Seen Today

A mangled flipped over cement powder tanker. Somebody is probably going to be losing their CDL privileges for awhile.

A 22 car freight train, which may not seem too unusual, until you consider that 7 of the cars were hauling 2 Case combines a piece, and another 2 of the cars were stacked high with combine tires. That's a pretty expensive train.

A Stryker ICV tooling down eastbound I-80 going about 50 mph. I did a double take, because while military vehicles aren't a complete rarity on our roads, they're usually just Humvees and deuce and a halfs from the local National Guard units. It was a full up Stryker complete with crewman in ACUs standing in the commander's hatch enjoying the breeze. I have no idea where it was going or what it was doing.
