If you like road construction, raise your hand. Actually, don't, because you are probably alone. Every where I went yesterday I ran into contruction of some sort, or Idaho Power blocking a road that I needed to get through, etc. Having to travel through several mazes, and getting backed up in traffic with others who are probably just as frustrated as I am, but a big damper on my day. I managed to get through the 83712 area, even after a number of issues with various sprinkler systems that really slowed me down. One place in particular cost me about 40 minutes of time, when usually I am in and out within 10-15 minutes, sometimes even less. So, I was only able to get to about 4 in the 83703. I am going to make another attempt at the 83703 tomorow, and if there is time, start in the 83702.
I'm not going to post a route this time around, because I am not sure how well I will be able to keep to it with all the contruction everywhere, but here are the streets I need to get to in the 83703. Those in the 83703 that I need to get to today have received a text.

Make sure gates are accessible, valve boxes are visible and not covered up with dirt, bark, rocks, leaves, etc., so I can find them easily. If I have to take a lot of time to find them, I am taking away from time I could be doing someone's sprinkler blowout. If you are paying by check, please have checks ready and made out to "The Maintenance Shop." If I have to wait even 5 minutes for a check to be written, and with a possibility of 20 checks, that is more than 1.5 hours lost just waiting on payment. A time where with travel time included I could have done 3-5 blowouts.
I am still trying to put a tentative schedule together, and hope to have it up by the weekend.
