OMG it's raining! Ahhhh! Actually it was more of a steady mist, but defintely enough to send our skittish San Diego commuter population into a frenzy. "What is this glistening, moist, slippery substance all over everything, and WHERE DID IT COME FROM!?!?" Unlike the light rail or Coaster, the bus uses the same roads as everyone else, so when there is traffic, we get slowed down too. I'll tell you this though, listening to my Ipod and reading a book is great way to sit in traffic.
Once again my walk into work brought me across some things that I stopped to take a look at. (Oh btw I did go and slimjim that guy's car yesterday at lunch and turn off his lights. Forgot to leave a note though.) The wreck pictured here happened just as I was approaching the intersection. The Crown Victoria flat out rear ended the Explorer after skidding a good 20-30 yards because she was hauling ass down a wet street. She smashed into him and sent both cars spinning and up onto the sidewalk. The airbag deployed in the Crown Vic and everyone walked away fine. Here's the crazy part. Just before all of this happened. I had just crossed Genesee and was walking down Executive Drive when I saw a baby rat on the sidewalk. It was breathing and obviously alive, but it wasn't moving and didn't scurry away when I walked up. I thought it was weird so I took a video.
Ok, so big deal. There is some kind of semi-paralyzed rat hanging out on the sidewalk. Well, what was he doing there? Saving me from getting runover maybe. The time I took to stop and record his weirdness is the just about the same amount of time that would've put me right on that corner in time to get creamed by the slippin' and slidin' Fords.
Ty little guy.
