Today it finally happened. I’ve been appraising houses for fifteen years now. That is fifteen road-construction seasons.
Today was the first time that I simply could not get thru to an appointment!
I’ve parked a few blocks away and walked before. No big deal there. But today’s appointment was in the country, on a small drive off another road. I tried three different ways to get around. But it just wasn’t happening. The different road construction guys I talked to, at my different thru-attempts, told me to come back in a few hours. Well, that certainly wasn’t on my schedule!
To the north was a swamp . . couldn’t park somewhere and walk thru that! To the west and south were lots of heavy machinery and fresh asphalt. To the east was a solid mile of woods. There was no where close to park and walk. I called the people and told them I couldn’t get there today.
Tonight I am thankful that it took fifteen years to have a day like today where I simply couldn’t find a way around. That is a pretty good run of no road construction stopping me I think!
