Almost a month ago, I posted a rather pessimistic view of the way life sometimes plays out (link).
The irony of life is that not two weeks after I wrote that post and took the photo that illustrated my point, pavement engineers provided a wonderful velvety-smooth surface for that very same stretch of road.
Little did I know, they had planned the poor surface as a temporary fix until they had the weather, materials or time in their schedules to spread the new surface.
I thought that road would never improve. But things changed for the better — and much faster than I could have imagined.
