Slightly stripey

Yesterday afternoon, Andrew suddenly hollered, “They’re striping!”  Sure enough, when I ran to the window in our bedroom, a large piece of equipment was cruising slowly eastbound toward the bridge, simultaneously applying the double yellow and the white shoulder stripe on the eastbound side.

But (boo-hoo) that was it!  They never came back to give me my much-needed and greatly anticipated westbound shoulder stripe.  Sigh.  And today it’s raining, so I’m guessing no new stripes will be applied today.  I will say that it is rather challenging to walk in semi-darkness on wet, un-striped pavement and trust that you can be seen and won’t be hit.  However, I have my neon vest and headlamp, and I have faith in MoDOT.  I truly believe with all my heart that the day really will come when all the appropriate stripes (of various configurations and colors) WILL exist on my quarter-mile walking path!
