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.
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?
