When a tree falls on your car, it makes a very loud sound
File this under: Monday’s suck.
I came home to a naturally occurring traffic calming event yesterday, unfortunately my car was caught underneath it.
I wasn’t home, but neighbors were quick to call, tweet, and lend a helping hand–thank you to them. Everyone who had gathered was later calmed by the quick presence of the Lincoln Street public work crew. Thanks E! (Yes, you’re right, the front end loader is articulated).
As we waited for the trees to be cleared, beer was poured in honor of a car well driven and much appreciated. We shall see if it survives the calculations of the insurance company or if it is cast out to the scrapyard. If so, I’ll find a way around without it. After all, we can walk; we are designed to. And, it might just be time to get a peer-to-peer car share program up and running.
And, for the record, I’m still a strong supporter of 24-7 on-street parking.
Still, Monday’s suck.
