No Wake


Our Tuesday off was a good chance to pick up some supplies from the Twin Cities.  We made it through three months without making a single trip into the Big City, and now we’ve been there three times in as many weeks.  Go Figure.img_3203

The spur for today’s post is a simple sign.  I noticed it as we traversed a bridge over the Interstate Highway.

Have you ever been on the highway and had your vehicle pelted with snow from a plow on the bridge overhead?  I have and I have to tell you it was S-C-A-R-Y!  And the idea that there’s a reminder for the plow drivers to be  careful of the traffic on the lower level is absolutely brilliant!

Yay MN DOT!
