Orange Barrel Fever

Spring is knocking on the door, and the number of orange barrels and cones will be increasing.

Fortunately for us, because of a mild winter, some road repairs were continued through the winter months.

Now, that brings up one of my favorite rants: Those immature, asinine, hypocritical idiots who complain about the traffice slow downs caused by the construction and repairs. Hey, these are the same dummies who complain that the roads need repair, narrow roads need to be widened, etc etc etc. Do these idiots expect some "highway construction fairy" to wave their magic wand and miraculously the repairs happen overnight?

Yes, the orange barrels cause slow downs. What are the alternatives? Increased road deterioration, antiquated road designs, potential for accidents.

Come on folks.........wake up..smell the thankful that the various agencies involved are doing these repairs.
