I am back on the mainland and blogging from Seattle with South Austin in the rearview mirror. Don't worry Virgin Island fans, I will most certainly be back in the Caribbean for visits if not full-time. And I'm sure St. Thomas will creep it's way into many future posts. For now, it's all about living in the Pacific Northwest!

Parking Changes? - It could be worse!

When I started working at the State, someone told me that if someone says something in public more than once, it's pretty much gonna happen. I have witnessed this to be true more than once. I don't want to jump the gun but it seems like the decision has already been made. And this decision did not require a popular vote. So my '04 neighbors and mostly those that are a more expensive cab ride away, it looks like downtown parking changes are on the way. There was a survey that was quietly circulated to about 600+ people asking their opinions on proposed changes but so far, I haven't been able to find the results of the survey and there are rumors on the web about some business owners being shut out of the process.  Here's the run down... The meters and park and pays will be in effect until midnight during the week with a 3 hour time limit.  Watch out for those happy hours, you won't be able to leave your car without getting a ticket. Though even multiple tickets are cheaper than the alternative. Saturday's are targeted too. Cheer up, it could be worse...
