EVERY DAY UP AND DOWN

A small town with just one traffic light. Passing the same intersection every day. The same mini mall — we only have one. Churches, including the empty one that someone bought but is still boarded up. Before we go anywhere, though, there’s getting from the house up to the road.

Driveway in the front

It’s a long driveway, perilous in the winter. In terrible shape but we can’t afford to fix it, so gradually with the years, the asphalt breaks into small and smaller pieces until it’s almost gravel. Hard to use the snowblower on it. What’s the choice?

  1. We had a road like that ourselves, except ours was always gravel… it’s frustrating to get stuck before you get anywhere at all. πŸ™‚ On the other hand… it’s nice to not be facing a major road every time you look out your window. πŸ™‚

    • I love the view, but in the winter it’s a ski slope. We have to cram put all the cars at the top of the driveway and hike through the snow to get to them. For me, these days, that’s not a small thing. It’s all uphill leaving and slippy sliding all the way down. I live in dread of winter. But yet … I love being in the country. A bit ambivalent, I guess πŸ™‚
