So, here we are at Week 3 of the Potski Front Flower Bed Spring Watch (note to self; MUST do something about that title).
Here it is.
As you can see, there have been vast improvements since last week. Vast. Spectacular. Look, I'll prove it to you. This week, again:
And last week:
Oh, who am I kidding? There's no bloody change. In fact, there may even be more snow on the ground this week than last...
Time for another Potski reconstruction to alleviate the boredom, then. This week children, we're looking at a classic morning on the highway.
Just another day. Just another day when all the traffic feeds into the left-hand lane of the schosse (get me with my local word for highway) for no other reason than that each car wants to avoid the attentions of the two gentlemen on the left (heaven only knows what uniform they're wearing) and above all, avoid eye-contact with them as they drive to work.
It's well known here that the last - the absolute LAST thing you do when behind the wheel of a car is actually look directly at any semi-official person on the side of the road.
If you do mistakenly catch their eye, you stand a much higher chance of being directed out of the traffic and then encountering the scenario I described in last week's Front Flower Bed Spring Watch... Of course, this may also result in the odd accident when you look so hard in the other direction from the person in uniform that you don't notice the driver in front of you doing the same thing and not spotting you pulling in from the right, but... at least there will be a policeman nearby to deal with the paperwork.
Glass half-full. That's me.
