with some of our more interesting twists and turns
and wonder about the mindset
of the road planning engineers.
were they perhaps going for
more of an ‘artsy’ and unexpected approach to the roads?
more like the road of life?
“life is full of surprises and serendipity. being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. if you try to plan every step, you may miss these wonderful twists and turns. just find your next adventure – do it well, enjoy it, and then, not now, think about what comes next.”
-Condoleezza Rice – Former U.S. Secretary of State
a michigan ice cream shop hopes its promotion will take away some of your pothole pain. farmhouse coffee & ice cream in franklin in metro detroit, is giving free scoops of its michigan pothole ice cream to victims of potholes in the state.
if you spent money on pothole repairs, just bring in your receipt for a free single scoop in a cup or cone of the michigan pothole flavor. what’s in that flavor you ask? it’s described as “thick black tar fudge in rich chocolate ice cream with cookie asphalt pieces.” the offer is good for one scoop per receipt. the promotion ends on March 25, 2018.
“without ice cream there would be darkness and chaos.”

GOOD NEWS! I-96 reopened 3 weeks early, and morning commutes became easier on Monday morning after 6 months of 7 miles of total road closure. On Sunday afternoon thousands of people came down to a stretch of the reconstructed I-96 to enjoy a Metro Detroit freeway as never before … by walking, on bike and with anything else they could ride – even a marching band showed up. Any and all were invited to join in the celebration. That’s how we roll in the motor city.
