Early Morning Surprise

March Slice of Life

March Slice of Life

I leave very early in the morning to get to school.  Since the time change it is very dark in the morning.  I drive many back roads on my way to school.  Lately, because of the craters in the roads due to the winter weather conditions I routinely drive with my high beams on scouting for any craters that could bend my rims and flatten my tire on my journey.  That would be a really bad way to start the day.

So this morning I was cruising along, carefully with my high beams on.  I turned on a road called Side Cut Road.  An accurate name for this road that includes posted signs for  large bumps caused  by the bad weather.  Yesterday, it was raining so it was a bit more difficult to see.  I was scouring the road and I saw a big puddle up ahead, but then I saw something else above the puddle.  I was wondering what it could possibly be.  I approached the puddle in the road and a mallard duck turned to look at me.  I looked to the right of the duck and lo and behold, there was another mallard staring at me.  I stopped the car and the green necked ducks took flight.  I smiled thinking, how appropriate to see them on St. Patty’s Day!
