Road hazard

I interrupt the previously planned post to bring you this awful sight, but let me first point out that Dick was NOT injured:

dump truck

The dump truck was totaled, but we don’t care about that.  We have another one.  I do not have another husband, nor do I want to break in another one!

The location is the road he has been working on, and this was the last pass of the day along the edge, where Dick was compacting the surface treatment with the heavy truck.  The truck got over at too much of an angle, did a slow roll, crushing the cab, breaking windows, and making a general mess, but Dick was able to crawl out of the upper window…with only a slight cut on a finger.  At least he thought to use his cell phone for the photo to show me.

We can live without this much excitement, thank you very much.

I am counting my blessings…and so is Dick.

Life is precious.  Go hug your loved ones, y’all!

Barb said...

Mercy! So glad Dick is OK!

As an aside... I find it fascinating that you own at least 2 dump trucks.

Stay safe! Big hugs :]

Aie aie aie! Tell him that the 3rd time will probably NOT be a charm for him!!! Also, Logan says that he's not so interested in this dump truck anymore. LOL

Seriously, I thank God that he is okay! Hopefully his guardian angel can continue to keep up with him. Love you both!

I'm so happy this post has a happy ending. Yikes honey. I would have been scared silly.

I hug my loved ones every single day. I've a feeling that you do too.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you both. :)

Oh good Lord! That could have been so much worse than it was! So glad to hear that Dick is safe and sound with only a minor injury to show.

A good friend of mine lost his brother-in-law in a car accident last night (that I dispatched a paramedic to) - poor guy was only in his early 30's so it just goes to show once again that life can be ended way too quickly and without warning. We should all tell those that we love how we feel every day because you just never know.

Scary stuff.

Oh my word! I know I am late, but sheesh. So glad that he escaped. How very frightening.
