Ice is Slippery

Sorry city of Morris, but you don't salt or put sand down on your roads, especially around corners. My truck won, your light pole lost.

The town I live in doesn't throw down anything on their roads, the county roads are salted nicely. This is a really popular cuve, I was taking it slow but my truck wanted to keep going straight and the pole lost the battle.

It's a shame you were not going in reverse. Bad that it happens. I hate to see a Ford truck hurt. What year is that 97 or 98? I've got a 98, but my hitch cover is a salt spreader. What irony. But hey I bet they cost close to the same amt.

haha, Are you referring to my tail gate hitch? I didn't have it at that time. It is a 2002 F150 that I hit it with. Just glad it wasn't my personal truck It scratched up the bumper a little, small dent, no biggie. Wonder how much that pole costs to fix?!

Hey, my personal vehicle is a '98 EB Expedition. I think the city of Morris can afford a new pole. Take a few bucks from the pile they spend on Corn Fest, it'll be fine.

 

Nice shot,

Yes I was refering to your hitch cover. I wouldnt worry about that pole much. I just took one out at an Auto Zone in the middle of our last snow storm. I had been driving that truck for 40 hours w/o stopping. I was like who put that pole in the middle of the parking lot. Oh well, they have insurance. Just made me mad that I put a dent into my bumper. But hey like you said at least it wasn't my aviator.

haha, nice. They should have made this pole out of metal, as you can see it is cheap cement cast. I did this back late January early Feb. We'll see how long it takes to replace.
