Why “barrl”?

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the roads are perpetually under construction, and this was always a family joke when I was growing up. We’d say you knew you were back in New Mexico when the orange barrels showed up.

I dropped the “e” as a joke about Web 2.0. You know, like tumblr and flickr.

“Gusty winds may exist”? What’s with that?

It’s another weird thing about the New Mexico highway system: we have really uncertain road signs. I like it. I also like “falling rocks”, because it’s also such a useless warning: when the rocks come, what are you gonna do? Dodge them?
