BEN WHITE/IH-35 is IMPASSABLE Right now...

August 18th, 2006 (04:02 pm)

DO NOT GO NEAR IT!!!

I just spent 30 minutes in 100+ on the scooter going 4 blocks.

*HAS HEAT STROKE*

I do not know WHAT has happened, but it stretched in all four directions at the
intersection--cops ambulances....
Cars stopped in ALL FOUR directions as far as I could see.

DO NOT GO NEAR THAT INTERSECTION RIGHT NOW!!!

I pulled a few no-no's to get out of it to a surface street...but the cars and trucks
are probably still sitting where I was.

Not looking forward to hearing what has happened.
This is bigger than a wreck.

See the route that gev and I were talking about for you to get to work. It's GOTTA be better than anything dealing with frontage roads. I'm glad I'm at JP's, drinking a coffee in the nice cold back room after getting drizzled on and trying to kill myself on the slick streets. Here's to the two-wheeled die-hards! What's the shirt Charlie wants to make? Hard to kill? ;)
