So, I’m sitting at my desk at home working on some business stuff when I hear what sounds like a large tree hit my house. I can’t say that I’d be surprised at that, there was approximately 3/4″ of ice on my car this morning when I left for work.
Interested, but not fully concerned, I went downstairs, mentally preparing myself to see a gaping hole in my living room wall with a hefty ash tree saying, “Howdy neighbor!” Thankfully, that wasn’t the case. No tree in the living room. At this point, my curiosity is starting to peak. I poke my head outside – nothing. No downed trees, no airplanes in the yard, nothing. Back to work.
5 minutes later I hear sirens. Hrrmm, interesting. First, I hear a loud boom, then 5 minutes later – sirens. Oh ya, that got me out of my chair right quick. What you don’t know is, there’s a gas station a few hundred feet down the road from my house. Large boom. Sirens. Ya, I was pretty much thinking the same thing.
Long story short, I arrive at the gas station and I find myself looking at this:
Fortunately, no one was injured, though I’d say that car is toast – literally.
