A letter a few days ago complained about road repairs being done on a very busy street during rush hour. Today's response to him reminded me of part of an e-mail forward I saw the other day, which listed several "You know you're from the Northwest if..." items:

Do you take road construction season in stride or do the inconveniences irritate excessively?
