Yesterday I was driving around the northern suburbs on a series of fruitless errands. Most of the roads had snow berms along them. I realized where I'd had this particular driving experience before: it all reminded me of driving in hedgerow country, like in Cornwall or Devon.

Hedges are higher, and of course they're green and not white. But I had to take the same kind of care when reaching a junction, because they blocked my sight lines to crossing traffic in the same way. The snow berms also narrowed the roads somewhat, although they still weren't as narrow as roads commonly are in Britain and Ireland. And I didn't have to look out for sheep as I came around a bend!

It was a fun thing to be reminded of on an otherwise irritating evening.
