The above photo is a satellite view of a granite or limestone quarry in Illinois, near the Indiana border.
As you can see, Interstate 80 crosses the vast open pit and is supported in two areas by “pillars” holding the road up.
The first time I went over this huge hole was while riding with Joe. Scared the bejeesies out of me. Heck, everything scared me in 1999.
Traveling across the bridge you don’t see much of what is below, except you do know you are traversing a big pit.
We delivered trucks in the Chicago area this morning. Tomorrow we are picking up trucks out of Fort Wayne, Indiana and taking them to Fargo, North Dakota. Brrr brrr brr. The overnight temperatures in Fargo are going to range from 25 to 32 this coming week. The daily highs will be in the mid to upper 50’s.
Yes, you can hear it now, can’t you 🙂
This week and next we will be in for some massive temperature fluctuations. Leaving Fargo we will be staying in the colder climates while traveling to Cedar Rapids, Iowa taking trucks to Orlando, Florida where it is sunny and 89 degrees.
Leaving home in shorts and sandals we have changed to long pants and socks and shoes.
I grew up with people saying “shoes and socks”. My addled brain has always had pictures of socks over the shoes.
Is there a familiar saying in your life that, when taken literally, is backwards to what is meant?
Thank you all for leaving your comments on the Road kill legislation. I got a kick out of everything you guys said. I appreciate you all.
