wishing for winter

I am so sick of all of the roadwork that has been going on all spring and summer that I’m actually looking forward to winter this year, just so I can get from point A to point B without having to take a detour.

The worst of it is the sewer line project they are doing in Ferndale. Single lane roads were the norm all summer, but they’ve taken it a step further and the intersection at Goucher and Franklin Streets has been closed for a couple of weeks. There’s a way around that, too, but even it was closed earlier this week. So, instead, we’ve been driving past the hospital (which always has a lot of traffic) to get to work. The project was supposed to be done by now, but yet it isn’t.
Plus, up by our house, they are putting in sidewalks along Goucher Street. Again with the single lane roads. It wasn’t too bad until last week when they started working at the end of our street. This project isn’t supposed to be done until next month, but I think it might finish up before the Ferndale one does.
Here’s to winter!
