Summer rains flush out turtles

Be on the lookout for turtles in the roads. Box turtles will start moving after a warm rain. Today and tomorrow offer the perfect circumstance after several weeks of heat. Temperatures over 90 seem to push them into the shade and into wet areas. Alas, yesterday’s thundershower may have prompted one to cross Gates Chapel near the ETC station, where it was struck by a car.
