Flashing sign

So, we were driving home from church on Wednesday night.  In the past month or so, there’s been a lot of nighttime road construction on Hwy. 65 in Christian County.  Those light-up, three-line-of-text signs are used to let you know what to expect when and where.  There are often lane closures around Ozark, so we are used to slowing down and driving carefully through and/or around whatever’s being done on Wednesday nights between 8:30 and 9:00 PM.

Well, we got down into the hills, and as we passed that huge log Branson ticket information place and headed down toward Busiek, one of those signs appeared, but this one was flashing violently.  It read, “DIAMOND GROVING AHEAD.”  Now, that was a curiosity to me.  What exactly IS diamond groving, anyway?  And does it mean that a diamond groves a certain head?  Just one head?  Any old head?  More to the point, was there any chance that the diamond might grove my head?!?!?

As our single lane of traffic neared the bottom of the hill, we did see a substantial piece of equipment or two doing something significant in the closed-off left lane, so I’m guessing that that was the diamond groving I’d been so strongly flashed about.  However, although I’ve evidently now witnessed diamond groving in action, I’m still not sure what it is.
