Probably feeling like he's glad his insurance is paid up!


I don't do snow.

And aren't you glad!

The truck driver was still in his truck and he survived with only a few broken bones. Wow! Lucky him but it must've been awful scary.

I'm not a tow_guy...but I watch "Wrecked" on TV.....

Kinda seems to me the driver had his wheels turned towards the edge or something was broken. Either that or someone had his cables hooked up wrong.

Yeah, the cable between both halves of his brain!! I'm with you TG, don't do snow, or stay at home.

It looked like the tow guy swung a little wide to make the curve ahead and the truck swung a little wider.

I spent three weeks above the Arctic Circle in Norway in the late 80's; some of those roads are pretty hairy even without the snow (I was there in September, no snow but still cold).

I wonder if the two vehicles are still at the bottom of that hill.

Tromso? I did some work in Tromso a few years ago. I was given a week to do the job. It took a little over a day to finish and I had the rest of the time to enjoy the area. Fortunately it was mid August with 24 hour daylight. It's a pretty awesome place.

I'm not sure I would want to visit in the winter though. The locals called it the "dark time". I guess the suicide rate is pretty high.
