‘Tis the season to be jolly….
A crisp, sunny, cold winter’s morning for our walk to school. Cold enough to give us rosy cheeks, to see our breath misting in front of us. Today marks the 50th post on my blog, and more than 5000 visitors. Thank you for your continuing interest and support.
The school bus broke down today, so more parents needed to drive to school. Hence, the traffic volume was up. But it was nothing like the snarl up that occurred last Friday evening, for the school’s Christmas Fair. A dark night, loads of cars parked along the road, people trying to cross over and a busy path all contributed to a very challenging situation. At one point, we had a milk tanker reversing in our driveway to get out of the jam.
Thankfully, a lengthy stand off between the two stationary lines of traffic was resolved by neighbours nearer to school. They calmed down fraying tempers, persuaded people to reverse out of trouble, averted a potentially massive jam and a dangerous situation.
There was a car blatantly parked on the zig-zag lines right outside the school entrance. As I took this photo, a local resident commented “Oh yes, they’re often parked there during the day.”
Today’s scores out of 10:
Traffic volume: 9
Stupid/careless parking: 0
No. of cars parking illegally:0
