Second month.

Saturday, February 1st, 2020

I can report a certain sense of relief now that the calendar has turned over and we are in the second month of 2020. February! Not quite spelled like it is pronounced! Garden month of…well, not the northern hemisphere. Wellspring of positivity!

I like how this traffic cam picture, from GDOT via WSB-TV’s website, has a helpful yellow arrow.

On the other hand, a truck with 8500 gallons of fuel rear-ended a silver Volkswagen on I-85 just north of the perimeter and flipped several times this morning. The resulting fire and fuel dump drained into the sewer system, causing multiple underground explosions. Truck driver and VW driver were killed.

Atlanta. City of freeways. City of freeway-proximate conflagrations.
