Some years ago all of our roads were known only by route numbers and our mailboxes were just numbers along an RD route. We didn’t have a real street address.
Then the county began a project to give every road a name to insure accurate identification for emergency vehicles. Houses were numbered accordingly.
On some streets with few houses, the people were allowed to name their road as long as they had consensus and didn’t duplicate any other name.
“Easy Street” was a synonym for the good life back in the old days and even a song in the musical “Annie”
Running down Easy Street was very pleasant and nicely shaded on a typical hot southern morning. However, what goes down must come up.
At this point the road did not seem appropriately named at all.
I was about halfway back when I took this picture.
To paraphrase another song: “Summertime…and the runnin’ ain’t easy” (at least not on Easy Street).
