Yesterday I came to the intersection of two major highways in Kindersley.  Kindersley is known to have heavy truck traffic.  I expected to see trucks headed this way and that.  But none to be headed into the ditch.

Truck in ditch - Dec 18, 2012 smallI guess I arrived a few minutes late.  The truck was already in the ditch.  Apparently ice under foot (or is that under tire) had surprised the driver.  Although the driver may have been going slowly, the ice demanded too much.  And into the ditch they headed – truck, trailer and driver.  I’m sure the driver was more embarrassed than hurt.

Lesson for this morning?  For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere – watch your step, or is that your driving!
