|A snapping turtle crossing the
road in Norway, Maine.
Good evening from the Free Technology for Teachers World Headquarters in Woodstock, Maine. Earlier today while walking back to my truck after getting coffee at my favorite coffee shop, Cafe Nomad, I saw a snapping turtle trying to cross the road. I stopped to make sure he didn’t get hit by traffic. The nice thing about small towns is that people have time to let turtles cross the road.
