  • Kablamo !

    Came across this scene this morning but couldn't stop to take a pic. On the way back a couple hours later, the electric company was there to replace the pole.

    Hard to believe but the only thing protecting those NG transmission lines is a chain link fence, and from the angle that this car came from, a unlucky (or maybe lucky) electric pole. Had it not been for the pole, the car might have hit one of those pipes and then as Homer would say;

    "KABLAMO !"

    This is a county road but heavily traveled in the morning and after work. Easily over 1500 cars, trucks, and school busses on average per day.

    Light is faster than sound. That's why some people seem really bright until you hear them speak.

    I'd hate to be around if someone did hit those and rupture them!

    I'd throw more things away, but I'm afraid someone might want them...
