Oh yes, ORANGE..............we are starting to see this color pop up every where in Michigan. The color symbolizes balance, warmth, enthusiasm, vibrancy, flamboyancy, and is demanding of attention.
Believe me the orange we see here in Grand Rapids gets our attention, it gets our undivided attention as the color orange we see makes up stop in our path and ponder!
We ponder, how long am I going to have to sit here? Am I going to get lost if I follow those orange signs that lead me some where other then where I want to go?
When I moved here 7 years ago and decided to become a realtor, my first outing with a client was some what embarrassing. I had the list of homes we wanted to see, planned out the route and then mapped them out on Google maps. Well, hardly any of my directions worked as I was detoured just about every time, then if we include the one way streets ................ Well lets just say I got lost ............ very lost! Thank goodness, my client was a friend and we had a good laugh!
Not to complain too much, as I am happy we take care of our roads, but so many at one time?! My husband jokes and says he thinks MDOT looks at the map and says.......... okay what streets do we not have repairs going on? Let's see what we can do to them.
So in the summer months when planning out my showings, I make a little more time in the schedule, as I am
not sure what I am going to run into, not sure how far the detours are going take me, and learned to be patient, as I come from PA (voted by truckers the worst roads in the US) and try to remember it could be worse.
This year I will take my camera with me, as I may find something to post on Active Rain!
