Eats roads for breakfast…

After months of back and forth and, sadly, a failed Prop 2 1/2 Override vote to fund comprehensive road reconstruction in town, repaving, such as it is, kicked off this week across town.

I’m not usually one who stops to marvel at heavy equipment, but this bad boy going by on Cross St. yesterday morning almost rattled me out the front door. I must say, it was pretty cool to see this monster up close, as it rolled by, stripping the pavement right off and leaving a trail of unpaved dirt in its path. Cool stuff, even if it made for a hectic start to the week.
