Driving home from work this week I saw a couple of things that got the wheels chugging in my brain. The first was earthmoving equipment across Gull Road beginning the demolition process on what was the Gull Road Automotive station.
The running joke around Kalamazoo for the past few years has been how every empty building is becoming a credit union. Well, it's no joke, but Gull Road from Riverview in Kalamazoo all the way to Meijer in Comstock Township is the "wash" capital of the county if not the entire Midwest.
Why is it, when I travel westbound on Gull Road, just past the light on Sprinkle, my tires or wheels make a horrible grinding noise? I'm sure a mechanic or a car aficionado can explain this, but I sure can't.
