Quaker Street is officially closed due to unbelievable MUD! The road crew is desperately trying to find a solution for residents on that end.Dirt roads are especially bad all over, presumably because the frost got so deep with such little snow cover over the winter. We ask you to kindly refrain from driving on the dirt roads for a while if you don't have to. Extra traffic will make the conditions worse, and the residents on those roads will appreciate your willingness to drive around if you can. Your vehicle will probably also appreciate it if you avoid the muddy ruts for a little while too.
It is not typical for our dirt roads to be closed during mud season. Our road is completely dry as is our yard. But when I rode my bike Sunday I did hit some pretty soft dirt roads but nothing like the picture below!
A woman I work with lives on Quaker Street and she told me her husband took this picture. They got the truck out by hot wiring logging equipment that happened to be nearby. This truck was pulling sap to make maple syrup. I hope it was still usable!
Gripe of the day:
I drove all the way to Burlington tonight after a long day - aren't they all - for my swim lesson and the instructor didn't show up. I like her but..........
And still trying to decide on full sleeved vs. sleeveless wet suit if you can only get one. I have a coupon code to use and may order soon. Thanks!
