    It is amazing how many people are still traveling East on C… past several barricades… assuming that they’ll be able to sneak on through. Sorry, the intersection at C and 45 is really closed. Several times the barricades have even been pushed off to the side as if that would change the outcome.

    And word to the motorcycle enthusiasts that are using desolate Hwy C as a race track: People still live along the road and do not need to hear you playing with your toys. Be adults. Or we will call for someone to explain it to you.
