Our county road grader is a welcome sight! I should probably bake a batch of cookies for the operator–he does make our dirt road driving much more enjoyable!
Just the other day, Granny wondered out loud what causes washboarding. Not this kind of washboarding (although, I’ve seen this band play and I might have an idea!).
But, rather the kind that makes your car bounce all over the dirt road. It turns out–thank you Google–low moisture and high traffic are the two primary causes of the washboard effect.
Surely, you have driven down a road that feels like a washboard? Next time, try singing your favorite song while bouncing down the road (and you wondered what we do for fun in the country).
