Harrisonburg Best/Worst 2006

TM -- December 19th, 2006

As we reach the end of the year, I think it would be interesting to take a look back at the best and worst of Harrisonburg in 2006. I’ll post my list here as a jumping off point (and probably amend and add to it later). Please leave your Best/Worst lists in the comments section.

Best:
-This blog. I’ve thought Harrisonburg needed something like this since I moved here years ago. Finnegan actually did it. I feel lucky to be a contributor and daily reader.
-On that note, The Hookah thread was probably the most entertaining…
-WNRN comes to Harrisonburg
-Harrisonburg gets its own Craigslist
-Downtown. Specifically the Friday Nights on The Square and Dave’s Taverna’s Rooftop

Worst (thanks to Finnegan for some help on this section):
-The ever multiplying traffic lights (like those at Reservoir and University).
-The congestion of the Burgess Rd./Harrisonburg Crossing area
-The alley between Finnigan’s Cove and the old Spanky’s remains closed and the hand-off of responsibility involved therein.
-The other laments of the Downtown merchants.

Your thoughts? Feel free to expand to any category of life around the ‘burg at all. Have fun!

-TM
