot of plants. The city removed most of the flowers after the snow.
