Yesterday on the way to Abilene, we met the DOT trucks and they were spraying the roadway.
Vince: What the heck are they doing?
Me: It looks like they’re washing the road?
Vince: Why would they wash the road?
Me: I guess it’s dirty!
Vince: Isn’t it going to get dirty again?
Me: I keep vacuuming and the floor keeps getting dirty!
Vince: That has to be a huge waste of money – washing the road!
On the way back from Abilene, we met them again, going the other direction. That’s when it hit me . . they were pre-spraying the road for the ice/snow storm coming today.
We both laughed and decided it’s nice to live where spraying the roads ahead of a snow storm is a rare thing to see.
