The ribbons mark some of the trees that will be spared during the biggest highway construction project in Anne Anindel County history. They also symbolize attempts by the State Highway Administration to mini- mize disruptions from construction of a 2S-mile interstate local officials said. Throughout Anne Arundel high- ways are spreading faster than wildflow- ers this spring. Bulldozers have created huge craters next to Route 50 and tha hills of Crownsville a memory. They have turned scenery along Route 450 from lash But the projects haven't frayed many nerves among motorists or nearby resi- dents. For most the overturned dirt symbolizes eventual relief from traff- ic according to local officials.

We're booked until Monday filling pools and said Russell Monroe of Hardesty are scared to use wells because they're so dry that they're afraid the pump will burn he said. And while the drought is becoming a nightmare for many not all of them are pacing the floor. Davidsonville farmer Martin Zehner says this is the best time to cut and bale hay. perfect for harvesting. I hate it when people say they hope it rains and I have to Zehner said. But there are downfalls. The ground is too dry to re-grow hay for a second he said. The state Department of Agriculture says the entire county is quickly approaching drought conditions. Only a 10-inch soaking would restore the ground to the normal moisture level.
