The first 500 flew by.
I reached 1,500 by Halloween.
By the time November came I was halfway through at around 2,000.
The start of the fourth quadrant was marked by number 2,500.
By 3000 I was certain I was nearing the end.
And now here I am. #3,387 marks the very end of my stormwater inlet mapping.
Originally charged with having the first quadrant of Farragut mapped by the end of my corps year, I have officially finished mapping the entirety of the Town. That's right. All four quadrants. Frankly I think I blew through it so quickly mostly because of how much I enjoy the experience of GIS Mapping. There's something kind of zen and adventurous about visiting my little storm drain friends be them on Kingston Pike or in secret hidey-holes around town.
#3,387 turned out not to be a storm drain at all but a different kind of stormwater inlet. A curb-cut. I found this guy to be a particularly good fit to end on. This drainage enters directly into Turkey Creek - which is where all these drainages end up eventually. Often less directly than this however.
It has been an adventure my dear inlets. I am sure we will have time together again before I leave, but if we don't, know that I enjoyed what time we had!
