A Snowy Drive
Today was a beautiful, crisp winter day,
so I decided to take the long way home on my way back from town.
I don't often go down by the lake in the winter,
simply because the access roads are usually hazardous.
But as the road crews have been busy clearing the roads this past week,
I decided to travel that way.

Wonder where this squirrel is headed?
Guess he found a way to avoid the traffic.
Driving down to the lake.
Just don't go off the road as there is quite a drop on either side.
There the sun never gets a chance to warm the pavement,
melting the snow and ice.
Poor, poor farmer is still hanging around.
This road is usually flooded here in the spring
and actually becomes part of Lake Monroe.
it looks like the main body of Lake Monroe is ice-free.
as they wish to preserve a natural view from the lake.
