Yesterday, I wrote about a survey that was done showing how dissatisfied Amarillo residents are with the maintenance of our roads and sidewalks.

We also constantly complain about the amount of road work that seems to be happening all the time.

The work they've been doing on I-27 feels like it's been happening for an eternity. Well, to be fair, it kind of has been. They started that project a year ago, and it just now seems like they're doing something with it.

The truth is, they have been working on it even though it didn't feel like it. They're now moving on to stage two of this project.

I know, you're saying the same thing I said. Do you mean to tell me that after a year of work, we're not close to done with it? The correct answer to that is, yes. There are still another two years of construction ahead of us.

So now what we're looking at is instead of the center lanes being closed off, they're moving to the outside and reconstructing off-ramps? Well, that should end up becoming a massive inconvenience. Especially considering the ramps they're re-doing.

Georgia and Washington are extremely heavily used ramps, so not only are we stuck to two lanes on the highway for now, but the side roads and access roads are going to constantly be jammed up because of closures to those ramps.

I have no doubt that when this project is done, it's going to be totally worth it. However, for now it's just going to be a big nuisance.

This Florida Man Can't Handle All the Texas of the Panhandle

Shhhh...keep yer voice down low! You don't want to scare the little bloke off.

Stay close and keep quiet as we take an incredible journey: following a YouTuber from Florida, The Daily Woo, as he makes his way across the rugged Texas Panhandle landscape.

Yo won't believe what catches this big bloke's fancy!

The Somewhat Small Towns of the Texas Panhandle

Say what now? Somewhat small?

That's right. These are the towns that seem massive when compared to teensy weensie two-stoplight towns like Pringle (30) or Kerrick (25), but they're definitely not on the same level as cities like White Deer or Panhandle....much less Amarillo.

Buckle up! We've got a places to go and towns to see! These populations are well over 100, but way less than 1000.

All aboard the Somewhat Small Texas Panhandle Towns tour!
