Open Thread

Hey, I'm trying the open thread thing again. Use it to discuss whatever's on your mind.

Here's what's on my mind: traffic this morning in Winooski. I took these two pics at a few minutes after 8AM today, as I was turning off of Weaver Street onto West Allen, headed towards Burlington (notice the rearview mirror in the first one, which shows the cars backed up on Weaver Street). I was driving my partner to Gardener Supply Company in the Intervale, which is about 2 miles from our house. Because of construction in the Onion City and along Riverside, it took us literally 20 minutes. At 8AM. Here's a link to the site for Winooski Falls, which is what they're calling the city's new downtown center. I wish I had wi-fi in my car, so I could look at it when I'm stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic.Dscf2441Dscf2439

I was in that area last week to teach Excel and had completely forgotten about the entire project. I was quite surprised to see the gigantic structure. It's awesome! I love the idea of vital, thriving downtowns.

No wi-fi in your car? How about a little war-driving?

Speaking of wi-fi, (except that what they do is more like wi-max) the Cloud Alliance folks have their new website up and running, and they are quite pleased with it. They are partnering with some VT companies and electric co-ops to provide wireless high-speed internet infratstructure and services to rural areas of VT. You can sign up to be notified when services become available in your area, or just send them a supportive message! We need rural high-speed internet!
