Port Townsend construction irony

This morning we awoke to find conutility workerrs outside our house.  There are a bunch of trucks with flashing lights.  All the workers are wearing bright orange vests.  Two guys are holding those stop/slow signs at the ends.
The irony is that traffic on this street is so very, very light.  A couple cars per hour is normal here.

Signs of Port Townsend: Getting to the library

One of the reasons I was looking forward to moving to Port Townsend was that I was hoping for a place where I could live without the car. So far it has gone well - the car pretty much sits in the driveway, untouched for days.

Today we walked to the library for a story time event for toddlers. We put the twins in the double stroller for the trip there. When we arrived, we saw 3 strollers already parked outside. I think that's a good sign.

On the way home, Zephyr refused to ride in the stroller. As he walked, he stopped at each puddle, observed the relationship between the reflection and the real objects, dropped a rock in & observed the corruption of the image, then picked up the rock and walked on. He had a fantastic time. When he got home, he was cold & wet, but 15 minutes later he was warm & asleep.
