For some weird reason, I was up and ready early today. I know, it was a freak occurrence and probably won’t happen again anytime soon. I figured since I was up and I was ready to go, I might as well go to work early. It was a BRILLIANT plan. As it happened, as soon as I got on the freeway, the traffic began to stop. But, it’s okay, I was early and I had good music to listen to so, I was in a pretty patient frame of mind. So, I get over the first little hill and what do I see rising up into the morning sky? Smoke. So, as I try to peer through the vehicle in front of me’s lightly tinted windows to see what the hell is going on, I see there is a car stopped in the middle of the freeway with smoke rising. As I get closer, I notice the whole front of the car is engulfed in flames. Naturally, like any sane person would do, I pulled out my almost-always-present camera and snapped some pictures. Because I was being patient, I was in the correct lane to exit quickly and get back on the freeway still making it to work early but now with some pictures of a car on fire. Really, can a day start any better than this?
OKAY! My day got a little better. I contacted the guy at caller.com and, they are using my picture of the burning car in their story. Go check it out here http://caller.com/news/2007/dec/21/car-fire-spid/
