Corey has had to deal with the challenge of driving to work in Las Vegas construction or attempt to try and maneuver himself around it. Ah, the good old days (not) of experiencing that very thing in Salt Lake. I suppose Las Vegas and SLC can afford to put up detour signs - though it seems inconvenience - there is the option of using other streets. Not so true in this part of Oregon.
I told Corey that has been another plus to living here. Sometimes I have noticed Roseburg streets seem at a shutdown, but here in Myrtle Creek, the road construction has generally been less than a week. Cones go up, signs go up, but they either move down the road or else disappear altogether.
There was the inconvenience of going South on Old Pacific during a few months last year, but hey, Old Pacific is a long road connecting Myrtle Creek to Tri-City and a way out to Riddle. As inconvenient as it was for many, it did at least move.
This year there has been construction on a neighborhood road leading out to Old Pacific. The signs have moved - but seem to be making their way into the neighborhood rather than out of it. Currently, there is the option of turning right instead of left and winding my way through the adjoining neighborhoods - but I prefer going to the light than around the neighborhood. At the rate the signs are moving, it will be inconvenient to try to go either direction.
The news forecast told about an expected heat wave for Roseburg. No No No. I want the temperatures for the past six weeks to continue. Heatwave not welcome! When Jenna and I passed the fire department this morning, we saw that the fire danger sign had been changed from moderate to high. NOOOOO
The largest class in attendance to the water fitness last year had been 15 - or maybe 16 with the instructor. On Friday we had 20 in attendance - our largest class yet. And the pool was cold again. Body heat does not penetrate in the water or else no one had any to give
I haven't been to the pool for four days and my body has been rebelling as I haven't had a good workout. I chose not to go on Monday as it looked cold out, and though the temperature of the pool has been opposite of the air in years' past, that has not been the case this year. Yesterday my stomach was giving me problems and I thought being in the water would only add to those problems.
We were told that the water was the coldest Monday than it had been all summer. It was also learned that the thermostat/heater has not been producing accurately. I had that figured out last month.
We could hear police sirens in the distance sounding closer to us and had expected to see them. After we returned home, I was hanging wet clothes on the line. I could hear yard buzzing coming from my neighbor's yard. We don't have a garden this year. I haven't missed having to go out and weed and so forth.
