    I'm not sure why we do this but it was a delight to drive behind it. I wish I could play with the guys water gun



    Also I saw a transport truck get on a ferry today. I was eating a poutine and the ferry was swaying so hard it made me disoriented
     
  2. In the US they do this after sowing grass seed

    They spray on grass seed, spray on straw, then water it if it doesn't rain. It seems a bit late in the year for it as it should be covered in snow soon. I suspect they are concerned that someone will throw a cigarette butt and start the straw on fire.

    To provide cover so the ground stays moist and warm until the grass seed germinates and isn't washed away by rain.
