Rt 5 traffic

Okay, so I love shopping. I'm happy that I live in an area where I can easily get to most of the stores where I like to shop. But enough already. Route 5 in Wallingford is just crazy most of the time. When I moved to town in 1996, the traffic was bad, but now it is much worse than it used to be. Since the Super Wal-Mart and Home Depot opened, and now with BJs and the soon to open Lowe's, traffic on Route 5 has become a nightmare. Like everyone else in town, I usually take a short cut up North Main Street, but even that is congested all the time,

I think its time for the Town Council to seriously consider some sort of a moratorium on the larger retail projects here in town.

Welcome to Wallyworld

Hello, and welcome to my new blog, Life in Wallyworld. I'm a busy mom, living in Connecticut in a great town, affectionately known to many as Wallyworld. Most people just know it as Wallingford, CT. I've lived here for about 11 years, and have come to love this town for all its quirks and perks.

In this blog, I'm going to be commenting on the things going on in town that I like, that I dislike and that I think make this town so nice.
