Looked for this one in MoS, but didn't find anything.

I'm of the belief that you use the term "farther" when
you are describing a physical distance . . . "It is
farther from Roseville to Davis, than from Sacramento
to Davis."

"Further" would describe non-physical ideas . . . "I
am further along in the project than I expected."

Am I correct? Then again, it may be more a matter of
consistency. The terms may be interchangeable . . .
