Atacama

Good news, bad news

Good news: Peet's finally opened in Redmond.

Bad news: Although it's on the way to work, construction has slowed travel time to three times that of the alternate route (Union Hill Road, with no Peet's). Plus, there's no drive-through, it's on the wrong side of the road, and it's in the back of the Whole Foods parking lot (which means extra stoplights to get there).

At least it'll be convenient on the way home after they're finished rebuilding SR-202... in about a year's time.
