This week a crew came by and resurfaced the lane to the house.
During the last election period, the some of the candidates for Mayor went door to door campaigning and the one who ultimately won observed to the neighbors he was shocked at the lamentable state of the road.
Frankly, I thought it was more picturesque before. But, I´m confident that it will now be left to quietly decay in place, so in a few years it´ll develop that patina of rusticity that appealed to me. At least it´s basically sturdy gravel, with a light spray of asphalt to hold it all together, and not a petro-chemical engineering project. There was a rumor that they were going to repave all along the logging road up to some hamlet or other. V and I were appalled. There´s quite enough traffic in tractors, trucks and cars (!) as it is. We suspect there won´t be enough in the budget for those sorts of projects ever again.
In other news, lately the sunrise is getting later and later, but the results are spectacular.
