Life Changes Monday

The Orange Barrels Are Arriving

Michigan's seasons: Color, Gray, Mud and Construction. And Monday seems to be the start of the latter. It's hard to tell -- there are either two or three construction zones on US-131 between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. The one is either really long or broken into two pieces. Looks like they've erected a solar recharged portable camera tower in one spot, presumably to monitor traffic backups.

This cannot bode well. (grin)

Gas Relief

After surging past the four buck barrier to $4.15.9/gal, the price has been dropping a few pennies every few days since before Easter weekend. I think I saw $3.74.9/gal this evening, after $3.79.9 this morning.

Perhaps were being conditioned to fatalistically accept the higher prices this summer. Or perhaps the economy can't support the four buck outrage.

Oh well. It was a really pretty drive today. There's a small joy in that.
