Traffic is backed up worste than it is at Sale Day at the Stockyards. Doesn’t seem l;ike the Clover County road crew are doing much. But by the size of flat-rock going down, I suppose they are taking it carefully. I’m by the orange Roode Werk when I begin to make some figures. I figured Greg McIntyre would be up directing traffic, but he is down by the flat-rock pile helping the Clover County road crew scope in their laser range finder.
Traffic is being directed by one Ernie Stubbs. He is standing on the 55-gallon drum just short of the Water-Bridge holding a sign that says, Stop! on one side, and, Go Slow on the other.
Ernie alternates the cars. He turns the Stop! to stop the traffic from one side. Then turns to the vehicle that the Go Slow side is to and motions them accross.
That car enters the water bridge and drives carefully accross to the other side. The funny thing is that when each vehicle enters the water-bridge it splashes some water up to drench Ernie. Ernie shakes his fist at the car at it passes, and then turns to direct the next vehicle accross.
Ah, the advantages of Township one-lane water-bridges.
I am tempted to pull over and watch this repeating comedy all day. But I do have to catch up on business when the traffic line pulls up to another orange sign, more professional; everything is spelled correctly.
The sign reads; "Caution: Sensitive Biological Survey."
