An interesting drive last night.
Yes. It rained a bunch in Southern Ontario yesterday. Then it stopped and left a lovely fog behind. I almost wondered if my brother Peter was traveling with me, the fog was so thick. (heehee). It was a thick, pea soup fog, which made seeing the lights on 6 interesting. (Or rather, difficult. The ones by the Wendy's at the top of the hill- nearly was upon them without seeing them or the cars stopped and waiting). I also wasn't able to see the dinosaurs that usually show up quite well. (They are big, don'tcha know?) I was a little worried that the drive would take FOREVERly long. I stopped after a while to refresh myself, though the fog had progressively lessened it wasn't gone by halfway home.
Then, I arrived at a town which is often a crossroads for my journeys and found the fog had lifted and there were stars visible! I was quite excited to see the stars, but was almost instantly surprised by the lightning. I drove with lightning to the North all the way home from there. Never more than a minute between strikes.
Also, the signs of spring, they are everywhere. It was sounding quite like a spring night, as the peepers and chirppers were out in earnest. I had to put the window down at one point to savour the sound!!
But crazy frogs- they decided they would try to play a 2011 version of frogger. They jumped and they jumped across the road. I don't recall squishing any, but other cars had been enforcing the "Game Over" for a few of them, along the way.
I did make it home safely, though. It's sometimes fun to have added excitement to your drive, when it's not of the dangerous kind.
Happy trails to you!
