Coming home tonight after working at the jail I was surprised by the mile-long line of traffic going the opposite direction. I know this road like the back of my hand and I've never seen this before so I had to pull over and record it. It's really no big deal but traffic isn't suppose to happen in the country is it? I mean that's why it's called country. There are less houses and people.
One bonus out of the event was turning the camera sideways and including the almost-full moon.
I got some interesting looks from the drivers while they passed by slowly. My side of the road was smooth sailing until further ahead at a stop sign.
This shot is blurry but captures the unusual sight. Ordinarily one or two cars might pass by while swooping around this curve.
I usually take the long way home but tonight in a small town at about the half-way point the road was closed due to construction. For a split second I was bummed but then I realized it meant being on the bike longer to double back.
I don't care for traffic when on the bike but tonight I was just glad to be holding the handle bars again. Maybe the traffic was a result of the detour or maybe an unusual infusion of Christmas shoppers. Who knows. All I know is it was good to be riding on an early evening in mid December with a full moon.
