First time, long time

Things are good.

I think I stopped updating because things have been good.

Also, let’s face it … no one was reading. I mean after all, I never said anything controversial, or informative, and, well, we don’t have kids, so … that about covers the reasons why someone would read a blog, right?

Three years after it opened, the first section of Fayetteville’s Interstate 295 loop is mostly quiet.

By the most recent count, it carries fewer than 9,000 cars a day – fewer cars than Scaleybark Road in south Charlotte, a two-lane road that weaves through a neighborhood.

The final segment of Interstate 485 in northeast Mecklenburg won’t open for another decade. The southern leg handles 120,000 cars daily and isn’t scheduled to be widened for seven years.

Emphasis added by me, of course. I don’t really know what to say about this story from the Observer this morning.
