We’re gonna take a brief pause from catching up on the last couple of posts from the Blue Lake homecoming tour because I wanted to post something that I saw last night while driving to have dinner with my friends Will and Aaron, who were visiting nearby Dodge, TX for the week.
The drive on I-45 N at 5:30pm isn’t exactly the quickest of drives and stops occur frequently due to general congestion and the occasional accident. So it wasn’t much of a surprise to have to stop for a while. That is, until three fire trucks and about eight police cars meandered their way through the traffic. Oh yeah and the two news helicopters I could see floating a couple of exits down. It wasn’t until I detoured on the feeder road that I discovered this was causing all the fuss:
Needless to say it made the news this morning (and even showed up on Gawker!)
PS— For anyone interested I actually took my picture while stopped at the stoplight on the feeder… just sayin’
