I knew there was a problem when I encountered gridlocked traffic on our country road yesterday afternoon.
I glanced at the freeway...not one vehicle to be seen! That spells trouble on a Friday afternoon. We live near the Trans-Canada Highway, and it seems there is never a lull in the traffic....unless of course, there is a serious motor vehicle accident.
And that is what happened yesterday afternoon just two miles east of our place. The freeway was closed in both directions for a good part of the afternoon. The poor motorists left the highway and wandered about our country roads...reaching a log-jam at every turn.
So this was the view from my front porch yesterday afternoon! I was thankful that I had nowhere of importance to go...and I went to pick my raspberries. I hope they enjoyed their scenic tour of my neighbourhood...a good start to a sunny holiday weekend!
