On the way into the office this morning, I heard on the radio that I-85 at Sugarloaf Parkway was closed in both directions due to an overturned truck. The situation was potentially dangerous for anyone in the vicinity because the truck was carrying Ammonium Nitrate and blasting caps. Basically, it was a bomb waiting to go off.
Now, I’m no scientist (I’ll leave that kind of stuff to fellow blogger Daniel), but here’s a tip for the guys transporting that material: In the future, geniuses, why not ship the explosives and the detonators IN SEPARATE TRUCKS.
It’s like packing a truck full of hemophiliacs, and then tossing in a bag of super-sharp razor blades. Two great things that do NOT go great together.
