and yellow contractor's tape

Ok, I admit it.

I overreacted when I drove by the Heritage Bank on Ballinger Way Sunday and saw the entire site surrounded in what looked like crime scene tape.

I thought the worst - bank robbery, dead bodies. Clearly I spend too much time reading police, state patrol, and FBI reports.

Steven H. Robinson went up to take photos and check it out. Steve, who besides being a terrific photographer, is a retired cop, calmed me down, and told me what to look for the next time.

If there had been police activity there should have been additional signage and staff restricting access. I did not see any signage on the the doors explaining the tape. There were no barricades or additional signage or staff restricting access.

And the explanation?

Steve said "It appeared that every asphalt surface had a new coat of sealer. The yellow tape is caution tape used by contractors."

Glad I was wrong.
