Suicidal Firewood

After narrowly dodging a mudslide in the Siskyou mountains, that closed the entire Interstate for hours, we trudged northward toward Canada when we came across this in the road:

The tree covered 3/4 of the road and actually fell on the logging truck that you can see on the on the left side of the picture, breaking his smoke stack and crushing the passenger side window. What a crappy day he must be having.

I guess this tree wasn't having a good day either since it decided to end it all in the middle of the Interstate. Um, not a very smart or safe thing to do there, Mr. Tree. I will be seeing your ass in the fireplace.

As for me, I will be ringing in the New Year in Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island. Good food, good company, a beautiful city and so many things to look forward to in the coming year. This past year has been wonderful so to think it is going to be better next year? Wow.

Happy New Year to you all. I wish you health, prosperity and happiness!! See you next year!
