|Road Repair? Woohoo!|
We had a work crew come by the house a few weeks back to tar the roads, or whatever it is they use to fix potholes. That was pretty exciting because in the 8 years we've been here, I've never seen a road repair crew come by. They were fixing the road in spots where potholes from last winter had gotten out of control.

Work machines are a big deal when you're 7-yrs.old :)
What really surprised me, and maybe I'm way behind times on this one, is how fast the roads dried!!! They'd block a lane, fix it while re-directing traffic to one side only, and then 20 minutes later cars were driving right over the spots repaired. We're talking large patches too, not just pot-hole sized ones.
What a great invention, especially true if it's high quality and holds up well! I remember roads taking all day long to fix.
Now if only they'd come back and re-paint the lines. Like I said, it's been weeks, and all around the countryside out here, there are streets with 12-16 foot patches or more that have no lines. I guess soon enough the snow will cover the streets and it won't matter a bit, but I'd like to have the lines just the same. :)
