life on mars
On my way home from the office this evening, like most evenings, I had a choice between two routes.
Both take the same amount of time but one consists of 50% more country roads.
With the forecast for blowing and drifting snow, I chose the interstate heavy route.
10 minutes from mi casa, I came upon an overturned truck in a ditch.
As I sat for an hour as the vehicle was pulled back onto the road, I entertained myself by taking photographs of the countryside illuminated by the mars lights from the emergency vehicles on the scene.
