This evening, I read about a fire engine that crashed into a Dairy Queen in Farmersville Texas. The Engine, less than a year old, was being driven by a non-firefighter, city employee who was returning it from the shop.
Well, there goes a half million dollars and a gross of waffle cones.
It was raining, the road was leaf-covered and I accidentily edged the front wheel off the pavement onto the ” Really Soft Shoulder” at about 10 mph. Luckily, we were able to offload the water from the tank, losing several tons of water weight and get towed out with no damage to the engine.
My pride, not so much, but at least I didn’t destroy a Dairy queen.
