Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Today I took a road trip back on the mountain to see how the road work was progressing. It was progressing very well - in fact - it was progressing so well that I watched as they finished up the contract.

I had planned to go home off the north end of the mountain but couldn't resist going back the way I came so I could drive the newly reconditioned road all the way....I wasn't the first to do it because my boss did that earlier but I was in the first 10 so that has to count for something.

I told a lot of people we would fix that road when HELL froze over - there was ice on my windshield last Monday morning. I honestly never thought I would live long enough to see that road fixed. I can hardly wait to hear why I chose to stop doing the road where we did. I am sure it will be all over the street that somebody pissed me off and I quit before their cabin.

L.S. - it is in the middle of the mountain....the road comes up from the west going east from the town to the south.
