I was driving out on an errand today along a major road, and there was a road crew that was clearing brush and mulching it on the side of the road. There was a flag lady with her *slow* sign, and she was just standing there holding it out...totally oblivious to what the work crew was doing next to the road. All of a sudden I see something coming towards me out of the corner of my eye. I knew there wasn't anyone in the other lane, so I swerved into the other lane to avoid it. The next thing I know, my car is being pelted by pine cones and small broken branches. I look in my rear view mirror and see that there is a tree is laying almost completely across the lane that I was in. I can't believe these idiots. You can't just fall trees next to a busy road like that. I just feel lucky that my car wasn't damaged (other than some sap on the paint), and that nobody got hurt.

Wow stick! Somebody upstairs is watching you.
Ya... either helping me out to avoid the tree...or knocking the tree down in my direction for kicks!

Which car were you in? Scary stuff. Trees don't just put dents in cars, they crush them.

I was driving my white Si (daily driver). The worst thing about it to, was that if I was hit by that tree, I would've had zero visibility...and there's a strong likelihood that I would've hit the flag lady as well as write-off my car.
