    It appeared to be some gardening truck that had spilled its contents across three lanes on 440. They shut down the lanes and fire trucks were on the scene, bringing traffic to a crawl.

    The truck was a Wonder-Bread/ Merita Truck loaded with Twinkies and Butter Bread rushing to the supermarkets to get stocked up for the big snow storm but, come to find out, these trucks are usually smoke blowing, bald tires and junk. At least we know that they really do work while we sleep if you ever read the back door of them.
