jammed up

heading out of town

there is so much construction going on right now in our little tiny town, that it feels like you're waiting for traffic no matter where you go. It's a real pain in the ass too because this is such a small town, you shouldn't have to deal with this crap.

One of the benefits (and there are many) of living in a smaller community is that you don't have to deal with traffic jams. I know that you have to endure the inconvenience of construction to enjoy the benefits it brings but boy, it's feeling like the construction will never end.

Sometimes though, it feels like it'll never start. We got a memo from the city in April and one from the construction company in June, about work which was scheduled to being on water mains on our street. It's almost August and it hasn't started yet. I know that they are 3 months behind in a similar project on my friend Robin's street so I don't have a lot of confidence that they will actually start the job this summer but who knows. Maybe they will rip our street up just in time for the snow to fly and leave us with a frozen, rutty mess to deal with all winter.

Oh well, I know it could be worse, because it can always be worse!!
