RETURN OF CEE’S WHICH WAY CHALLENGE

Cee’s Which Way Challenge – July 27, 2016

Lots of road pictures in my world. For people who don’t travel much, we seem to be on the road all the time. Lots of little trips … vets, doctors, groceries, friends, the pharmacy … and back again.

And everywhere … construction. From the day after the snow melts until the next time the snow falls, almost every road in the northeast is being repaired, upgraded, resurfaced. It never seems to end.

  1. Great which ways Marilyn. For some reason I’m being drawn to your last photo. Maybe because it has the feel of autumn.

    • Thanks Cee. It does look autumnal, doesn’t it. I don’t remember when I took that picture. Might have been last November or October. Our town has looked like this for at least 3 years. Same trucks. Some guys. Same holes in the road. It’s everywhere. Until the snow flies, we are deep into construction and repair.

  2. We took the Go train into Toronto yesterday to see this art exhibit. It cost $9.90 return and took us directly to the subway that went directly to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum). No charge for parking at the Go station. I’m sold on that mode of transportation now. You could enjoy the view without the hassle of the traffic in a nice air conditioned train. No more which way for me.

    • If we had that option, I’d be ON it. We just drove the 30 miles to Worcester and back, which should take just about half and hour, but with all the construction, it took almost an hour. No public transportation. None. Not even a taxi.

      • That public transit makes such a difference and it is well used. The giant parking lot at the station was almost full. We had to hunt for a spot.

    • I was hit by one about 10 years ago. I was scared before, but now … well … I have trouble passing them. If they swerve, and I can testify that they do, there’s absolutely nothing to do except hope your airbags work!

  4. It’s an international symptom of modern life, repairing it all. We have a lot of damage during the Winter from ice and freezing temperatures,, meaning that during the Summer the roads are repaired, exactly when little Switzerland is visited by hoards of tourists – one of the reasons we are glad we no longer do road trips to a holiday place.

    • The start “fixing” as soon as the snow melts … March, or April at the latest … and continue until the weather stops them. The only time the roads aren’t blocked by heavy machines is when they are blocked by ice and snow. Takes the fun out of road trips. I got a note from a follower in Siberia. She says it’s the same there.
