Damn Their Hides

What was a road lightly treed on the west, my regular walking route (you've seen plenty of photos), looked like this when we returned. It was a bit of a shock.

Yep. Just beyond this mess are the two driveways that lead into our yard.

Supposedly some of this carnage, which includes ditching, will help drain water away from our property, so I oughtn't to howl (considering the moisture problems we've had since we bought the place). The rest of the destruction might keep the road from blocking in with snow during the winter, and perhaps it will give the landowner an extra acre or two to put into crop.

What can I say. Maybe it's for the best, and maybe it isn't, but I still hate it.


  1. Damn their hides---a surprisingly genteel reaction.

  2. I know how you feel....we have alot of "foliage" that stands in the ditch between our house & the road. The other day I came home and most of it was thinned to the point of being gone due to clearing space for the hydro lines.
    It blocked the view from the road to our living room and now I feel like we're on display.

  3. Oh dear. I hope your road isn't heavily travelled.
