Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

Thursday Jinx Strikes Again

Since I started working from home on Fridays, Thursdays on the roads have been more of a nightmare than they were before. I'm actually off today because one of the kids is ill, but if I had tried to get to work, I would have encountered this incident, in which 3 people have died.

A southbound truck hit another truck that was on the hard shoulder (asleep at the wheel? It's around 1000 miles from Warsaw to Northampton) and then careened across the road, smashed through the central reservation, and hit a northbound car. "A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving."

Update: BBC News is reporting that the motorway is still closed, and has been since 04:30 a.m. Southbound may reopen soon, but most alternative routes are completely gridlocked.

So glad I stayed home.

  • It's uncanny. There are fatal accidents that lead to closure on the M1 about three times a week at the moment, non?

  • Indeedy do.

    Good news: we're a week from the solstice, and the days will start getting longer. And this, above all else, is why we have a celebration at this time of year.

    Bad news: still January and February to get through, and Warsaw isn't getting any closer to the English midlands.

  • if anything, warsaw is probably getting further away, what with continental drift and all that.
