while driving around

While driving around today I noticed the higher than average number of out-of-state license plates. It is the time for the all the students to return to East Lansing. Aarrgh! This weekend is the start of the filling up of the dorms, which means I must start avoiding E. Lansing (I also avoid EL because of football Saturdays). As someone who makes her living because of college students it may seem a bit ridiculous but East Lansing is such a nice place in the summer. I have restaurants that are "summer only", for example. This weekend is going to be a mess, 47,000 students will arrive.

AT this time of year I tend to run all my errands on the west side of town. However road construction makes that mostly impossible. Sigh, this too shall pass.
