Fireball

So we're on the road to the RNC protest on I-80 in PA and there's a semi truck on fire. Like a huge raging bonfire.

So that's going to be a delay. We're sitting here with a hundred or so other cars waiting for them to put out the fire and clear the road.

This explains the burning smell we smelled a few miles back.

So anyway, if you hear a story of a bad fire on I-80...we're fine.

EDIT:

After a long wait they finally opened the road again. It was a burning trailer full of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The driver was fine. The trailer truck was completely torched.

We met folks from 4 buses all from Chicago heading to the protest.
