Right Place, Right Time

Yesterday morning when I awakened - 6:30 because I was tired like that - I took little Maddie out and was a bit perplexed by the big white something on the banks of the river. I squinted and kept thinking "Surely that's not a car." But after a minute I determined it was, and I decided to be better safe than sorry and called 911. Within 5 minutes multiple rescue units were on the scene. (I had to snap this image around 7 a.m. as it was too dark at 6:30.)

I'm glad I called. That's a 15-foot drop down the banks of the Black Warrior River, which is heavily trafficked by barges (and the UA intramural rowing teams!). It's raining today in Ttown. Y'all be careful and no river diving!

You now have super powers. What they are exactly, I can't say, but I'm sure the guy on his car appreciates them.
