    Today was this guy's day.

    There was a 50-vehicle pile-up on the ice in Eastern Oregon this morning. That bit of... stuff in between two trucks there is (was) a Chevy Silverado. The driver somehow climbed out and required two band-aids.

    Here it is with one of the trucks pulled away. That's the Silverado guy watching, on the left, in black.

    I got caught in one of those chain-reaction things a couple of years ago. By the time I realized I was getting boxed in a little too much by traffic, everybody was sliding. Fortunately, we were moving very slowly by the time anything impacted, but it was still the end of my 4-runner. (Although it did limp home 9 miles on its own power.)

    I still can't quite figure this out... Maybe the opening where his head is was the drivers door? So maybe the pickup was already on its side when the second truck piled into its bottom?


    They keep editing the story... now it's a 26-car pile-up.

    I simply can't understand the photo.
