This interactive map shows where the federal stimulus money is going for road projects and such.
Zoom in and/or "mouse over" individual counties to see how bad things really are outside of your "bubble."

Many areas in Northern Michigan like Cheboygan Co. and Presque Isle Co. (in the tip of the "mitt")
are showing 22-25% umemployment.
My home county (Lenawee) has double the percentage of unemployment as neighboring Washtenaw county (where I am employed) which has quite possibly the lowest unemployment in the state. I'm lucky to work in one of those bubbles.

The bubbles are starting to pop...

As long as NYC, NY State, taxes are high they will bring their cash and buy homes in my area. I see they are selling 2 mil town homes two miles down the road and a 150 mil town center, homes, restaurants, and stores, is getting started less then a mile down the road. I guess they, NY, and their high taxes are a boost to my area!
