Today was just a day for roadblocks – first Flickr, then my own street. The county finally closed off our street. Soon the pavement will be removed, and construction will begin on the cul-du-sac.
Traffic is being re-routed on other parallel streets. The other morning, Laura was driving on Tranquil Drive, and said that a woman came out of her house, put her hands on her hips, and frowned at the detour signs. She also apparently frowned at Laura as she drove by. I’m sure she wanted to keep her street “tranquil”, but that same traffic has been cruising by our house for lo these many years.
As I walked back from the construction area in the middle of the street, it was nice knowing that some car wasn’t going to come flying over the hill and hit me.
