It's here now. The county north of us just grew by 70k. I don't even want to know what our county has grown by. I was coming home through our little town (pop. 643 when we moved here almost 20 years ago) last Friday afternoon, and the traffic from the train crossing was backed up a half mile . A busy day used to be 3 or 4 cars. All the woods are now being carved into subdivisions, the "prairie" used to be farmers fields, hay, bluegrass and mint, and now it's a sea of roofs.
Winter in Big Town was usually low traffic when all the tourists and snowbirds left, but now you can't make it through a green light there is such a backup. That's year round.
We just had a snow event, 6-8 inches all over and the amount of traffic accidents was horrendous, people don't know how to drive.
You can spot most of the newcomers. They're driving shiny pimped out vehicles and riding your tail, or racing by and cutting people off.
And now they all think they live in the boonies and are hunters, after they take their on-line course.
Whoa! You hit a nerve there Bay!
