Lovers’ Day is approaching
Valentine’s Day is the second most celebrated holiday around the world second only to New Year’s Day. St. Valentine's Day began as a religious celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. We hope that 2013 brings you a happy Valentine’s Day celebration!
Pavement heaves are annoying
Have you noticed the big dips and rises in our Thurman roads? Well, so have I.
These annoying road ridges that punish automobile suspensions prompted my research into their causes.
I’ve learned that the ice grows in the direction of the heat loss — towards the surface — and it requires a water supply to continue feeding it. The second reason is related to benzene which is a derivative of crude oil, which we all know is part of the makeup of our roadways today. Well, while I don’t particularly care for swerving all over the roads to avoid the bumps and dips — However I do prefer roller-coaster pavement over dirt roads.
