Taking the cutoff on hwy 46 going east from 5 to 99, I can’t believe the ‘development’ as I approach the near half-way point between the major north/south highways where the only visage of civilization between the almond orchards and artichoke fields used to be one flashing caution yellow light where the gas station was, next to a little convenience store, liquor store and an insurance office I think across the street with literally 2 blocks of houses.

But what is not here is any trump signs, which I’m thrilled.
