Very much Ugh. My dad bought a small house on the bay in Stone Harbor in the 1950's that started out as a garage. Most houses there were modest summer cottages surrounded with local shrubs and small trees. We sold the house in 2001. It was enlarged into a fancier place, resold, and whole thing torn down 5-6 years ago. Now an enormous, ostentatious 2-story, completely covering the lot.Not that it matters, LOL, but this is what the woods looked like when I moved to that home in Medford
And here is it with the McMansions. Actually forgot, they built two side-by-side, they had to get a variance because the lots were too small. Ugh.
(BTW, if those links don't work, it's because the elves are moving the maps to a new server this weekend )
That's funny. My daughter was looking at a house right here 3 weeks ago, and I said she should not do it, that the kids would be up and down that powerline in ATV's. So she gave it up.
I think you are getting through. You are angry and frustrated about how the state conducts its business. That is understandable, and many of us feel the same. However, I'm trying to put all of that on hold, because anger and frustration about things beyond my control just doesn't help during these difficult times. We'll have plenty of time for that when the crisis is over. Frankly, right now, I'd rather hear about @c1nj 's dirt bike and @bobpbx 's daughter.Perhaps I'm not getting thru or folks just don't want to hear it.
Take a walk at Double Trouble SP and see the handiwork done there, 25 acres of cedar left in nicely stacked rows. It was supposed to be booty for the logger and sold.Jessica remarked about them leaving the area as is and felt it looks pretty bad.
This is disgusting. unfortunately, it's inevitable: think of what the barrens will be like in 100 years. current world population is 7.8 billion. It's projected to be 10.9 billion in just 80 years. Where will everyone live? They will live in places which are now rural like the Barrens. Just look at how the Barrens were in 1920 to see what I mean. Our favorite haunts will be gone after we are gone, especially with the amount of money to be made in real estate development and construction.And here is it with the McMansions. Actually forgot, they built two side-by-side, they had to get a variance because the lots were too small. Ugh.
