I have a choice of three different but reasonably direct routes to work. They are each very distinct. One takes a highway. One takes a main road through town. One is all back roads. It's nice to have options because there are frequent accidents (and no I am not the cause or victim of them all, thankyouverymuch).
Early this summer construction began on the highway (and still continues). Any time the highway gets gnarly the main road through town backs up as folks seek the alternate route.
Then they started digging up the back roads, which also diverts traffic to the main road through town.
Then they decided to tear up the main road...
and trim trees on the main street and the back roads...
and close down bridges on the highway...
all at the same time.
Did I mention we live in a tourist area and it's vacation season?
It's been so very special trying to find a way to work lately.
Then yesterday they strangled the road in front of our office to one lane.
I expect tomorrow they will rip up our cul de sac too. It's just par for the course.
*No Limes were in actual traffic at any time during the shooting of this picture. This is a dramatic recreation staged in the parking lot of work. In fact, the key wasn't even in the ignition. In fact, I had nearly drained my battery to the point of the car being unwilling to start after leaving my lights on because this is not even my own car. I stole Mr. Lime's car and I'm not terribly familiar with all the controls. This post is approved by Lime. Reading of this post may cause severe nostril cramps, chafed knuckles, simple chronic hallitosis, gingivitis, excessive ear hair growth, palpitations, baldness, furry tongue, and personality disorders. Erections lasting longer then four hours should be examined by me...unless you're a woman or experiencing the other side effects, in which case I'll run screaming out of the room at what a freak you've become.
