The Village People Drive Big Trucks

Today I watched a crew move (very slowly) a huge transformer.  I learned many things.  One of them was it’s not “Wide Load” anymore…it’s “Oversize Load”.

It was quite a production.  They have to spin the traffic lights and there is a guy with an electric wire pole that pushes the over head wires as high as he can.

Of course traffic was backed up for several miles…

And this poor cop trying to direct traffic was forced to make faces at all of the stupid drivers who couldn’t quite get their collective acts together…

I know…how lame is my life that I think a giant transformer being transported is the coolest thing I’ve seen this week, lol.
