Among the delights of springtime in Vermont--frost heaves and pot holes. I finished up my list of errands from yesterday (finished up today; my list of errands was more ambitious than I was yesterday). The roads are in terrible condition, with deep holes filled with water, cracks, sags and bumps. In addition, the highway department has started some kind of major project on a nearby bridge which has so far involved tearing down a number of buildings, setting up a blasting area, and stopping any two way traffic in the vicinity. This will impact my usual shopping routines.
I guess that I had better start to re-acquaint myself with what is going on in the area--and the news in general. I usually like to listen to NPR for my understanding of current events, but way too often lately I have been an avoider. The news is either depressing or it is triggering my high blood pressure.
Maybe I'll continue another week or two of blissful ignorance.
