125/365 Ghost town

On our way home from Wisconsin this weekend Mike and I stopped to plane spot. Unfortunately they had reconfigured the runways due to wind, so our normal spotting grounds were dead. We decided to drive around and scout a new spot, and stumbled upon a deserted subdivision.

All the houses were boarded up and the roads were dead.

Apparently it had all been bought up by the airport for expansion.

It was such an eerie feeling even in the middle of the day. Mike and I agreed it felt very post-apocalyptic.

Here is a sign that was hanging in a couple different parts of the subdivision. Obviously the residents were not all to thrilled about being forced out of their homes.

These signs were posted on every window and every door of all the homes.
