The City of Atlanta is putting ANOTHER All Way Stop on Flat Shoals between my house and EAV. This will be the third one in that quarter mile stretch within the last year. The three intersections they (will) have made All Way Stops are Flat Shoals / May, Flat Shoals / Newton, Flat Shoals / Milton (Van Vleck). On that street there is only one intersection they’ve left alone, Flat Shoals / Van Epps. This will also be the fifth intersection in the mile stretch on Flat Shoals between Glenwood and Bouldercrest to become an All Way Stop, four or which were erected since 2021. The City is out of control! I’m so fucking tired of this nonsense that if I were independently wealthy I’d start a campaign to stop their madness.
I’m a little less mad that I forgot that March is Phoenix Flies month. Throughout the month there are free tours of buildings and neighborhoods. Prior to 2020 I really enjoyed the odd things that I could discover for free.
Say goodbye to the Southside Beltline until 2025. Converting gravel to pavement starts today and is projected to finish in Q4 2024. I’m pretty sure that I will be dead before the Atlanta’s circular driveway is completed.
In brighter news my volunteering with Trees Atlanta went well Saturday. We pulled a lot of invasive plants that were are on a piece of property which will eventually be incorporated into Kirkwood Urban Forest.
This morning the M6 is in for its 100k mile maintenance. My how mileage flies… I hope that they don’t find another expensive repair this visit.
I’m going to have to cover my beautiful potato plants for the next few nights to protect them from the predicted freezing weather. Dangen!
I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was FICUS.
