Traffic Control

There is a lot of foot traffic at Farview.  I do see the turkeys and the occasional deer, but even so I did not realize until yesterday just how many pedestrian creatures travel through the property.  No vehicles had been on the driveway since the first snow fell.  While some renegades cut across the yard, I find it amusing that the majority of the walkers and joggers stayed on the drive.  When my milk customer came in the afternoon, having braved the icy roads, he asked how was my weekend.  It took me a minute while I tried to remember what a weekend was; that's not a word in my vocabulary.  "You must have had fun.  Looks like you had a lot of kids here."  Oh good grief!  He was talking about all the tracks in the driveway!

It really hasn't warmed up much for over a week.  Low 20s this morning, 46 in the house.  Enough snow melted yesterday that I found the lid to the trash barrel.  It had blown off the first night it snowed and I expected to find it down near the woods.  I'm glad I haven't had to go anywhere (the truck is 4-wheel drive) because the lid was lodged just behind a front tire.  It's also a good thing because I hate to drive in traffic, and pedestrians have the right of way.

Well, I told you there were signs pointing to your Critter Bed n Breakfast...guess the road signs were NOT covered in snow! That pedestrian path is AMAZING! I think you need a motion-sensor camera installed. Wouldn't that be a hoot to watch the footage!
