There is an alley that runs behind my house. Typical for an alley and very narrow. A little bitty street T's into it from the opposite direction of my house. For some reason, a semi driver turned onto that street (even if lost, it's very obvious that it's not a semi friendly street) and then tried to make a right at the alley. She had to stop to avoid running her trailer into a big boulder at the little corner there. Even if she had missed that, she would have nailed a telephone pole. She backed up and got turned a bit and then tried to make a left. I'm watching this because 1) it's the first interesting thing to happen in the neighborhood in ages and 2) if she makes that left, chances are she's going to wipe out part of my fence. To do the turn, she had to go onto the grassy area beside the pavement. That area is always wet and after rains (which we have had) is almost swamplike. She got stuck and stuck good. The cops are there and wind up calling in a special tow truck. Once he got her out of the mud, he had to assist her to get the truck turned to the right again to avoid the pole and then had to drive around the block and come in from the other direction to hook up to the trailer and drag it out enough to avoid the boulder. She FINALLY gets straightened out and goes to the end of the alley which T's at a main street. Guess what? There's another boulder at that corner. She couldn't get past THAT one either so the tow guy had to drag the trailer again. I kind of felt bad for the woman because there were a few of us out in our yards, talking over fences and watching the whole process. But like I said, the street she originally turned on is very obviously NOT semi friendly and she was only a block down from a main street. (oh and um.....yeah.......got some pictures too) When she finally left the area, we all wandered over to check out the ruts. The neighbor's 4 year old stood in one and was knee deep in it. Plus the street where the trailer was drug over is actually buckled and hilled up like if you drug something through dirt. It's just a mess back there. I have some pictures on my phone and will send them to my email but I'll have to charge the phone first. I don't think it has enough juice to send one at the moment.
