There is, of course an official detour. It takes people about three miles north of town, and across to the main north/south road of the area. But, since the Midwest is laid out in grids of roads, we tend to find our own detours and shortcuts. And this summer, apparently our road is the shortcut of choice.
Luckily, the planting season is mostly over, but chopping hay will begin soon, if indeed it hasn't already. All those city folks used to zipping along are not going to take kindly to that. They already are rather impatient at the occasional tractor and trailer. It is a risk to even get the mail.
Its going to be a long summer.
