On the highway through Cranbrook, traffic comes to a stop at the lights at the intersection at 22nd Street North. The lights turn green, but traffic stays stopped, while a duck leads her passel of ducklings across the highway, waddling along the crosswalk, to get to the creek running in front of the Chamber of Commerce office. The vehicles in both directions wait, while the ducks make their best speed, which isn't much. The mother duck strolls calmly, the ducklings nervously cluster together. It's quite a sight - a family of ducks crossing the highway in front of a large delivery truck, which waits patiently until they're past. The ducks reach the other side and head down into the creek. Traffic waits until the lights turn green again, then resumes with a grinding roar.
