Townfolk: Consider yourself lucky

Posted February 3rd, 2010 by kcorliss. Comment (1).

I moan and groan daily about the state of our local roads and streets. Ice packed and treacherous (at least in the residential zones) they slow us all down to a crawl. Not to mention the corners where the snow is piled up so high you can’t see traffic in either direction. But little did I know how fortunate I was…until Sunday.

I took a short drive around Cass County and was stunned by the condition of the rural township roads. Virtually ever one of them is a sheet of ice, thanks to the inch of rain we received two weeks ago during our "warm" spell.

A person dares not drive much faster than 25 m.p.h. for fear of being thrust into the ditch in a hurry. Oh, and need I mention the many many miles of roads which will see no vehicles until spring? Here’s a road I was going to go down. Uh, not for a couple months.

Is any one else ready for spring?

    I’ve been ready for spring since the middle of October. Each morning I check my Sunrise / Sunset clock and smile to see that we have gained a couple more minutes of sunlight (1 hour and 16 minutes as of today) since the shortest day of the year. Then I take a sip of coffee and hope for more global warming!
