Hey, speaking of US 221, Dana and I were headed to West Jefferson though Wilkesboro and saw the new intersection between US 421 and US 221 at the top of the hill to start the wrong-way multiplex.  Is US 221 being rerouted or is it just an elaborate trumpet intersection?
That trumpet is part of the project to widen US 221 to four lanes from US 421 to Jefferson NC.

Clickbait is pretty annoying. It finds its way onto YouTube as well, which I highly frequent. Too many times, a video, before being clicked on, has an absolutely outrageous thumbnail (either good or bad), but the thumbnail is nowhere to be found in the video itself. The video may still be a very good one (though that definitely isn't the case every single time), but the clickbait is extremely annoying, and may give you a little (or a lot of) disappointment by the end of the video. Whether on articles or videos or anything else, sometimes clickbait just cannot be evaded.  :meh:

You must be talking about all the potential porn videos.  After a while you realize it's never going to be as advertised.

I may have posted this, but I know that the town of Kaskaskia, IL is on the western side of the Mississippi river from the rest of Illinois.  What I didn't know is that there's a small portion of IL by Cairo that's south of the Mississippi river from the rest of IL.  In looking at the border, it's obvious that this bit of Illinois is not on the opposite side of the river because of changes in the river's course, as the border is a straight line.  Anybody know what's up with this bit of Illinois?

I'm not a big fan of the beltline proposal, for the following reasons:
  • The beltline proposal lacks a direct connection with the Tilton/Belgium/Westville/Georgetown US-150/IL-1 corridor, and without a direct connection between that area of Vermilion County, IL and the beltline, you're not going to alleviate any congestion on IL-1
  • The beltline would probably not be heavily-used, with most of the traffic being traffic from I-74 from points west and east of Danville to the big-box retail district in the northern part of Danville, which is probably a small percentage of the customers of the big-box stores in that part of Danville

These are extremely good points.  I'd assume a lot of the traffic on IL-1 comes from people in Danville trying to access the nearby towns to the south and vice versa.  What is the point, if people in Tilton, Georgetown etc. can't use it?
Since US 41 Indiana 63 runs just a few miles east of there for all the long distance traffic, Illinois 1 is going to be almost all local traffic not really needing a bypass. If you are forced to use route 1 though expect a very, very slow ride from Chicago south with lots of small towns, tons of stop lights in Watseka, and Danville seems to stretch forever though the north south axis. The drive from Westville-Georgetown to the shopping district on the north edge of Danville is also a good 20 minutes.

How about Maryland?  It's a pretty long drive from Ocean City out to Appalachia.

Pocomoke City, MD to Oakland, MD
324 miles
5:25 hours drive time

Google Maps uses an all-MD routing (US-13, US-50, I-97, MD-100, I-70, I-68, US-219).

The final little morsels of last week's snow met their demise yesterday as the warming trend culminated in a high temperature near 70. Not quite that warm today, and there's a front coming in bringing rain and maybe a few storms this evening. It'll cool us off a bit and usher in some actual normal late-January weather with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
