Roadscapes Wednesday: Pictures Of The Old Wedowee Alabama Traffic Lights


Roadscapes Geek Alabama

This week on Roadscapes Wednesday, I am uploading some pictures way back in May 2006.  Back then, the small town of Wedowee Alabama had a intersection controlled by traffic lights.  US 431 is a 4-lane through the town, while AL-48 intersects.  The intersection has one traffic light on all four sides.  And they were the classic 4-way lights.  Sadly, the lights came down later in 2006 after the control box failed, and the intersection today is controlled by a 4-way stop.  So, enjoy my pictures of this classic traffic light intersection.

Paddlin’ 4 Paws Boat Races On Lake Wedowee 2013


Picture1odspsp

On Saturday I went to the 5th annual Paddlin’ For Paws Fun-Raiser at Chimney Cove on Lake Wedowee.  Many people turned out to see cardboard boat racing in the water.  And yes some boats did not make it and sank.  The rain thankfully held off until the very end!

This event raised money for the Randolph County Animal Shelter.  Since opening on November 2007, over 1300 adoptions have taken place.  RCAS has one of the highest adoption rates in Alabama.  And I think everyone had a great time!

Building A New Website For Unlimited Fiberglass

This post is about something I put together for a person who met me at a Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce function.  James O’Rear wanted a simple website designed for a storm shelter business called Unlimited Fiberglass.  Along with Stanley Cofield, this business will build and install storm shelters, safe rooms, panic rooms, emergency shelters, and other fiberglass construction.  Here is a screenshot of the new website!

This business will thrive because there is a huge market for storm shelters in the southeast ever since the April 27th tornado outbreak.  So if you live in Alabama or in the southeast and are wanting a storm shelter built for your home, church, or business; contact Unlimited Fiberglass at 256-357-2105 or by e-mail at info@unlimitedfiberglass.net.  The website will also include new features such as a products page and testimonials as new shelters are built!

To learn more about Unlimited Fiberglass & Storm Shelters go to: http://www.unlimitedfiberglass.net

Like them on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/UnlimitedFiberglass and on Twitter @UNFiberglass.  Yep, I set that up as well!  By the way, if you want a simple website designed, contact me at barcncpt44@aol.com
