Plowing Nightmare
    #3816230 - 02/22/05 12:15 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

So I plow for a local town, and we got some snow the other night. 

I was a little pissed because the truck I got for that night only had an AM radio, but thats better than nothing.

But anyway, it was about 3 am when I was cruising through a rich ass neighborhood, when I noticed the truck was smoking from under the hood.  I came to a stop and hopped out. 

I noticed by this time that there were flames licking out of the hood, and fire dripping onto the road from somewhere in the engine block.  I grabbed my shit out of the truck and hauled ass about a block away to call my boss.  He showed up minutes later, and was obviously upset that his piece of shit truck lit on fire.

The scary part was that this particular truck also served as a refueling truck for the tractors that were scattered throughout the town.  So there was a full 100 gallon tank of diesel fuel on the back of this burning truck.  This killed my fading high instantly.

The cops showed up within 5 min, and were knocking on doors telling people to leave their house and stand blocks away in the snow at 3 in the morning.

The truck was engulfed in flames by the time the fire trucks showed up (this town only has a volunteer squad, so it took some time to get out there.  They finally arrived and foamed the fire before it worked its way back to the tank. 

The front end and cab were completely destroyed, and my mind was racing about how the outcome would have been if the door was jammed or something like that.  Or if hadn't been a diesel truck...

Sorry for the long post, but damn that shook me up  :eek:

Yeah, watching a vehicle burn to the ground is great.  I've done it a few times.  Luckily it was never a vehicle I was driving! :tongue:

You invented the wheel....You push the motherfucker!!
