ROAD CLOSED TO THRU TRAFFIC or LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY tells you that you NEED to take a different route and should only cross the barrier if you have no other option to reach your destination within the restricted area. For example, if the driveway to your home, worksite, a friend or relative’s home can only be accessed on the restricted roadway you are LOCAL TRAFFIC and NOT THRU TRAFFIC. If your destination is outside the restricted area, you must take another route and not go THRU.

It's great that Flash caught the mouse ... but then she wanted to bring it inside!  It took some time to convince her that wasn't going to happen!

I followed the recipe for Ina Garten's Carrot Cake with Ginger Mascarpone Frosting, except I used a half cup of pecans instead of walnuts, and instead of a cup of raisins, I used a half cup of golden raisins and a half cup of dried apricots.  The crystallized ginger in the frosting was wonderful!

I'm probably late in discovering the Ben & Jerry's non-dairy dessert, but this flavor is really good!
