En route to a home visit today, I was met at the edge of town by a road crew doing last-minute sealing work before the onset of winter (despite what you may have heard, Wisconsin only has two seasons—winter and road construction!). As I sat mildly frustrated at the wait until they let us pass, I found myself wondering how many of the road crew, might actually be my patients. (In the end, no faces were familiar, but still it left me thinking).
The home visit was actually relatively straightforward, nothing new going on, no new needs requiring attention. On departing, I decided to both avoid another road construction delay, and take some back roads into town that I seldom explore.
