An Empty Interstate: Everyone Is Staying Home


I took this photo of the empty Interstate 89 while we were passing through Brookfield, Vermont. We encountered no more than a dozen cars on the route. We were on our way to meet up with our daughter and her family at a half-way point - in Hanover, NH - between our homes to swap Easter presents. We sadly maintaining many feet between us of course. No hugging; and the two little grandkids never even got out of their car seats. I blew them kisses through the car windows.
