Traffic jam

I was on my way to my every six weeks hair appointment.  I've traveled this route many times.  It's a no brainer.

Except, after I turned off I-390 and onto Ridgeway Avenue going west toward Long Pond. . . why are all those cars stopped in both directions just ahead, I wondered.  Come on. . . on a Saturday morning, there is not a lot of traffic along this route.

As I got closer, I saw the problem.  Canadian Geese.  They are a real problem in this town.  There were, perhaps 50 of them, idly crossing Ridgeway Avenue.  They would slowly walk, in single file across the busy road, never mind that they were holding up traffic in both directions.  Then, one or more of them would stop and look at the cars.  Makes you wonder what is going through their minds.

This went on for quite awhile.  Fortunately, I always leave early for appointments so I still had time for this nuisance.  I took a couple of pictures with my iPhone.  But from my vantage point, 5 or 6 cars back, you can barely see the little brats in the pictures.

  1. I'm sure it wasn't amusing then, but I have to laugh when I wonder what they might have been thinking when they stopped to look at the cars.
