Parking not


it’s about 4:30 in the afternoon, six weeks ago. The van on the right parked two minutes ago. Never had I seen so few cars on the street. It was Day Two of PG&E’s gas line replacement project. The crew parked steel plates over holes at the opposite cross street, and had staged a lot of equipment on my block. Through all the inconvenience, I hoped some good would come out of it in the form of repaved streets in the neighborhood. I got almost half my wish, as they repaved almost half the street. The cross street in the far distance had been fully repaved by the city last summer, and PG&E tore a hole in it to get at another part of the gas line.
