A few seasons in one day

Earlier this evening there was a downpour. This is a stark contrast to the heavy, though brief, snowfall we experienced this morning. I’d been peeking outside periodically to see what mother nature is bringing and I noticed a police car stopped in the intersection.

What’s the problem in the intersection? I have no fricking idea because the huge snowbank was blocking the scene! I never did see the officer, anyone else, or any other vehicles. I looked again a half-hour later, and the cruiser was gone.

What you can finally see is an old tire sticking out of the snowbank in the lower left corner of the image. Who disposes of tires in a snowbank?

    -Who disposes of tires in a snowbank?

    The same losers who throw out whole bags of garbage in the ditch. Disposing of tires costs $5 per tire.

    Country living is great until you learn there is no garbage pick up so you have to truck it to the dump where you pay. Solution drive to work and throw it in the ditch on the way.

    Conclusion: as long as there is a cost at the end of a product’s life there will be trash dumped anywhere (read- ditch). Add the $5 to the purchase of the tire and your eliminate the litter, hey it worked with used motor oil. You can drop that slop off at Precambrian Tire for free.
