The Curve Gets Another One   Leave a comment

We got a bit of rain overnight, and it’s been a cool and cloudy day; but occasionally there’ve been some gorgeous cloud formations.  I went out after lunch, figuring I’d get some pictures of those, and then catch Bella up and let her play in the round pen.

As I searched for a good vantage point, however, boarder Kay came up to see if I had heard the noise.  What noise?  The screech and thud from up on the road, that’s what noise.  She thought the tunnel might have gotten another one.

I went back to the house and updated Billy, then hiked down toward the tunnel to see if there had been another wreck.  When I got there, it was pretty obvious that something was going on.  All of the horses down that way were watching the road intently, with good reason.

Luckily, the car involved had missed the tunnel, if not by much.  You can still see the oil splat where the Beamer hit.

Apparently, by the time the first responders got there, the driver was gone.

So, after a while, everyone except one patrol car left, and only a tow truck was needed.  By that time, it was too late to play with Bella — I didn’t want her to get heated running, and then chilled as night came on — but at least I got a couple of cloud shots.  Here’s one . . .

Maybe tomorrow I can do better.
