Did grocery shopping early this morning, as it's becoming clearer that tomorrow and Saturday will be Major Traffic Mess due to rolling street closures. The Space Shuttle will be parked for 9 hours about a mile from my house - with the chance of every looky-loo in Los Angeles driving over to take a picture of it with his or her cell phone IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT IT'S ONLY GOING OVER TO THE SPACE CENTER WHERE THEY CAN SEE IT ANY TIME.

Road crews are still tearing out the traffic islands on the route.

The newscrews in the supermarket parking-lots, and the piles of closure-signs heaped on the corners near-by, remind me of New Orleans the week before Mardi Gras - particularly when coupled with the rain that swept through early this morning.
