I got a text message in between classes from Nicole. "We have had no power since 8 this morning. A tractor trailer ran through the middle of Johnson's Market and took down power lines. Not good."

This story was expanded upon a bit when I got to work. Apparently, a customer this morning was an eye witness to the event and said the truck was just parked in the middle of the building. That's just crazy. And not in a cute little old lady who flings macaroni salad across the dinner table kind of way.

I can't help but wonder what was going on with that driver. Why did he run through the place? Was he angry that they weren't yet open? Was he under the influence of some sort of judgment inhibiting chemical? Was he swatting at a bug? There's a good chance that I'll never know the answer to these questions.

Update: The Greenes just happened to come through my drive through at the bank. Kevin said that it looked like only about 3 feet of the back of the trailer was visible. The rest of it was firmly inside the restaurant. Luckily, no one was injured inside. Still not sure about the driver.
